The AES community and Scrubs Club has fostered a close relationship with the Old Delhi Clinic over the past 2 years with weekly service interactions to provide medical care in Old Delhi. Our initiative expands this relationship to provide relief from the coronavirus crisis in India, building a network of funding and additional volunteers for the Sikh clinic.
WHO WE FUND:
The funds collected will used to purchase materials for the Old Delhi Clinic. The clinic serves and feeds an estimated 9,000 homeless and migrant workers each day. Basic food and sanitary resources will be distributed, including handwashing soap, detergent soap, masks, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. In addition, clothing such as sandals and underwear will be provided to migrants traveling without proper protection.
WHAT WE FUND:
In a nation with great inequality and a high degree of poverty, India’s poorest have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the economic, social, and medical concerns of the coronavirus. Early staggered lockdowns led to unemployment for millions, and the medical concerns of Covid-19 are profound in a city like New Delhi with high population density. More recently, India's second wave has created widespread suffering and death.
