A direct report from GoPhil partner AVANI Women & Child Rights.
In 2015, AVANI started its first of two shelters for homeless, destitute, and mentally ill women in Kolhapur, India.
Now, three times a week as the sun sets, our survey team heads into the city to identify homeless women in the city of Kolhapur, India. The women found during our survey and those who need immediate help are brought to the shelter and provided with food, clothing, and medicine. They undergo a general check-up at the local government hospital.
The following reporting covers developments resulting from Covid-19.
