India has now overtaken Russia as the country with the third-highest total reported cases in the world. The disease is spreading quickly, and hospital facilities are already stretched.
At this stage, our staff have been in lockdown for some time and thankfully we have received no reports of any cases directly affecting them.
In the rural communities where we work, health care is fairly limited, and hospital facilities are both basic and a long-distance away. We are very aware of how vulnerable our children and staff and workers are.
