Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of India.
A bi-monthly news bulletin exploring development, global justice and the work of CWS. Past issues can be read here
In the last few days we have received urgent requests from our partners in India. They are deeply worried about what is happening with the second wave of Covid-19. They ask for our prayers and support.
This month’s CWS Update focuses on the urgent situation they face. With the rapid increase in the number of infections and Covid related deaths they are anticipating increasing hunger as the country tightens the movement of people and further restricts their ability to collect or purchase food. Our partners want to do everything they can to help people protect themselves from infection.
Today we have relaunched our Coronavirus Appeal for India in response to the current situation. Our partners are asking for funds for protective equipment, hygiene supplies, food rations, supporting families to access relief through welfare boards, and to advocate for the protection of Dalit and Tribal families.
Our partners are sending regular updates on the worsening situation.
