Will you and your family grant food and safety to a family back in India? 

Your donation will provide a family escaping the city enough food and medicine for the next three months, giving them the strength and support they need to restart their lives again. 

A long walk for survival 

Over 400 million daily workers in India have seen their livelihoods vanish overnight. With no form of income and no savings, they and their families now face a daily fight for survival. 

This unprecedented crisis has led to millions fleeing the big cities of Delhi, Mumbai and many others across India, as they return to the relative safety of their villages.  

Most travel on foot, carrying children not yet old enough to walk and elderly relatives too frail to make such a long journey.
