The COVID-19 pandemic has affected millions of people around the globe, especially the poor. It has shattered their lives, causing many to nearly lose hope. .

Aadhya* from India was married at fourteen years old. Her husband works fifteen days each month and spends the rest of the month drinking and gambling, leaving his family to fend for themselves.

Aadhya tries to find work as a maid. But her search for work is often unsuccessful since many rich homeowners believe that maids who live in dingy places are more likely to spread disease. Aadhya said, “I’m willing to sleep hungry, but what about my children? My heart aches when they cry for food and are forced to sleep on an empty stomach. My husband doesn’t support me financially but instead comes home drunk.”

When Aadhya received a month’s supply of food, she could hardly contain her joy as she profusely thanked the people who sent it. “Not many people heed the stories of the poor,” Aadhya said.
