Maharashtra takes steps to protect homeless population during epidemic

January 1, 1970


Protect 10 million most marginalized people from COVID-19

Swasti is actively partnering with grassroot organizations, coalitions of marginalized communities, community institutions, community health workers and champions as first responders; collaboratives like the #COVIDActionCollab, factories and others to reach the last mile on COVID risk assessment, Vaccine demand generation, Social Protection helpdesk & the Meal Box.
In the aftermath of India’s COVID-19 lockdown, specific groups have emerged as particularly vulnerable to the economic and social consequences of this preventive action. One key group among these are the homeless, who are forced to occupy public spaces and utilise shared facilities, face hunger and are subject to reprisals for violating social distancing.
