The COVID waves continue to roll, worldwide. These are challenging times for all of us, but especially for poor people in the Global South. The informal sector has barely recovered from the long lockdowns this year and last. The poorest, who can only do day labour jobs, are now worse off than they already were. The COVID waves continue to roll, worldwide.

Voice of Women Project, Covid AidAfter the situation normalised in the summer of 2021, our projects have also started up again. The infection figures have dropped sharply, our partner organisations report that most people have gone through Covid. The children have returned to the dormitories and schools. Many show symptoms of malnutrition and have not grown as well as they should in terms of age. Especially in the countryside and slums, people did not have money for food rich in vitamins and proteins. The children are eating it out, they are not growing properly and in school their gaps are huge. 
Together with Karuna Trust, we continue to support the Covid relief projects of our partner organisations. The discriminated communities in India and Nepal need us now more than ever.

Karuna Deutschland e.V. works in India and Nepal, where millions of people suffer from grinding poverty and oppression, often excluded from the region’s economic boom.

Those who are most affected are known as Dalits, literally meaning “broken people”. They  are placed at the bottom of the hierarchical caste system which is pre-determined by birth. They are forced to do the most degrading and humiliating work, such as cleaning toilet pits of whole villages or clearing away carcasses. Thus they are considered “impure” and therefore “untouchable”.

Dalit children and women are particularly at risk. Women face double discrimination due to their gender and caste, with some being taken out of school at an early age to be sold into marriage. Some are forced into the drudgery of household services thus undermining their freedom and independence. 

We support people to help themselves. Hence we work together with partner organisations in India and Nepal. They are familiar with the local context and are trusted by the people. Our projects empower people to take control of their lives as well as improve their living conditions with regard to education, self determination and healthcare.
