India in Crisis: Support the Grassroots Response

*Our India Crisis fundraising campaign has ended. Thanks to all that contributed to the grassroots response.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, grassroots organizations in India have stepped in to fill the gaps and provide aid to the country’s most vulnerable communities. Now, as a deadly second wave ravages health care and other support systems, these activists on the front lines need our support more than ever.

To date, community-led groups supported by the Fund have helped more than 1 million people across 19 states secure the food, shelter, protective supplies, and aid they need to survive, while also continuing to tackle the inequalities that left communities vulnerable in the first place:
