India, Gasping for Breath!
As an executive director of Dalit Solidarity, I am here with you in a time as India is literally gasping for breath. As I carry the pain and grief beyond any expression, I seek your prayers and solidarity to bring hope and healing to millions who are in total shock and trauma. As India was totally unprepared for this second wave of tsunami, corona has stunned everyone beyond human comprehension. Life has come to standstill and the very system that can keep us alive got crashed due to the overwhelming hospitalizations and deaths. I am breathless and short of words to describe the magnitude of destruction and devastation within a span of a few weeks. Perhaps, this disaster is the crisis of our recent memory India has ever witnessed.
In a time like this, India is under enormous stress and pressure, scrambling for answers as our resources and infrastructures are very limited. As we lack enough hospital beds, oxygen, viral drugs and human resources, the government is doing the best whatever they can. The world communities have come to our rescue with their huge generosity and manpower to curb the corona spike and save as many lives. While the richest flee from the country to escape, the affluent find some ways to manage, the poor and marginalized are at the dead end. United together, we will find light at the end of the tunnel.
Thanks to the global community especially to the US and European Union for their huge support during this time of crisis. The shipment of life saving drugs, equipment and human resources have brought much relief and comfort in midst of despair, grief and loss.
As the lock down is enforced to control further spread, many will be out of jobs and eventually will be deprived of their daily bread. Dalit Solidarity would like to play a vital role like last year in bringing some hope in providing food, medicine and PPE kits and to keep them alive. Please support our relief efforts through your generosity and compassion. All your donations are tax-deductible by the IRS. We can prevent further damage. Please be a ray of hope and be at the service of our fellow humans. I pray that God will have mercy on us and bring healing from this catastrophe.
You can donate online or make a check payable to Dalit Solidarity and mail to Dalit Solidarity, P.O. Box 178995, San Diego, CA 92177. Together we can succeed our humanity. Please contact me if you need further assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 708-612-4248
Dalit Lives Matter! Make Your Impact
Our vision of an Indian society where everyone must enjoy equal rights and all must be treated with dignity and respect has led us to the creation of Dalit Solidarity. For almost two decades, we have been actively serving a population often forgotten and oppressed. They are Dalits, one sixth of the Indian population out of 1.3 billion. They are invisible and insignificant under the India’s hidden apartheid of discrimination. While caste-based discrimination continues to grow and equality is just a dream, our continued work in the vital area of education, healthcare and development have ignited peoples’ hope for a better future. Dalits have been the victims of social oppression, economic injustice and institutional violence for centuries. This is quite a long way but a good road map to succeed their empowerment and emancipation.
