Covid-19 is spreading rapidly in India. Our employees continue to distribute relief supplies. Each of our business areas is affected. An update.
UPPAHAR helps the needy living below the subsistence level during the Corona crisis (lockdown in India). We distribute food to over 8,500 people.
May 2020: The Indian population is already in the third phase of the curfew (= lockdown), which is to remain in force until May 17. Here and there, minimal easements of the measures were created, but in total, the 1.3 billion Indians have been living under strict curfew for 8 weeks in a row.
April 30, 2020: The lockdown has been extended until 3 May (with allowance of basic supply). It proved to be very difficult to get enough food for distribution. Therefore we quickly switched to giving only the raw food, always for 4 weeks.
April 05, 2020: UPPAHAR starts distributing basic food to stranded migrant workers and the poorest who are most affected by the Corona crisis.
