COVID-19 cases in India continue to skyrocket and requests for help keep coming from contacts working in various parts of the country. Delhi, the capital city, is under lockdown. Other locations throughout the country also face stringent restrictions.

India, the second-most populous country in the world, is home to more than 1.4 billion people. Cities are packed with millions of people living in close quarters. As the COVID crisis escalates, impoverished people face an increasing need of food, hygiene items, and other basic necessities.

Throngs of Indians are without work. Severe hunger is a grave reality. “We don’t know how long the lockdown will be,” wrote one of our contacts. “We saw after the previous lockdown was over how difficult it was for common laborers and maids to return to work as those who employ them are fearful to allow them in their homes.”
