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.

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!

Dear Partners & Supporters,

As we are heading towards the end of 2020, it’s good to look ahead and think about what the new year may unveil.

But first, let’s take a quick look back. 2020 was quite a year for all of us. We are grateful that we were quickly able to respond to the COVID-19 situation and provide relief aid to over 3000 affected families across Chittoor, Chennai, Mumbai/Thane and Bangalore. We also went ahead with the Mukthi Bike Challenge and even launched the Madras Fuse online portal. The year also brought with it other big challenges but with the boards’ complete support Oasis India is geared for compliance as we enter the new fiscal year.

I would like to start with a huge thank you to all members of the committee of management, sub-committee, and society members – Thank you for all your wonderful contributions towards the growth and success of our mission. We strive to put our communities at the heart of everything we do and we sincerely would like to thank all our sensitive donors, front line staff, the many change agents and volunteers for their trust, support and excellent cooperation with us.

All our staff love what they are doing and our beneficiaries can feel that in every interaction. I wish that we continue to be challenged by our mission – to work in an inclusive, integrated, empowering and comprehensive way so that all people experience wholeness and fullness of life, and guided by our Vision – for community, a place where everyone is included making a contribution and reaching their fullest potential.

I wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful and restful festive season and all the best for the New Year 2021.
