Fight Against COVID-19

The global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is severely affecting healthcare systems and economic activity. Our country is under lockdown to slow the spread of the disease and prevent community transmission.
Designated hospitals are getting overloaded by patients & relatives while facing an extreme shortage of protective equipment. The lockdown is also causing severe economic difficulty, especially for daily wage-earner families

Our teams are at the frontlines supporting public health officials and community organisations. Your donations will go towards fighting the spread of the virus, keeping health workers safe and support community resilience. 

For more detailed information regarding our COVID-19 interventions, please write to Sanaa Shaikh at sanaa@unitedwaymumbai.org.

MID TERM AND LONG TERM REQUIREMENTS

The long term implications of this pandemic have the potential to cripple affected communities. Once the need for social distancing subsides, we foresee a need for midterm and long term interventions to rehabilitate communities and build resilience to any further incidences.

Expected interventions include:
  • Upgradation of sanitation and hygiene facilities in communities such as low-income schools, Anganwadis, community spaces, hospitals, etc.
  • Health education, screening and awareness generation on WASH behaviours
  • Restoring livelihoods of daily wage earners and marginalized communities
  • Mental health support
  • Identification and skilling of community health volunteers
  • Upgradation of health facilities and infrastructure in government hospitals and public health centres.
  • Support of frontline workers including doctors, nurses, public health workers, sanitation workers, police personnel, etc.
  • Nutrition and education support for children to compensate for losses during periods of isolation or school closure.
  • Upgradation and installation of sanitation and hygiene facilities at public areas with high footfall like Railway stations and Bus stations along with awareness generation.
  • Measures to improve hygiene awareness and practices in high-density habitation like in urban slums
