COVID-19 Emergency Relief

#purecovidrelief

The COVID-19 outbreak is a human tragedy impacting people from all walks of life across the globe. The lockdowns and stay at home orders have left many people living on daily wages without food and shelter. The economic impact on those from the vulnerable segments is terrifyingly tremendous.

PURE is working diligently in ensuring food security for orphans, the elderly, migrant families, daily wagers and the differently-abled in India. PURE is also supporting Home Front, Hunger First and public schools in the USA in this time of need in ensuring disadvantaged students have food and school supplies they need.

Together We Can, We Did, We Will

Collaborations help maximize the reach and accelerate the rate at which help is delivered. Nalgonda.org, Swaravedika, Abhisthi Group, Rotary Club of Hyderabad,  Dr Bajaj’s New Delhi group, DonateKart and a few other partners added great value to our relief efforts across India.

Delivery and distribution partners in towns and cities include our PURE Gurus, small town youth clubs, and those who run self-help groups.
