COVID-19 pandemic has engulfed the entire world. Rapid spread and lack of vaccines has made it difficult to curtail the disease. As a safety measure, the Government of India announced a 5 week long national lockdown with an aim to flatten the curve. This decision was taken out of concern and wellbeing of our society at large.

Amidst the lockdown, people who are affected the most are the daily wage earners or those living in vulnerable conditions who have no safety net to fall back on. Many of them are staring at starvation with rations running out. Though the Government is taking commendable measures to reach out to the vulnerable families, the need is immense. Hence every helping hand needs to be deployed to support these families in this time of crisis.

While housing is at the heart of everything we do, Habitat for Humanity India has been sensitising and raising awareness on the importance of hygiene and sanitation through our WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) program. As the country implements unprecedented measures amidst the global health emergency of COVID-19, we are supporting families and individuals by providing them with family essential kits and hygiene kits.

Through an abundance of caution, Habitat for Humanity India is not deploying our staff on ground but is mounting our response in partnership with state governments, local government administrations or government agencies.
