Save Indian Trans Lives: COVID Relief

Save Indian Trans Lives: COVID Relief

SITAL is a pan India Trans Hijra Intersex Third Gender Nonbinary relief effort to support and save Trans lives. ParivarBayArea, based in US, has begun this initiative in partnership with over 25+ registered CBOs across India, focussed to help over 10000 communities across 41 districts across 10 states. Our food and health kit drives are initiated all over India, and completed with CBOs in Karnataka, Nagaland, Telangana, Bengal, and Andhra Pradesh for the first wave. 

This wave of COVID has wreaked havoc in India. And as the crises deepened, the Trans Hijra communities are once again marginalized, neglected, and reeling in starvation, isolation, and severe exposure to the infection. We need your help. Trans Hijra's lives are precious. 

ParivarBayArea has once again stepped up to save our Indian Trans Hijra lives in India. There are over 4.6 lakhs at stake in our communities of TransHijra families and "Gharanas(guru–chela) houses".  In 2020, our efforts help save and support over 1800 folx with food, shelter, and rebuilding efforts from the first wave. 

And this fundraiser is very critical to provide food and health kits, along with prevention and cure of those infected and other emergency needs. Each food kit is to include 10kgs of rice, wheat flour(5kgs), 2 kg of lentils, cooking oil, sugar, salt, chili powder, tea powder, turmeric and also includes a portion of jaggery, dry ginger powder, black pepper seeds & Indian mint. Our health kits include Zinda Talismath/Amrutanjan along with hand sanitizers, masks, and vitamin C OTC tablets. These distributions are already happening and our core team is in full swing with operations. 

The trans community has been yet again impacted by the second wave of COVID-19. In 2020, ParivarBayArea put forward efforts to protect Trans Hijra communities across 6 organizations. Just as we began rebuilding with Trans entrepreneurship efforts including the launch of our South Asian store, the second wave took away our livelihood. Once again, Trans folx are left starting and vulnerable to the virus with imposed curfews and lockdowns to curb the spread.

ParivarBayArea continues to support our Trans siblings in India across 26 communities all across India  including  Aravani Art Project , GreaterHijraIntersexSamiti, Moitri Sanjog , TransEquality Society , and Transvision
