of the COVID-19 crisis.

The Grant Facility for Humane Action was set up under the aegis of the Aavishkaar Foundation on March 24, 2020, just days after a strict lockdown was announced in India. The Facility’s objectives were -

Support front line workers in remote parts of the country.

Within the first three months of its inception, the Aavishkaar Foundation aggregated a sum of INR 2.25 crores (~USD 2,92,000) to respond to the COVID-19 crisis – mainly through providing meals to the poorest and migrant populations and providing protective equipment to frontline health care workers in India.

The delivery of the aid was managed through collaboration with carefully selected grassroots non-profit organizations.

Aavishkaar Foundation continues to engage with communities to keep a pulse of the challenges on the ground, and we truly believe that our ability to rapidly identify the right grassroots partners allows us to respond at scale.
