AID DC Metro is organizing an update call with Bilal Khan, an activist and social worker with Bombay Sarvodaya Friendship Center (BSFC) on June 12, 11 AM (EST).
As India is dealing with the exponential rise in infections since the second wave of the COVID 19 crisis began, we have been working with our partners on the ground and sending funds to support various initiatives aimed at getting a handle on this crisis. Our efforts have been directed at serving the marginalized communities and helping them identify COVID 19 symptoms, prevent the spread, access care and treatment , access medical help and supplies and vaccinations and regain livelihoods. One such partner, Bombay Sarvodaya Friendship Center(BSFC) has been fighting for the housing rights of slum dwellers and unorganized sector workers in Mumbai and its surrounding areas. Since the COVID 19 crisis began, the team at BSFC has been responding to calls from migrant workers and marginalized communities in Mumbai city and it outskirts, providing rations, essential supplies, helping them find shelter and obtain access to medical care and food.
We invite you to join us on Saturday, June 12th at 11:00 AM (EST) for a conversation with Bilal Khan of BSFC as he shares more details about their ongoing work, the current situation in India and the relief work being done during the current COVID 19 crisis.
