Villages at Risk

In the wake of pandemic COVID-19, thousands of under-privileged families in tribal villages in India are at risk due to severe lack of

   (1) Awareness & education  

   (2) Access to basic food

   (3) Preventive healthcare measures

More over the lockdown has now been extended and the impact on these communities will last well beyond that. Which is why it is important we extend them this support so that they can get through this not only during the lockdown but also the period following that.
