As the second wave of the pandemic is raging havoc across the country, individuals and the civil societies alike have taken up the responsibility as the first responders to provide any and every kind of relief. The response so far has been a catalytic moment for our country which showcases the strength of our collective humanity and responsibility towards preserving the very essence of ‘civil’ in our society. Individuals and organisations have gone length and breadth to save a precious life in these dire times where death and misery is fighting hard to take over hope. However, the response is yet to reach its resilience as the majority of the beneficiaries of these citizens driven relief efforts exclude those voices who have historically dwelled at the margins; Voices who don't have the privilege of access to the digital, economic or social capital in order to amplify their SOS needs.
We are coming back together to bring out these very voices and your support will be crucial in this mission.
WHO ARE WE?
Sang was founded by Young India Fellows from Ashoka University and students of University of Delhi. Currently Sang members are Clinton Global Initiative Fellows and are constantly working towards different relief and rehabilitation efforts to support communities in Delhi-NCR and across different regions of India. Sang raised over Rs.34,60,000 + in funds and have gotten support of Rs.1,00,000+ through direct donations in kind to support over 3,900+ families with ration, medicines, safe transportation for migrants to return to their homes and professional mental health support to victims of domestic violence during the pandemic with a team of 50+ volunteers and 20+ active partnerships from Godrej, Saajha, Bachpan Bachao Aandolan etc.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Sang along with DHURI: Building Sustainable Livelihoods, an NGO with a mission to bring incremental changes in the livelihoods of the urban poor communities across the country will be providing Covid relief services to 10 basti clusters along with communities in Bhatti Mines and Khyber Pas in Delhi through the following approaches:
- Direct Approach: Your support will be used to fund medicines, food (essential ration), masks, oxygen concentrators, soap and sanitary napkins to families in the aforementioned clusters. We have our volunteers and teams on ground to ensure smooth implementation with proper safety measures in place
- Collaborative Approach: Through this approach, we will be providing oxygen cylinders to the critical patients in the communities. Your support will be used to help our partner organisations and other individual groups and fund procurement of oxygen cylinders. In such cases, the approach is modified, and we go case-by-case in getting the resources to the community in need.
In continuation of one of our campaign last year, #SabkeSang, we are also offering covid and non-covid tele-consultation to families in these clusters along with mental health counselling to those who need it.
