COVID Relief in Rural Rajasthan
When Wild Frontiers director, JP Sharma, called for support to provide food parcels and protective equipment to help members of the community in his hometown of Bundi, in Rajasthan, India we were quick to respond. During the initial lockdown, many people in Bundi, as was the case across India, were left without their daily wage income.
Through the generosity of Wild Frontiers clients, who hold India close to their hearts, our appeal to assist JP in his community raised just over £8000, which allowed him to supply personal protective equipment, thermal scanners and sanitiser to local hospitals and aged care homes. Additional desks and chairs, sanitiser and masks were purchased for a local school, and food parcels were provided for many in the town who had lost their daily wage income. More provisions of were also handed out to people in need as they passed through Bundi en-route to other areas.
Huge thanks to all who donated to this appeal. Like us, JP was truly blown away by the amount of love and support from Wild Frontiers clients for India and the people of his community, particularly at such a challenging and uncertain time for so many across the world.
