Where and how many we impacted with your support
Dear Well Wishers and Supporters of Anudip Foundation,
Loss of livelihoods has been the most paralyzing aspect of the pandemic. 40+ million migrant daily-waged workers have been hit hard by COVID-19. As they reach home enduring unprecedented ordeals, they face the risk of hunger, indebtedness, and prolonged unemployment. Their families face high infection risk and their children, the loss of learning. Our first response was to raise funds with your support and provide ration and essential supplies to 47,000+ who have expressed the need for it across impoverished locations.

Whilst we continue to engage in the critical work of supplying food and other essential resources to those who need it, we recognize that this is only the beginning of a crisis. It is bound to have a lasting impact on vulnerable groups, far greater than we can foresee. It would require a multi-pronged response strategy both long and short term, addressing challenges faced across various verticals - both in the source and destination areas of migration. We are thus raising funds to scale up capabilities to support the re-building livelihoods of migrant workers, whose occupation is affected by COVID-19 lockdown.
Your funds would be used for the major thee themes:
- EMERGENCY RELIEF: Continue to address immediate needs of migrants through dry ration/ hygiene essentials·
- ALTERNATIVE LIVELIHOODS: Up-skill at least one member of a migrant household acquires a fresh skill·
- PUBLIC HEALTH: Support vulnerable communities in protecting themselves from Covid-19 and help them access medical preparedness using digital tools
How can you help?
