Helping Rural Women to Fight COVID 19

Tax benefits
‘My husband was a brick worker but he lost his job due to the pandemic. I am seven months pregnant for the first time. We had completely run out of food to cook. We are thankful to the organization for providing us the dry ration kits. It means a lot to us in such a situation.  - Chhaya Shikari, Pedra Village, Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh.’

The COVID-19 impact has affected the marginalized communities in myriad ways. This is more than just a health crisis. With the majority who work as daily laborers, the lockdown is leading to a hunger crisis, with no food to feed families. Especially For households run by women with no social support system, the economic hardship of this pandemic is even more immeasurable.

The movement restrictions are economically devastating for women and adolescent girls who live in marginalized communities and are sole supporters of their families. The loss of livelihoods and lack of food, health care, and other basic needs have put them in distress.

Milaan with its grassroots leadership network of 12 community partners, 50+ women field workers, 350+ girl leaders spread across vast rural spaces of Uttar Pradesh is working to provide immediate relief to 5000 families in some of the most backward and ignored communities.

So far 194 families in 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh have been supported with immediate relief through dry ration kits and direct cash transfers under Milaan’s ‘COVID19 Emergency Support Program’ to reach the last mile.

Distribution of Ration Kits
 - with the help of our community partners, We are locally procuring food essential and soaps for distribution to families especially the ones with pregnant women. A Ration kit costs INR 1500 / USD $20 to support a family of 5 for 15 days.  

Direct Cash Transfers - Families in low-income communities especially those with sole women earners are financially supported through Direct Cash Transfers to meet the essential needs of ration and medicine.

Every Donation is critical towards ensuring the basic essential needs of these families are met to survive.
