Latest issue: We are there for you
When the lockdown started in Tamil Nadu, India, Mrs Velankanni and her family had little food. Unable to work as day labourers or gather in their traditional forest, she and her husband were afraid their family would soon starve. The government gave only some families the rations they were all entitled to under the lockdown. Dalit and Tribal people were the most vulnerable to hunger, but received little support.
The women’s sangam or association did what they could and asked the Women Development Resource Centre for help. Our partners are changing key to meet the most urgent needs of the people they work with so they do not go hungry.
