Road to Recovery 2.0

The Covid-19 pandemic has plunged India's healthcare system into crisis. Through its Road to Recovery 2.0 COVID-19 Response, Habitat India is supporting vulnerable communities during the deadly second wave of the pandemic.

Friesland Campina and Habitat India have come together to raise funds to build Habitat Care Centres, to support Hospitals with Equipment and to distribute Hygiene and Family Essential Kits. Friesland Campina has reached out to its global employees in support of this effort. 

All efforts of Habitat India are supported by independently sourced funding. There is still a lot of work needing support. Your contribution will help us increase our reach and impact.

Habitat Care Centres

In partnership with local governments and on-ground partners, Habitat India is setting up Habitat Care Centres to equip underused healthcare or government buildings and create a surge capacity of:

  • oxygen concentrators
  • drinking water
  • hygiene facilities
  • beds and mattresses
  • hygiene products
  • sufficient PPE for healthcare workers

Habitat Care Centres will augment existing medical infrastructure and support vulnerable individuals with safe shelter to isolate or quarantine, keeping families safe and preventing transmission.

The centres are designed to treat mild and moderate symptomatic and positive cases, helping to prevent the overloading of existing healthcare infrastructure. Once set up, HCCs are handed over to the hospital which who looks after the people affected by COVID-19.

Habitat for Humanity India has worked with the local government partners in some of the worst-hit states to identify the next ten priority healthcare centres needed. Each Centre hosts between 60 and 100 beds (at a 6-foot distance to allow for appropriate distancing and hygiene control measures) depending on size and location.

At the moment we are focusing our efforts to build new Covid-19 Care Centres in Maharashtra (Pune and Ahmednagar), Uttar Pradesh (Ayodhya and Noida) and Rajasthan (Alwar).
