Our Contribution in the COVID Fight

When the pandemic struck India in 2020 and the nation went into a strict lockdown, the Hand in Hand India team stepped up to support vulnerable communities in alignment with its mission. We not only diversified our own projects to maximise impact but also went beyond to provide emergency relief support.

In the devastating second wave resulting in substantial human loss and significant humanitarian concerns with an urgent need for supporting the people in many fronts, we are seeking the support to join us in the fight against this deadly virus.

Learning Never Stops

Learning Never Stops

HiH India through its remote Satellite Teaching Centres (STC) conducted classes for the children who are unable to attend the e-learning platforms. When the children could not access schools, we brought the schools closer to them. The initiative supported the ‘COVID Dropouts’ i.e. students who were unable to attend online classes as they have no access to schooling, internet, or electricity.

Supporting the Sanitation and Frontline Workers, and the Local Bodies

Supporting the Sanitation and Frontline Workers, and the Local Bodies

We reached out to support the Green Friends (sanitary) and under privileged people by providing ration kits, PPEs and health care, and the local government bodies with portable sanitizer power sprayers and sanitizer kits and hands free sanitizer dispensers.

The Devastating Second Wave

India is grappling with a devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Hospitals are backlogged and health professionals are overloaded. There is a high demand with an extremely low supply. People desperately on the lookout for oxygen cylinders or hospital beds to save the life of a loved one, burning pyres in the crematorium that now carry a houseful sign on their doors, and people waiting with oxygen masks outside hospitals in hope of finding at least one available bed. This is the scenario that is being portrayed on all international and national platforms.

Hence, we are appealing for support in combating this second wave that is ravaging India:
