Throughout the pandemic, we have been finding innovative ways to continue to support carers and their families during these challenging times. Please take a look at our updates below that explain how we responded to the COVID-19 situation alongside practical guidance that we have published over the past two years.
Our COVID 19 India Emergency Appeal raised an incredible £15,097 to help those most vulnerable to the disease and least able to access support. People with disabilities, those living with long term health conditions and their carers are often isolated and disadvantaged. Our emergency appeal enabled our partners on the ground to provide immediate and targeted emergency support to carers and their families.
Due to the generosity of our supporters we were able to provide emergency food relief, medicines and transport to vaccination centres for people with disabilities and long term health conditions and their family carers in India during the COVID19 crisis. Many of these families live in rural and remote areas, which were not being reached by other emergency aid efforts.
