COVID-19 Relief Operation

COVID-19 Relief Operation In India

Sewa International Australia is grateful to the Western Australian government grant to entrust various organizations through their grant support for India during the second wave of COVID-19. We would like to thank our supporting organizations, without which we could not have made such a difference to our families in India. We would like to especially thank ISWA for their meaningful association over the years. We would also like to thank organizations like AIMA, TAWA, Hindi Samaj Western Australia for their trust.  

Sewa International appealed to all its supporters worldwide 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 the 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.

Current Relief Efforts being done to serve the covid-19 affected patients (second wave) in India
  1. The second wave of COVID-19 has hit India hard. It has impeded India’s social and economic recovery following the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. In the last 30 days, India saw a 6-fold increase in daily cases and registered the highest single day spike in covid cases in the week of April. With 3 million active cases, the impact of the pandemic can be witnessed across the country. During this pandemic, the worst affected social group is the urban poor and slum dwellers.
  3. Sewa International has built upon its 2020 COVID-19 relief efforts by augmenting its activities. Accordingly, Sewa International decided to work on a T-model intervention for the pandemic:
  4. Breadth: Awareness, Essentials, and Digital Helpdesk
  5. Depth: Oxygen, and Vaccination
  6. The breadth involves interventions that provide quick relief, and immediately impactful in saving lives and livelihoods. The depth ensures systematic strengthening, long-term sustainability while also providing an immediate layer of protection
