‘ ….. Death and decay everywhere ….. Beyond imagination.’
The current devastating wave of the pandemic is ravaging many of the communities in which we work. The leader of our project partner in India describes the current situation this way, ‘There is death and decay everywhere. Beyond imagination. It’s not just the hospitals that are not able to manage the dying, the crematoriums and burial grounds are not able to handle the dead.’ For the past year our partners have bravely been on the front line providing aid to tens of thousands. Now, during this most deadly wave, efforts are moving to organising vaccinations for the vulnerable, making and supplying masks, sourcing oxygen and helping people produce food in whatever tiny space they can find. Your help is urgently needed. To make a tax-deductible donation please click on the link below.
