Donate to support women in India’s informal economy struggling under the second wave of COVID-19
With the second wave of Covid-19 hitting us even harder, women in the informal economy are dealing with the biggest health crisis of their lifetime. We need your support more than ever now to stop the devastating impact of the pandemic on the vulnerable informal women workers and their families. We are inviting donations to make them avail relief resources (health kits, food packets, medicines) and funds to support their livelihoods at the individual and community levels.
In the second wave of the pandemic, the biggest concern has been about healthcare and the need to rush Oxygen to people. On World Hunger Day, let us remind ourselves that a deeper crisis in India and the world over is that of hunger. As Anshu Gupta, Magsaysay Award winner and Founder, Goonj put it, "dal-chawal" is the much needed oxygen for millions of Indians who have been severely impacted over a year with loss of livelihoods.
Analyses by international institutions including the United Nations and the World Bank show just how devastating the pandemic has been on the global sustainable development goals of the 2030 Agenda, in particular those focused on ending hunger and poverty. The crisis has set development efforts back by years, if not decades. Far from "Zero Hunger", the number is now predicted to come close to one billion.
The good news is that you have the power to reduce hunger!
You could also plan your own efforts to cook and distribute extra meals once a week or even every day!
