Summary

India's national lockdown, restricting transit and shuttering most businesses, had a devastating impact on low-wage earners, roadside vendors, and struggling farmers, as jobs were eliminated, road traffic disappeared, and market demand evaporated. This project will fund emergency food and supplies for Tamil Nadu's at-risk populations and outreach efforts to help that access government assistance.

Challenge

India has been hit with a double whammy by the COVID-19 crisis: (1) with people living so closely packed, severe restrictions are needed to limit contagion; but (2) so many people there are so impoverished that the economic impact of these restrictions threatens them with starvation. Most daily-wage workers, roadside vendors and beggars no longer have an income and are faced with ruin and starvation.

Solution

We will dispense hot meals on the street to those with no other hope for a meal, and bags of rice and dal to enable mothers to feed their families without having to worry each night about where the next day's meals will come from. We are also helping impoverished senior citizens, widows, and people with disabilities claim the government support that they may not be aware is available, understand how to claim it, or have the physical or mental ability to do so.

Long-Term Impact

Our works saves thousands from starvation or suicide. Who knows what good the people whose lives we save will bestow upon the world once the pandemic is over?
