Your support will help many people receive much-needed food and PPE in villages and towns in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
The second wave of Covid-19 was much more challenging and devastating in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana than the situation last year. Lack of oxygen, hospital beds and available treatment has meant many lives have been lost.
In the rural areas there has been very little awareness of the virus and a real lack of medical facilities. Villagers travel long distances to get medical aid only to find nothing available.
Middle aged men in the households have been forced to continue going to work to provide for their families. This has resulted in many being severely affected with Covid-19, and many have lost their lives. This has left widows and children without any means of support and the scale of poverty has increased greatly.
Story of Ruth – Her entire family was affected with the 2nd wave of Covid-19. Due to lack of oxygen, she lost her husband in the month of May. She struggled a lot to pay for her husband’s burial and to take care of her children. Receiving help from LCA has enabled her to get the necessary daily provisions to survive, and she is extremely grateful.
LCA’s partners have been struggling to provide food packets, medical aid, and daily necessities to the poor and needy. The pressure of meeting the people’s needs have been overwhelming, causing tiredness and exhaustion for our projects.
The effect of this pandemic will be felt for quite some time and LCA is looking at ways to continue the necessary support.
