SUPPORT NEEDY AND POOR RURAL FAMILIES AFFECTED BY COVID-19 IN INDIA
AFOW’s partner organization, the Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR), is reaching out to 12,000 poor, vulnerable families in 620 villages across 7 states of India affected by the current pandemic.
Each family consists of, on average, 5 persons making a total of 60,000 persons who will benefit from your assistance. WOTR will provide each family with a package consisting of food items, personal hygiene items and medicines which will be sufficient for 15 days.
The cost of each such package is US$ 18 which will support a family of 5 persons for 15 days (per day cost is $ 1.20 per family or $0.24 per person).
The entire amount would go directly to the people – WOTR will contribute the personnel and administration costs.
Any assistance you can provide would be most welcome and gratefully acknowledged.
