WE WANT TO PROVIDE BASIC HEALTHCARE TO THE MOST VULNERABLE.
Daily wage and migrant workers do not have access to safe drinking water, sanitation and housing. To make their situation worse, they are more likely to suffer from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, diarrhoea, skin diseases and fevers. For migrant workers, their troubles do not end once they reach home.
COVID-19 has overburdened India's already struggling public health system. Faced with a loss of income resulting from nation-wide lockdowns, those workers suffering from chronic diseases are now unable to access basic primary healthcare. The situation has led many to make a reverse migration to their hometowns and villages, where the facilities are more appalling than the cities they came from.
We want to help and we know you do too. With your help, Swaasthya can provide telemedicine complemented with social distancing. You can transform lives.
