    As India has given the gift of yoga to the world, we hope today can be a reminder of how privileged we are to be able to practice yoga by honoring its birthplace, knowing that millions in India are still suffering from the immense hardships caused by of the COVID crisis.The recovery period is going to be a long and difficult road. But with your help, we can still provide support for the following areas:
1. Preparing for the 3rd wave: making sure people have what they need in advance.
2. Recovery and Relief: continuing efforts such as our helpline, testing, food kits, job creation, etc. 
3. The Livelihood of Women and Girls: this pandemic has set back the clock on women and girls, therefore we need to get our livelihood programs back up and running.Learn more and support India today: www.thedesaifoundation.org/COVID.#internationaldayofyoga #yoga #covid19 #covidinindia #womenshealth #desaifoundation ...
