Covid Crisis in India

President Cauce’s most recent blog post is about the importance of caring for the UW community through the current Covid crisis in India.
The current Covid situation in India is terrible. Death rates are high, medical care and supplies are in short supply, and many cities and states are under lockdown. Like many crises, Covid’s impacts reflect existing inequalities. While Covid has hit low-income communities especially hard, it is impacting everyone.
Many people in the CEE community are from India or have close personal or family ties. So many families have lost loved ones. The human toll is heartbreaking and scary.
For those in our community impacted directly: you are in our thoughts. You have our support.
President Cauce’s blog lists resources.
If you are interested in giving money, UW provided a list of organizations working on Covid relief in India.
CEE’s institutional connections with India include that dozens of CEE students have spent their Winter Quarter studying and working with organizations in Bangalore, via the Grand Challenges Impact Lab (GCIL). Professor Hossain works with marginal farmers in North India and I (Julian) work on indoor and outdoor air pollution in India. As a further opportunity to provide on-the-ground financial support, an outstanding organization CEE GCIL students have worked with in Bangalore, Hasiru Dala, is fundraising for their Covid relief work.
Our department invites everyone to be mindful of how the current crisis in India is impacting members of our community. We hope everyone will be there for each other.
