I hope that this note finds you all keeping well. It is hard to believe that the pandemic is over a year old now. While India had made progress towards flattening the curve earlier this year, it now appears that the new variant is wreaking havoc. At the time of me writing this report, there were over 260,000 confirmed new Covid cases there in the past 24-hours. Needless to say, the situation in India is dire.
Our facilities remain open as they have been deemed an essential service by the government. All of our staff have the appropriate personal protective equipment, and no one is allowed in to our facilities without a mask. We have not noticed a drop is usage over the past two weeks, but we will continue to monitor our data as this situation unfolds.
Our aim is to open five new facilities by the end of April in 2022, and develop the first version of a monitoring and evaluation system. We plan to do this in Bokaro, the district where we currently operate in Jharkhand. We remain hopeful that we will be able to achieve these goals despite this second wave in India. As always, I will keep you all updated.
Thank you again for supporting our efforts. Please take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.
