Dear Sambhali friends all over the world,

We are beyond grateful for the enormous support in the last few weeks. By now, we have reached 246 families in the first round of delivering ration kits. We are now working on the second round.

Our work here is not finished and we still need more support to continue this important mission. One family of 4-5 people is supported by a ration of 90 rupees a day.

Your help means the world to us and all families around. It has made a tremendous difference in the lives of those people. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

To all our Dear Supporters 
For over 2 weeks now we have been turning all our efforts into feeding the 240 families in the Viramdeogarh and Dechu Tehsil districts 110km west of Jodhpur, near to where Sambhali has had a primary education centre since 2007 in Setrawa. We have been in discussions with the local village leaders and they have asked us to provide food and essential supplies for a minimum of one month, because the villagers have all lost their income due to the lockdown imposed on 24 January and due to end on 14 April - which looks extremely likely that this will be extended. Most of these villagers were working in the local stone quarries which have temporarily closed down leaving these families with no income.
No-one knows how this pandemic is going to last, nor the lockdown, but it is envisaged that we are looking at a 3-month period minimum before the quarries and other day to day work re-starts. 
All families are being delivered groceries including flour, rice, oil, pulses, tea, sugar, spices, jaggery and soap. We have employed 4 local fieldworkers who have been house to house to get a survey of everyone, their names and their phone numbers so they can be connected on a local Whatsapp Group, where Sambhali will be able to provide advice on hygiene, prevention and social distancing practices in their local language as well as a wealth of other information that has been verified and not fake.
Sambhali has also been asked by the government to provide food and supplies to 20 migrants who are held in the Abhaygarh Isolation camp close to Setrawa who are going to be held in isolation for a few weeks. 
This has been a massive effort and we are thankful to the local authorities, 15 local and international volunteers we have with us at present, as well as my own relatives, Pooja Sharma and participants of the Setrawa Empowerment Center for stitching 300 reusable masks as requested by the government for the migrant isolation camp and the local fieldworkers all working together to help feed these families.
We are very grateful to each and every one of you who has donated to help these vulnerable people living in very poor circumstances, with no electricity, fetching water from a well and existing on some basic supplies. We still need help to purchase food that will be supplied every 10-15 days to each of the 240 families and 20 migrants.
