While India has suffered a relatively low death rate from the Covid virus, with 46,000 deaths reported from 2.3 million infections, the impact on people’s livelihoods has been catastrophic.
140 million people have lost their jobs in the last three months. Most of these are daily wage earners and migrant workers. One job loss can starve an entire family.
An initiative from sports promotors Procam International aims to unite Indians this Independence Day (15 August) like never before to let the severely affected know that they are not alone.
The Sunfeast India Run As One 2020, to take place from 15 August until 13 September, calls upon Indians across the globe to support livelihoods by registering for the event.
The month-long event is a fundraiser for India’s COVID Response Fund through GiveIndia, India’s largest and most trusted donation platform.
