VIEWS COVID-19 response
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the Indian as well global community at large. The poor in the state of Odisha (India) have weak access to the right information, healthcare and are mainly engaged in the labour and unorganized sector, are expected to bear a disproportionate brunt of the economic fallout of this unprecedented health emergency.
Over those last two weeks and lockdown time, the people in Urban Slums of Bhubaneswar and Rural areas of Odisha who don’t have access to basic services including food,
safe water and the inability to take the most basic of precautions against COVID-19. I know a family in Jali Munda Slum of Bhubaneswar, India who has been working as a daily wage labourer and feed their Four kids and now they are not allowing outside to work and struggling to feed their children’s. The reason VIEWS India exists, and we are dedicating our life to Social work, our thoughts also turned to support hundreds of poor people who now have access to food, safe water and sanitation because of your support.
We want to do our best to make sure that communities with the greatest needs are not hit the hardest. VIEWS India COVID 19.
