Thank you!

Thank you for your support of vulnerable girls! You are rescuing them from the horrors of trafficking and you are giving them a new life!

Good news! We expect our new 150-bed shelter to open any day now. We were set to open this Spring and then COVID-19 took over. Thankfully, we've been able to safely begin construction again.

The pandemic has put vulnerable girls at an even higher risk for trafficking, violence, and early child marriage. We've got a team of over 140 health workers in remote villages keeping girls in school and rescuing them from dangerous situations.

Please know that this will be the last report from DFN through GlobalGiving. If you'd like to continue following the work of DFN, please sign up for our e-news. You'll find that link on our website. We'd love to stay in touch with new opportunities to keep vulnerable girls safe and sound.

Final Report for COVID 19 Relief

Thank you for your support for healthcare in India during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through generous supporters like you, we distributed more than 1.6 million meals to hungry families. We also expanded our healthcare to include virtual clinics in remote areas.

We are thankful for you and hope you will continue to follow the work of DFN. Please sign-up on our website for our e-news. That will keep you up-to-date on all our initiatives.

You might be interested in becoming a Healthcare Hero, someone who will give monthly to radically expand healthcare access in India. One dollar will provide healthcare for 1 person. So when you give $20/mo, you give 20 people desperately needed healthcare. This is an elite group that we are just beginning in November 2020. If you'd like more information, please email bcook@dfnusa.org.

Again, thank you for caring enough about the people of India to invest in their daily lives.

Healthcare Access for All!

Community Health at Work
Community Health at Work

Thanks to generous donors, the DFN team has been able to provide expansive healthcare initiatives for the poor and marginalized in India. Here's the good news:

HEALTHCARE

  • 36,989 people have received in-person treatment in 9 clinics across India.
  • 12,461 people have received treatment through the brand new virtual medicine initiative.

COMMUNITY HEALTH WORK

  • 134 community health workers are active in over 3700 villages. 
  • They have reached more than 240,000 people, teaching them about hand-washing, social distancing, and getting the sick access to clinics.

FOOD DISTRIBUTION

  • Our team has distributed more than 1 million meals since the lockdown in March!

All of this is possible only because of faithful donors. Life for the poor in India will continue to be very difficult. There is no work for day laborers, which means no income for their families. We will continue to stand in the gap between life and death as long as needed.
