Updates on GoodWeave COVID relief

In the spring of 2021, the virus surged in India with hundreds of thousands infected, and thousands of deaths reported. Cases of COVID-19 are increasing significantly in Nepal, and it is unclear whether infection rates have yet peaked in India.

There is a growing shortage of hospital beds, oxygen and PPE everywhere. Despite the risks, many factories and sub-contractors are producing and shipping goods, especially those where workers are living on site. GoodWeave is prioritizing the distribution of PPE and food amongst licensed exporters, as well as assisting in providing vital supplies to non-licensed producers – this is a time to unite across the industry due to the impact the new surges are having on the worker population.

Along with on the ground aid, GoodWeave is conducting information outreach campaigns about the virus, and vaccine availability, as well as exploring more opportunities to increase vaccination distribution.

We have reconfirmed the children in our programs are safe. We have increased resources to allow for more frequent COVID-19 testing, medical support, and things like books, games and movies to help lift the spirits of children who are faced with isolation due to the lockdown.

We are sincerely grateful to you all for supporting us in this critical time. Here’s some specifics on what we’ve accomplished so far during the pandemic:

  1. 22,337 food packets distributed
  2. 93,889 workers and family members provided food aid
  3. 72,550 people provided hygiene aid, including masks
  4. 160,047 people were reached through our network, with reliable information about COVID-19
  5. 6,239 children provided educational programming


Thank you for your continued support and partnership, and please stay safe.
