SUKARYA COVID 19 RELIEF DRIVE
Sukrya's programs including the Urban Slum Health Actions (USHA) have been on hold due to the Covid-19 outbreak since mid March when the entire India was on a complete lockdown.
The lockdown since March and the loss of livelihood amidst social distancing rules have disproportionately affected our slum communities - migrant workers, daily wage-earners, the urban poor, and other vulnerable groups of women & children in tens of thousands. Hunger, lack of sanitary kits and loss of income to buy essentials have left most or all of them helpless.
The lockdown didn't end on May 31st as scheduled by the health department because the National Capital Region of Delhi that includes Gurgaon continue to be in the Red Zone. Sukarya is in the process to be working on the ground to provide COVID-19 relief and aid along with the preparation to resume its programs including USHA.
The task is monumental. The need is overwhelming. Even after the national initiatives like the PM Cares Fund and efforts from other grassroots non-profits, citizen groups, and civil society organizations, there is still a sizeable population living in our slum communities need to be fed and protected.
