Multiple chapters of AMURT in Inda has been providing regular support to those affected by COVID-19 lockdowns and subsequent loss of livelihoods.
Treating it as a disaster with hygienic precaution and social distancing, volunteers in 15 states have served more than one million people. In the months of April through June 2020 hundred of thousands of hot meals were served regularly and households were given dry ration like rice, pulse, oil, potatoes, soybeans and other essential commodities.
The severe effects of COVID-19 were compounded by large cyclones hitting both the east and west coasts of India. In the disaster affected areas, AMURT and AMURTEL volunteers redoubled their efforts and often provided both hot meals and dry rations as well as tarpaulins for shelter as per need.
