Challenge

Tamil Nadu is registering a record number of COVID-19 cases, exceeding 67,000 as per the 25th of June. Chennai is currently the epicentre of the state. Furthermore, experts fear that there is unrecorded widespread community transmission. In addition to health risk, the pandemic puts significant pressure on economically vulnerable households. Restrictions on movement leaves many unable to generate income, and so unable purchase food, medication or other essential items.

Solution

The project will reduce vulnerability of the most disadvantaged social cohorts by providing nutritional security during lockdown. Beneficiaries will be selected based on risk profiling and focussing on female-headed households, daily wage earners, LGBTQI+ community members, families of migrant workers and women with acute health risk or evidence of domestic abuse. It aims to prevent malnutrition and secondary medical decline of those households.

Long-Term Impact

The project has a significant short-term impact on individuals in the catchment area, mitigating against hunger and illness. In the long run, we aim to reduce inequalities that have been broadening during the COVID pandemic and help return to normal in the post-crisis period.
