In our battle against the deadly COVID-19, C3 has been standing up for the poor, the marginalized, the vulnerable members of our society and for health workers, frontline workers, field officials, service providers who are putting their lives at risk, every day. But the fight isn’t over. Coronavirus has led to a nationwide lockdown, creating fear and havoc among our lives, but many have been affected more adversely than others. This is an appeal to join hands in our battle against #Covid19, to help us keep providing support to those who need it the most. The road to recovery is long, and your valuable contribution will help immensely.

In Bihar, the COVID-19 crisis is immense – with the return of migrants increasing the pressure on an already burdened state administration. Therefore, C3 conducted an assessment to gather information on the impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown on incomes and coping mechanisms in communities, the reach of relief work and entitlements announced by governments, the status of health and essential service delivery and the knowledge levels of leaders and elected members. This would help us create intervention strategies to support communities to cope better with the pandemic.
