The devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in India has upended life as we know it. As supply chains get disrupted and economic activities are adversely affected, low-income households are facing acute economic and social distress. Access to basic amenities like food and essentials have become an uphill challenge for people as low-income households do not have reserve funds or commodities to tide them over in these difficult times and public distribution systems are running dry. Financially and socially marginalized communities in urban areas have been left high and dry without means to their next meal and often times, even a place to shelter. Rural areas, which already face challenges on account of poor infrastructure, have also been severely impacted. The need for intervention and relief measures is critical and urgent as communities continue to struggle for survival against the deadly second wave.
Following up on our Covid-relief work during the 2020 lockdown, the IT for Change team is planning to lead and coordinate a range of critical relief initiatives in the urban poor communities of Bengaluru and the rural communities of Mysuru. To take these initiatives off the ground, we appeal for your support in these difficult times. Every contribution – small or large – will go towards helping someone in need.
