Covid-19 has brought unprecedented challenges to the entire world. India is following a lockdown to ensure people practise social distancing to curb the spread of the virus.

Seva Mandir is responding to this situation and we are implementing robust measures to protect our staff and the people and communities we work with. Seva Mandir has worked with communities for over 50 years to transform and improve their lives - and we continue to do so.

As with all crises, those living in poverty are disproportionately affected. Access to vital supplies such as food and sanitation materials is becoming increasingly difficult.

To relieve the situation, Seva Mandir is assisting the government in delivering food to families most in need. We are also delivering food, sanitation, and agricultural storage kits to those in the most remote locations.

 

But we can only do so with your help.

 

Your support can ensure those who live in poverty have the food and hygiene materials they need to feed their families and survive this crisis.


Our Relief Efforts

We are providing families in rural, tribal and urban slum communities with the vital relief packs to ensure they can survive this crisis.

Sanitation kits containing soap and detergent are being distributed. Each kits is enough for a family of 5 and can last 2 weeks.

Food kits are being containing items locallly used are being distributed to the neediest families in hard-to-reach regions of our work area. This is being conducted alongside the government's own relief efforts. Each food kits is enough to last a family of 5 for 2 weeks.

Agricultural storage kits are also being distributed. These kits give farmers the ability to store greater quantities of grain, giving them better food security.

The kits are being distributed by our field team. We are providing each distributor with their own personal protective equipment, which includes masks, hair nets, and gloves. They are trained and are given advisories to ensure they are safe and follow social distancing during their work.
