Fight Against COVID-19 with ACT Grants
Fight Against COVID-19 with ACT Grants 150 150 uw india

United Way India has partnered with ACT Grants, an “INR 100CR grant created by India’s start-up community to give wings to ideas that could combat COVID-19 with immediate impact.” The 13 million USD fund, that was created by India’s startup community, works to fund projects contributing to the fight against COVID-19, enable grantee companies to develop effective solutions and scale, and develop & deploy solutions endorsed by and in partnership with state & district governments.

As of August 18th, ACT grants have enabled and supported 55 companies and deployed 8.5 million USD. Beginning in March with the first lockdown, ACT has worked in phases based on evolving challenges, beginning with the prevention of disease spread & augmenting capacity, and shifting to supporting recovery, and later to focusing on the reduction of life loss.

The ACT grants have created wide-spanning and integrated solutions to COVID-19, impacting 24 states and reaching over 100 million people to create awareness. Another notable impact of the ACT grants is that by June 2021, ACT grants is likely to be responsible for supporting 25% of all of India’s N95 mask production and distribution. Other efforts include delivering more than 2.5 million testing kits, providing PPE and ventilators, identifying 28 million high-risk individuals, and supporting telecommunications for mental health, among other programs and actions.

United Way Bengaluru has played a vital role in its partnership with ACT grants, in its help in managing the grants and distribution of capital. As described in an article published by Tech Crunch, “there’s even an international component for people outside of India to contribute. ACT Grants has partnered with United Way, a Virginia-based nonprofit that enables people outside of India to make charitable, tax-deductible donations.”

United Way and ACT grants continue to provide funding and are seeking out ideas that are efficient, scale ready, and will have an immediate impact. To learn about some of the projects granted, visit the ACT website page.

Hungry No More | Time to beat the Food Crisis
Hungry No More | Time to beat the Food Crisis 150 150 uw india

The COVID-19 lockdown has brought a serious shortage of essentials across the country. In the aftermath of this lockdown, the weaker sections of our society are clueless about how to get food for their families. The Global Hunger Index 2019 ranks India as suffering from a ‘level of hunger that is serious.’ And now in 2020, several million people, living in deprived urban and rural areas, lack access to adequate food, as well as information about the availability of community kitchens, which has led to food insecurity in India. 

Taking cognizance of this, to combat Hunger and provide food aid to people living in a crisis, United Way India (UWI) started the ‘Hungry No More’ campaign to support people with two meals a day. By adhering to all safety and hygiene measures, the United Way India network has begun its relief service by providing food kits to the marginalized and low-income segment of the society comprising of daily wage workers, migrant laborers, construction site workers, and other needy people.

With the help of local communities across the country, UWI has distributed thousands of food kits and setting up Cloud Community Kitchen for a sustainable future. The Hungry No More campaign is catering to millions of people with food that eventually helps them to regain their strength and fight starvation. Presently, the UWI network is providing food relief in Ahmedabad, Baroda, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Surat, and Vishakhapatnam.

Message from Mr. Gulshan Kumar Sachdev, Chairman, United Way India-

“The Hungry No More is more than just a campaign but a commitment on behalf of the United Way India, based on its solid underlying principle of Social Inclusion, to reach out to one and all to ensure that no one in our community sleeps hungry. In the past couple of months, United Way India network has positively impacted over 3 million people in the country. Sustainable Development is needed now more than ever, and it remains to be investment-led recovery. With sound policies and active global cooperation, we can restore that progress sooner. Join hands with United Way India to support this endeavor and walk along with us to bring smiles and rebuild communities impacted in this moment of crisis.”

For making a strong recovery, United Way India network continues to provide essential services to vulnerable people in the best possible way. As we have started the journey towards recovery mode, here is a message from our global leadership at United Way Worldwide-

United Way is unparalleled in our power to convene partners, providers, and resources to address the needs of communities in crisis. This has never been more important than now. We have been responding to local needs and society’s most pressing problems for more than 130 years. COVID-19 is a new challenge for us, but we’re up for it. United Way was built for this. 

And more from our local leaders…

– Dipanwita Das, Regional Director, United Way Kolkata.

“The United Way India network has been focused on providing immediate relief to the affected communities and will continue to do so in areas that are continuing to struggle with the rising cases.

Hospitals across the country encountered severe challenges; the most significant was testing and caring for patients with known or suspected COVID-19 and protecting staff members. To provide adequate support to the hospitals during this pandemic, United Way India network gear up to combat COVID-19 and started working with 50 hospitals across the country.

In addition, the hospitals faced challenges in maintaining or expanding their capacities to treat COVID-19 patients and ensuring the adequacy of basic supplies. The critical shortages of ventilators, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and test kits in hospitals were not left unnoticed by the United Way India Network.

Feeding the Hungry!
Feeding the Hungry! 150 150 uw india

Millions of Indians who have been without work for weeks are facing hunger as the country battles the coronavirus outbreak. The most vulnerable are daily wage earners, contract workers, and migrant laborers who have been without work and earnings since the country was shut down on 25 March.  

Nearly half of India’s workforce of 467 million is self-employed, 36 percent are casual wage workers, while only 17 percent are regular wage workers. Two-thirds of them work without contracts and more than 90 percent lack any social security or health benefits in the workplace. 

During any crisis, the biggest problem they all face is the availability of food and rations. The coronavirus lockdown has made survival difficult for them. And then, United Way India Network step ahead to fight against COVID-19 and started working on the food interventions during this pandemic. With limited resources, the idea was to provide the most vulnerable with food.

United Way India envisions that no one should go hungry during the COVID-19 pandemic and for this United Way India networks are working relentlessly from the past two months to provide food security during the crisis. We have reached 929,931 individuals, as we have provided food kits to 711,595 individuals and hot packed meals to 218,336 individuals so far. And the fight continues until we reach the unreached population of our country. 

United Way Baroda

We need your support to keep delivering quality food services to the neediest population of our country. Together we can make a difference!

UNITED WAY BENGALURU

The spread of novel coronavirus in India has quickened in the past few days with new cases of coronavirus. The epidemic has expanded its footprints in the country, affecting more than two hundred thousand people, India stands fifth among the nation’s worst hit by COVID-19 pandemic. To fight against COVID-19, United Way Bengaluru exhibited dedication towards immediate response as the team is on the frontlines supporting public health officials and community organizations.

United Way Bengaluru’s response aimed at enabling supplies of grocery kits to feed needy people for 21 days, hygiene kits with masks and soap, PPE kits for the hospital staff, testing kits for the patients, oxygen ventilators to aid the struggling health care system, thermal scanners, floor disinfectants, and nebulizers. The team is also working to spread awareness in the local languages with a special focus on Anganwadi workers, mothers, migrant communities, and old people who are at higher risk.

This pandemic has made a huge impact on the availability and accessibility of food and healthcare services. Since the first phase of lockdown, United Way Bengaluru impacted 761,830 lives by reaching out to people with ration kits and other essential commodities. 192650 triple layer masks, 33000 hygiene kits, 1310 bottles of and sanitizers, 4500 COVID testing kits, 6660 PPE kits have been provided to the health care centers and hospitals so far by United Way Bengaluru.

The team faces many challenges during the relief efforts; one of the major concerns is maintaining social distancing. With the utmost precautions and social distancing in mind, the team continues to help those who would have withered away unless United Way Bengaluru’s team stepped in to pull them out of these dark times.

UNITED WAY HYDERABAD

With India living under a strict lockdown, people are struggling to keep their work afloat. With novel protocols like social distancing and stay home restrictions, E- Volunteering has become the new norm across the CSR space among the corporates. A session plan was chartered by United Way of Hyderabad with time slots and circulated to the corporates who wanted to avail of this opportunity. These sessions were conducted for the Children’s Homes and Orphanages that we work with.

Volunteers spent extensive amounts of time motivating the students to explore creativity and learn new things. Sessions were conducted on a wide range of topics including Scholarships, Mentorship, Career Counselling, English Language skills, Life Skills, Health, Zumba, Entertainment, Quizzes, and many competitions.

With the support of more than five corporates until now, Qualcomm, Bank of America, State Street, etc. we have impacted 1733 beneficiaries and clocking 35.05 hrs of online sessions with a total of 1962.15 beneficiary hours. Furthermore, in partnership with Janyaa Foundation supported POLYCET training and Online sessions for Class 10 S.S.C students. An aggregate of 852 students from 57 schools have enrolled for these sessions and a total of 52.2 hours has been spent on coaching so far.

“In the current situation, it is vital to stay digitally connected – connected to each other, our communities. Thanks to United Way Hyderabad for doing the commendable job through their E-volunteering program, it is surely helping us to bridge the gap between schools and home”, says Mr. Gulshan Kumar Sachdev, Chairman of United Way India.

UNITED WAY CHENNAI

As the number of cases in India continues to grow, people are encouraging social distancing to slow the rate of transmission. The goal of this practice is to flatten the curve of a new infection, but we cannot avoid a surge of demand on the health care system. As the effects of physical distancing may take weeks to appear, here at United Way India we aim to provide immediate care and support in the situation of calamities.

In a country of 1.3 billion people, India has only 40,000+ ventilators. Health ministries all over the world face the same dreadful equation of ventilator shortage as the pandemic rages on. With the rising number of COVID-19 patients, United Way Chennai decided to help reduce the acute shortage by raising funds to the tune of INR 1.3 Cr. (USD 175000), through which UWChennai is supporting the government to mitigate the ventilator shortage for COVID-19 patients in Chennai. These funds were used not only to procure ventilators but also other necessary medical equipment like patient monitors, PPE kits for hospitals in Chennai. The team also involved young students in schools & colleges to help spread awareness and raise funds for the cause. Furthermore, UWChennai provided financial relief to 24 differently-abled self-employed entrepreneurs.

As a result, UWChennai purchased and installed 8 ventilators, 2000+PPE kits, and provided 9 patient monitors to the hospitals of Chennai.

Since disability is one of the primary focus areas, last year, UWChennai empowered 24 differently-abled individuals to become entrepreneurs by setting up bunk shops for them. However, due to the lockdown, their shops are closed and therefore, the only source of income has been shut down. With the help of individual donations, UWChennai provided much-needed financial relief to these individuals by giving them 1 month’s pay equivalent to INR 7000 (approx. USD 100). The team is now expanding the campaign to help street vendors, artisans, and other daily wage laborers who have lost their livelihoods due to the lockdown.

The COVID-19 pandemic is no less than one, wreaking havoc on the health of the individual and livelihood of the poor. Fortunately, meeting this challenge is not impossible, only difficult. In this case, considering the restricted movement on-ground, UWChennai has directed its efforts towards fundraising which will eventually mitigate the long-term effects of the pandemic & the subsequent lockdown.

UNITED WAY DELHI

On 22nd March 2020, as the country entered its first phase of Lockdown, motivated by the motto that United Way envisions i.e. United We Fight, United We Win, the United Way Delhi team exhibited dedication towards emergency response right from the very onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With a task force team on the backend, a brave UWD team braced to work on the ground.

The on-ground team made sure that all mandated emergency and quarantine protocols are being followed at every step. They even decided to stay insulated from their families at a dedicated apartment with enthusiasm towards the advancement of the common good. United Way Delhi’s response aimed at enabling supplies to hospitals including PPE kits, Gloves, Sanitizers, Masks, Testing kits, etc to aid the ongoing efforts of the state medical departments towards fighting the deadly Coronavirus. The Delhi team provided uninterrupted and relentless support to the medical professionals, para-medical staff, nurses, and other health care workers so that they continue to perform their duties with necessary protective gear and adequate medical equipment.

43000 triple layer masks, 26000 gloves, 10350 N-95(Euro Grade masks), 3600 bottles of hand sanitizers, 500 liters of hand wash liquid, 950 liters of floor disinfectants, 2732 PPE kits and 139 states of art curative medical equipment have been provided to the health care centers and hospitals so far by United Way Delhi.

The United Way Delhi team has faced a plethora of challenges during these interventions like ensuring authentic and genuine vendors and products, managing infection risks to the ground team, limited logistical support due to lockdown posed challenges with the delivery of supplies in certain areas and restricted time-bound movement created some level of complication with scheduling and planning.

Dr. Shuchin Bajaj of Ujala Cygnus Hospital in Delhi has expressed immense gratitude towards the entire United Way Delhi team for timely replenishment and reinforcement of the rapidly depleting protective gear, testing kits, etc, hand sanitizers, floor disinfectants, etc. He took to social media saying, “The power of Friendship continues. We have been struggling for good quality personal protective equipment including masks and it has created a big hurdle in our path of providing high-quality healthcare services to the most disadvantaged of communities. Our friends though are determined to get us over this obstacle in any way possible. Sachin Golwalkarsaw our struggles and made it his mission to get us PPE kits, masks, face shields and goodies we could not have imagined. What’s more he drove all the way and delivered everything himself. Thank you so much United Way Delhi, Sachin, Pallavika, Daud, and your entire team for this noble gesture. We can’t thank you enough. Forever indebted to you.”

UNITED WAY MUMBAI

The number of coronavirus cases in India rose to 31,490 on April 29, 2020. With 9,318 Covid-19 cases, Maharashtra has registered the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country. To fight back in these unprecedented times, and to reach the unreached population across the Mumbai metropolitan region, United Way Mumbai with all the collective efforts are scaling up on a war footing to aid & protect those at the front lines while supporting & providing services to the unserved population.

The team has been working with families that have lost income because of the lockdown and providing ration and essentials kits to them. Alongside providing the PPE kits to hospitals, the team stepped further for the safety of the medical workers. The United Way Mumbai team has two BAMS doctors (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) in their staff. They are certified by the government of Maharashtra as practicing doctors. With the support of these two medical professionals, the training sessions on safety measures are conducted in the hospitals of Mumbai.

109200 three-ply-masks, 9825 N-95 masks, 5500 face shields, 9828 PPE Kits, 11 COVID 19 testing kits, installed 4 handwashing stations, and 3300 Hand Wash Liquid soap were distributed. The team is currently working with 22 hospitals across the country. Apart from these, United Way Mumbai is also in the process of sourcing 19 ventilators that will be installed in different hospitals.

The team faces many challenges during the intervention like to set up a strict quality check process to source PPE kits, the staggering deliveries, and less quantity in which they get the supplies from the manufacturers. And they have lost the last-mile connectivity with the community people as the team is now dependent on partner NGOs to distribute the ration and essential kits due to limited accessibility.

To lower the risk of exposing family members to get infected by the coronavirus, the United Way team is staying in a hotel since April first week. The dedication and enthusiasm to fight back this virus are now helping the team to work more efficiently.

UNITED WAY BARODA

United Way Baroda staff in collaboration with Gujarat Police distributing hot pack meals to the indigent communities from April 1, 2020 during COVID-19 lockdown across the country.

United Way Baroda in collaboration with Gujarat civic authorities and officials under police supervision, has started distributing hot pack meals daily to the most vulnerable and socio-economically weaker sections from April 1 till the lockdown period, considering utmost safety and hygienic protocols laid down by international medical regulatory bodies during service delivery.

“We at Indian ELF(s) have been thinking of doing our bit to help fight COVID-19 so we collaborated with an international fan base and UNICEF South Africa to help United Way India in this pandemic. We decided to donate under Super Junior’s name because the group itself has been brand ambassadors for various goodwill and humanitarian issues. They also came forward to donate as a group and as individual members to help fight COVID-19, which really inspired us to donate for the front liners in our own country”.

Super Junior (SuJu) is one of the most respected groups of the second generation of K-pop. Ever since their debut in 2005, they have brought so much originality to the music industry as a whole. All in all, Super Junior has led 15 years of incredible achievements as they have won countless awards and achieved multiple records.

With millions of fans around the globe, it’s no surprise that they’re called the legendary boy group not because of the things they have achieved, but because of how they continuously present themselves as group’s inspiration. 

We are thankful to Super Juniors for stepping up in this difficult time and offering your generous support to United Way India. You have shared the gift of hope to so many people in need. Together, WE can make a change. And United Way India with your support will be at the forefront in re-thinking how we provide all people with the health, education, and economic opportunities they need and deserve.

United Way India is also thankful to the Super Junior’s fandom, which is called Everlasting Friends aka E.L.F. The Indian fan base started in 2010 to bring together all the group’s Indian fans, to fangirl/fanboy over their favourite group, and to represent the Indian part of the fandom.

We can together fight with this pandemic. Let’s stay #UnitedAgainstCOVID19.

Impacting Lives- COVID-19 Response
Impacting Lives- COVID-19 Response 150 150 uw india

Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world.

As the coronavirus cases in India climb, imposing a lockdown on 1.3 billion people was always going to be challenging. So far, the country has had a reported 23,239 active cases and 725 deaths.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the way we perceive our world and our everyday lives. India is a country with extreme poverty in many areas; and many of its cities, such as Mumbai and Kolkata, are extraordinarily dense. We do have enough food to feed its entire population, just from a public stock. But it’s not clear that the food is getting to those places, or that it can in such a short period. In India, even if the intentions are good, the execution can be challenging, because there are a million blocks along the way. By taking up this challenge, to provide food services to the unreached population of the country, United Way Network is getting ahead of coronavirus by saving lives and livelihoods in India.

Healthcare professionals have been confronted with several pressing challenges since the onset of an outbreak. Not all hospitals had been equipped with sufficiently protective resources. Improved personal protection and hygiene management at community levels were then officially endorsed to protect the population from infections. United Way India believes that the development of technologies is urgently needed to fight against COVID-19.

United Way India’s impact across Healthcare

United Way Mumbai

Countries that are experiencing COVID-19 have adopted different approaches to slow the spread of the virus. In India, actions would need to be implemented locally, with different approaches. United Way India cooperates in dynamically developing and helping execute healthcare-expansion efforts with the help of our local chapters in Bengaluru, Baroda, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai.

We may currently need to keep our physical distance, but that doesn’t mean we can’t facilitate togetherness. Those human connections are what will get us through this crisis.
