CARE India is mounting a comprehensive response and collaborating with development and corporate partners in fighting COVID-19 health crisis. Some of our key initiatives include helping frontline workers stay safe with PPE, distributing dry rations to feed the needy, raising awareness in our programme areas, contact tracing, providing technical support, inputs of the equipment required and others.

A lot of our existing partners and new partners have stepped forward to join the fight against COVID – 19.

Our teams are already working day-to-day where health systems are weak and as COVID-19 spreads, we want to be sure that the needs of the vulnerable communities we work with are met as this crisis unfolds.
