Food for the Hungry

Healthcare Access for Anyone in Need

With over 300,000 new cases reported every day and over 2,000 deaths, the second wave of COVID is wreaking even more havoc than the first outbreak last March.

Like we did in the first months of the pandemic, DFN continues to reach into the homes of those who fall through the cracks. We are standing in the gap for food, medicine, and urgent compassionate care because we believe every life is worth fighting for.

Give Covid Relief Now

THE NEED

The second wave of COVID has hit India with a vengeance. This is a not gradual increase. This is a tidal wave of hundreds of thousands new cases every day. Hospitals beds are full. Oxygen supplies are literally running out. Jobs are gone. Children are hungry.

Experts agree, India is facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.

While this time around the pandemic is being felt across all strata of Indian society, the vulnerable will still suffer the most. With the country in another lockdown, jobs are lost. Families are homeless. Slums are cut-off from surrounding communities out of fear rooted in centuries of discrimination and injustice.

DFN is in all these broken places providing food, health, healing, and hope.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

Our team is mobilizing in isolated and forgotten communities to feed the hungry and care for the sick.

Last April, we began distributing food thousands of families every month. We will do so again, partnering with our schools and local governments for distribution.

Our virtual and in-person clinics are open to provide symptomatic relief and compassionate care. Every day our Indian health care workers are putting themselves on the line to serve those suffering from COVID and other health issues.

We will remain in the hard places. Because every life matters.
