Being responsible towards vulnerable communities during COVID and any disaster

Posted November 11, 2020 from India

Be it the current COVID pandemic, or any other disaster, it becomes a double emergency for vulnerable communities. The nomadic and denotofied tribes are one of the most neglected populations in India, despite forming 15% of Indians. They face constant social discrimination, criminalization and stigma that even converts to violence fueled by rumour mongering. These get exacerbated during crises. We need to be aware as socially responsible citizens, respond sensitively especially towards vulnerable communities and mitigate such violent impact of disasters.
