Outbreak of Coronavirus in India is worsening now. Daily confirmed cases exceed 300 thousand several days in a row. The pandemic has caused many deaths in India. Worsening economic condition also leads to a raising number of unemployment. Families have exhausted their savings during the five-month lockdown across the country. Due to collapse of healthcare system, children and women are not only facing food insecurity but also the threat of getting infected. Their safety is at great risk and the situation is heart-breaking and worrying. Please offer your immediate helping hand and join us to save more lives by supporting our emergency relief work!
Other than the threat of getting infected, local children are also facing food insecurity and safety risks.
