We thank you for your empathy and generosity in this time of great uncertainty. Your support has encouraged and humbled us to continue our work with low-income communities, particularly with those struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In March 2020, the Government of India announced a national lockdown to contain the spread of the disease. This crippled our economy (especially the informal sector), leaving millions unemployed and displaced. In response to the resulting health and humanitarian crisis, Grameen launched a COVID-19 response program – Give Without Borders (GWB) for Bihar and the Vidarbha region in Maharashtra. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide unconditional cash support to over 1,400 vulnerable households. Grameen was able to impact approximately 7,000 beneficiaries in accessing their emergency needs.
For us at Grameen: you are Enablers of Change, our evangelists! We Thank You for helping us address the many challenges our communities have been facing throughout last year.
