The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has created a dark and desperate situation across India. The rural villages where we work are made particularly vulnerable by a lack of access to resources and care. Healing Fields is working to build capacity in these communities and create bridges to healthcare and aid. During the first wave, our Community Health Entrepreneurs proved to be crucial nodal points from which knowledge, best practices and emergency aid could be distributed. We are now working in 1000 villages to train the CHE on response, activate resilient village level committees and build a teleconsulting network, which includes mental health support and is linked to local hospitals. Further, the CHEs will be village level anchors for creating quarantine centers and distributing emergency aid like rations and medication.
