Rapid Rural Community Response to Covid 19 (RCRC):  A national coalition of 50+ Civil Society Organisations. COVID-19 and Lockdown are hurting the rural poor the most. Migrant labour and their families (old parents) in the native villages face a grim prospect -– loss of livelihoods, chances of their loved ones being infected, and further the socio-psychological impact – they may be ostracised.

The response has to be rapid, deep and supportive of the government, and coordinated nation-wide, given the fact that virus infection spreads quickly and the coronavirus cases rise exponentially within the space of weeks. 

RCRC is involved in Direct Actions, Action Research and Support to Elected Representatives & Policy Advocacy. 

#COVIDActionCollab: The Collaborative has individuals, organizations and networks representing the public, private, civil society, academic and other sectors who have come together with expertise in areas of Public Health, Medicine, Engineering, Technology, Sociology, Behavioral Science, Mental Health, Migration, Financing, Humanitarian Emergencies and more.

The aim of the COVID Action Collaborative is to support various stakeholders – civil society, private sector, academics, networks, foundations and governments to rapidly and cost-effectively prevent new infections, diagnose early, treat appropriately and mitigate any other impacts.

To do this the Collaborative operates on three strategies – Calibrated Response, Information Exchange and Solution Circles.

The Collaborative has been incubated by the Catalyst Group of Institutions which prioritizes the most vulnerable and has been active for over 25 years now.
