We are heartbroken by the current situation in India and are proud of the work we have been able to do on the ground thus far. Thank you for your generous support during this time. We are committed to serving the over 1,100 rural communities we serve in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and have recently expanded our COVID support to Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. We are focused on both the current immediate need, preparing for a possible third wave, and on the long-term relief efforts that will be needed. Please join us in these critical efforts to support India in this time of need.
