My Campaigns


UWM's interventions to fight COVID-19 are based on best practices of other affected communities & include emergency response measures and long term efforts to build resilience and rehabilitate affected communities.

My Appeal

COVID-19 has affected all of us. The obvious impacts already have the healthcare system of India buckling under the pressure of keeping up with the burgeoning numbers of cases, outbreaks of community transmission, and low supplies of essential medical gears. With the nationwide lockdown since 25th March 2020, the long term consequences of the pandemic are proving to be much more enduring than the pandemic itself. The worst-hit are the daily wage workers of India. The unorganised sector consists of 94% of India's labour force. With no jobs, no money in hand, no transport and minimal relief, thousands of workers are emigrating to their villages by walking for days at an end. And with the lockdown bringing the economy to a near standstill, the hope of returning to their jobs once the lockdown ends looks bleak. I am raising funds for United Way Mumbai's short, mid and long term COVID relief initiatives. You can read about them in the section below. I appeal for your support in enabling the most affected to come out of this crisis much stronger.

Project Details

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

About Me

My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green,
But I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it's silver when it's wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.
