Covid-19 CSR Appeal By Oxfam India

Covid-19 CSR Appeal By Oxfam India

Nearly 600 people in India are diagnosed with COVID19; precious lives have been lost and the casualties will go up. As India goes under total lockdown to tackle Coronavirus, 90% of Indian workforce working in the informal sector face an uncertain future without wages or reassurance of wages.

It’s daily wages that puts food on their table; buys them their medicines and basic essential items. They can neither afford sanitisers, masks or gloves nor access quality and affordable healthcare if diagnosed positive.

This pandemic will hit them the hardest. We call upon Indian companies to help us reach the most marginalised and ensure no one is discriminated against. The MCA issued a notification stating the spending of CSR funds for COVID19 as eligible CSR activity.

With your support Oxfam India will leverage its expertise in WaSH and food items for the most vulnerable. We’ll provide portable hand washing stations and protective gears/Personal Protection Equipment to service providers, dry ration, spread awareness and advocate with the government to strengthen public healthcare and economic assistance.
