The Dispatch: Stories from the long COVID-19 lockdown

Joint effort by Azim Premji Foundation and Wipro to support the civil society response and help the health system in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an extraordinary time for all of humanity. It has pushed us to the limits as a country, with challenges to our health system and our ability to provide relief services to a population immensely affected by the lockdown.

In collaboration with partners and University alumni, we began to do relief work in many parts of the country. Driven by our deep presence on the ground, we have worked across 190 districts with 1600 team members, 5000 government school teachers and thousands of employees of our partner groups. 

This is a series of stories from the field about the impact of this time on our fellow citizens. These are equal parts information and anecdotes.
