Frontline Work


We are undertaking awareness campaign to encourage vaccination once this becomes available, follow health guidelines, and connect people with our front line women workers for emergency support. 

The Women’s Wing of Ekta Parishad are doing their part in providing an immediate relief response to migrant, landless and marginalized communities in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh Bihar, Jarkhand and Orissa. We are also arranging alternative make-shift healthcare and community facilities for those severely affected by the overflooded hospitals.

Covid has begun to spread to small towns and villages in this second wave, and health services are often scarce or overwhelmed with a large number of cases. So many are affected and they need immediate relief.

Large parts of India are facing massive crises dealing with an unparalleled surge of Covid-19 infections, making it difficult for women and families to access health care, oxygen, and vaccines. A large number of people are struggling with basic needs – food, ambulance and transportation, and medicine. 


We have raised $16,500 that will last to May 15, 2021. These funds provide emergency support. We are now raising $16,500 to support from 

May 15-30th.

Every $ counts in this crisis, and will be received with gratitude. We still have time to support many that are not affected. Please donate any amount.
