Donate to Rural India - The Neglected Face of the Covid Pandemic

Donate to Rural India – The Neglected Face of the Covid Pandemic

Covid-19 is surging through India, resulting in record-breaking numbers of new cases with medicine and oxygen in tragically short supply, not to speak of the devastation it has reeked on peoples livelihoods. Unfortunately Rural India has been receiving very little attention or support from either the media or government agencies.

Rural India disproportionately hit 

In Purulia district, West Bengal, many tribal people still live below the poverty line. In the remote areas where our local AMURT team works medical infrastructure is extremely weak. This is having a devastating impact during this second wave of covid. Cases and deaths are going unreported. From our surveys it is also clear how underlying conditions are going untreated due to fear, a lack of access to doctors and medicines and due to a lack of resources.

On a daily basis we are seeing people struggle to make ends meet due to the continuous lockdowns. Unemployment is very high. Hunger and malnourishment is common.

The difference you can make

You can ensure that disadvantaged communities, in this neglected rural area, get what they deserve: urgent access to medical care, food, resources and knowledge of how to support themselves with effective home herbal remedies.

AMURT has worked in over 60 villages surrounding Ananda Nagar, Purulia since the 1960’s and has its origins in this area of West Bengal. Our team is ready to increase the scope of our activities and reach more vulnerable people.
