People Directly Impacted
Sukna is a 34 year old mother of three living in a remote village who prior to the COVID-19 pandemic created clay pots with her husband. The severe impacts on the community that COVID-19 brought into her remote village were severe, including her own families primary source of income being disrupted. Sukna shared with RSKS that this loss of income attributed to their families food insecurity. RSKS was able to reach her family with 4 weeks of food rations, allowing Sukna and her husband to continue creating and selling their clay pots free from worrying where their next meal would come from.
Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our emergency relief fund.
