Today, we face a lot of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak all around the world. At Oasis India, we are doing everything we can to protect our beneficiaries and staff in our hubs.

2021 INITIATIVES

We provided humanitarian relief for families living in and around the villages in Moreh, Manipur in the North East (Indo-Myanmar Border). The kit contained dry ration with rice, dal and a blanket. This was provided to 100 needy families who are internally displaced and are greatly affected by Covid-19.

As part of Asian Aid's #BackToSchool initiative, we were able to provide schoolkits for children in our after-school programme from all the hubs in Chennai. 120 children received school kits and 285 women and children recieved blankets as partof the COVID-19 relief work.

In Bangalore, children in the after-school programme received school bags and kits to get ready to go #BackToSchool. Tailoring students were provided dress materials as part of COVID Care Relief to help with receiving extra income in their small business initiatives. Youth received bags as part of the relief and development programme.

2020 INITIATIVES

As we grapple with this pandemic, we have come to realise that the most affected are those from low income families.  As the scale of this crisis has left them in the lurch, we are responding on the ground with aids for the low income families and those working in the informal sector.

Problems that families in the communities face due to COVID-19:

  • Daily wagers/ informal sector workers are without jobs and are in debts.
  • Not enough supplies to sustain for a longer period
  • No protective masks or hand sanitisers
  • No bank accounts to access government aided entitlements
  • 30—40% of slum dwellers across cities where we work do not have ration cards
  • In Chittoor, 80-100 migrants are stranded in a Government relief camp
  • Sustenance after the lockdown poses a threat

In Bangalore

In Mumbai

*Creating awareness and distribution of masks were done in the community by our staff before the Government lockdown in India.

In Chennai

In Punganur

       

Your financial contribution will: 

  • Support the families of construction workers, housemaid, and road side vendors with 3 months food rations.
  • Provide hygiene kits like masks and soap.
  • Provide recharge pack for mobile phones of the migrant individuals
  • Provide medicine for those sick in the slum areas we work in
  • Help in purchasing fabric for producing masks by our project tailoring and self-help group women.

Thank you for making a difference!

Where we work

Dear friends and patrons,As 2022 draws to a close, I would like for us to look back at a year that heralded in new directions for Oasis India: year one of the 5-year strategic plan of new partnerships, a year of social enterprise, and organisational sustainability.While it was certainly challenging in many ways, it also showed how strong our commitment to the vision and mission are as an organisation – be it as board members, supporters, members of senior management, the national leadership team, or project staff.We can take pride in the fact that we resumed the annual Mukthi Bike Challenge this year, launched Oasis India’s 5-year strategic plan for 2022–2027, and started a new integrated community empowerment project in Assam—Oasis Academy Guwahati and Football for Life (FFL). We also initiated potential partnership discussions with PCI-Mizoram for anti-human trafficking and Thrive for Good under food security, etc. These great achievements lays the foundation for our work in the upcoming new year.There were notable life-changing stories of beneficiaries in each of Oasis India’s hubs and the many other challenges we overcame as a team. Successes achieved in a time when we were forced to adapt to very adverse circumstances So, I want to thank all our staff for the hard work and commitment they have shown over the past year. Our combined strength is what makes us flourish as an organisation.Thank you, our supporters, for walking this journey of growth and development hand in hand with us. As you celebrate Christmas with friends and family, I hope you will look back on the year with the same sense of accomplishment and joy that we all feel at Oasis India.I wish you and your family a happy Christmas season and a prosperous 2023! Best regards,Mangneo LhungdimExecutive Director,Oasis India
