United Way Mumbai has been actively responding to the pandemic since
its onset in India. A snapshot of our Covid-19 response efforts in 2020 is
In light of the current situation and impending crisis, we request your support once again for our frontline workers and marginalised communities. The interventions listed below can be implemented in urban and rural communities across the country
FACILITATE VACCINATIONS FOR LOW INCOME
We also aim to facilitate vaccine registrations in low-income communities in consultation with district and public health officials. Our teams will assist individuals in registering for the vaccine and provide transport to the vaccine centre for remote areas. The team will also follow up with them to ensure the second dose of vaccine is taken as per schedule.
Through this support, we were able to distribute protective hygiene & sanitation equipment in hospitals, train frontline healthcare workers and distribute family essentials and freshly cooked meals to daily wage workers and their families. The suffering in our communities is immense and our resources limited but we are committed to whatever it takes, to help as many people as we can, to endure this crisis.
06.05.2020: Our team is reaching out to as many hospitals as possible to cater to the increased demand for protective gears and ration kits to the families in need.
271 Monthly ration & essentials kits were delivered today to 84 families in Wagholi and 187 families in Kharadi, Pune, all of whom were construction labourers. This will suffice for 1300+ individual members for a month.
These kits can serve a family of 4-5 members for a month.
We have partnered with Pratham Education Foundation (Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative) for distribution to the most underprivileged families. Families are being identified and reached through various local community-based organizations
