Ya_All has been crowdfunding and supporting more than 2000+ children in shelters, adolescents, youths, stranded students, migrants, Transgender, Daily wage workers, and People living with HIV and Disability in Manipur from last 60 days /2 months through an initiative called "KHUDOL INITIATIVE".

We also raised the issues of exclusion of a separate space for Transgender persons in Quarantine centers regarding COVID-19 and helped create the first model of Inclusive quarantine center in Imphal at DM College of Teacher Education with separate toilet facilities for Transgender persons in Manipur along with Thangmeiband United Club and Imphal West District administration. Manipur now has a separate Quarantine Centre of Transgender persons run by the Social Welfare Department and supported by the Government of Manipur.

Manipur has declared 5th phase of lockdown till 30th June and many LGBTI individuals who earn their livelihoods by running beauty parlors/salons, opening small shops/businesses, LGBTI people living with HIV, Mental Illness and other daily wages are facing a renewed crisis due to loss of jobs, income sources, access to medicines and therapy. It has also been reported globally that the lockdown has increased violence on the queer community as everyone has been instructed to stay at home with the government promoting #StayAtHome restrictions. For many individuals, their own homes have become an unsafe space now without any support.

We are very much indebted and thankful to our 6 supporters who raised 100350 INR till now for us. 

Community spread has started in Manipur and the panic has manifolded with Covid-19 claiming 4 lives till today. The number of positive cases have increased exponentially with hospital staffs, police personals, MLA and administrators getting infected,

The state is under complete lockdown excepting few activities, and forcing small business owned by young and elder LGBTI individuals to shut down. People are now struggling between health concerns and livelihood options.

While we are continuing providing free tele-counselling and online psycho-social support presently along with emergency needs ,we are extending our fund raiser to support our community during the extended lockdown.

Than you.
