The second wave of COVID has hit India with a vengeance. This is a not gradual increase. This is a tidal wave of hundreds of thousands new cases every day. Hospitals beds are full. Oxygen supplies are literally running out. Jobs are gone. Children are hungry.
Experts agree, India is facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.
While this time around the pandemic is being felt across all strata of Indian society, the vulnerable will still suffer the most. With the country in another lockdown, jobs are lost. Families are homeless. Slums are cut-off from surrounding communities out of fear rooted in centuries of discrimination and injustice.
DFN is in all these broken places providing food, health, healing, and hope.
