Challenge

India battles a catastrophic coronavirus second wave that has overwhelmed hospitals, with crematoriums working at full capacity. The distressing images, the fear and pain is growing with each passing day. The second wave of coronavirus has once again decimated incomes and is threatening food security for the poorest of the poor. COVID 19 has also hit the underprivileged children of India disproportionately. Their education and nutrition are both at severe risk.

Solution

(1) Grocery Support, Medicines & Toiletries for Children at Shelter Homes (2) Oxygen Supply: >Procuring oxygen concentrators to support moderately ill patients. Cost: INR 100,000-150,000; >Procuring Ventilators to support severely ill patients. Cost: INR 500,000-1,000,000; >Procuring oxygen cylinders: Cost: INR 39,000 - 47,000 (3) Financial Aid Support for Daily Wage Earners/Street Vendors (INR 3,500 - 7,000) to meet their living expense of food, water, electricity

Long-Term Impact

Rama sold flowers for a living in her area - Stanley Nagar, Chennai and her husband was a daily wager. Due to the Pandemic, the couple were not able to do their jobs thus, resulting in financial struggles. With the support of donors, Bhumi's COVID Relief Support Team carried out the due diligence and provided financial support to the family. Rama was able to feed her family three meals a day and also started her flower sales with the left-over money, slowly growing her business.
