The spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is the most serious global health security threat in decades. The whole country is in a state of lockdown and the timelines are unpredictable at this point. And in addition to a health threat, for many of our partners its been life changing few days- severely affecting their livelihoods, and pushing them back into poverty. Many of these partners will be affected in the short and long term by this pandemic and the measures that have been taken to limit the spread of the Corona virus.
Over the years, using sustainable energy as a catalyst, SELCO has worked with very marginalized communities like slum dwellers, small and marginal farmers, street vendors and other daily wage income households. We have also worked with numerous organizations from sectors like health, education and livelihoods- organizations who also cater to people with similar economic background that SELCO caters too.
In this harsh reality, we at SELCO Foundation, stand by all our partners and the communities we have strived to serve for many years now. We have set up a task force to reach out to each of our partners and communities; and map out the potential help they require in terms of finances, administration or any other dire needs they might have. Each of them are being called and have been assured all forms of help in these trying times.
