A Second Wave of Relief Work

Covid-19 Relief and Response

India is currently grappling with the second wave of Covid-19. Lockdowns have again affected the homeless and migrant workers the most and exacerbated the widespread food insecurity. 

In the Tansa Valley, PRASAD Chikitsa is distributing hot meals twice a day in nearby villages to those who have no other means of subsistence. We intend to do so till the current lockdown is not lifted.

The Anukampa Health Center in Ganeshpuri remains open for diagnosis and treatment so that people receive timely medical attention for non-Covid related health conditions.

Across India, the second wave of Covid-19 has put an immense load on medical infrastructure. PRASAD has partnered with Americares India to distribute essential medical supplies and equipment – from PPE kits to ventilators and oxygen concentrators. 

We are so grateful for your support! Every contribution made by you, your family, and your friends can help save lives.
