We are living in uncertain times. The panic and destruction caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the last 2 months has been unprecedented in human history in terms of its speed and scale of deaths. Despite having the best health facilities, all western countries are struggling to contain this deadly virus and the count of infected people is increasing exponentially each day. This has raised a spectre of a horrifying future for the rest of the world, especially Africa and Asian countries including India, who lack even basic healthcare services for most of their populations.
Sewa International appeals to all its supporters world-wide to come forward and help provide services to the most vulnerable of the population who have no means to fight the global pandemic, COVID-19. Marginalized communities, especially engaged in informal economy, all across India are most vulnerable now, feeling the brunt of lockdown leading to lost wages/jobs, eviction from rented homes, no money to buy essentials, lack of medical assistance, all pointing to a grim future for them.
