The COVID-19 virus has resulted in many vulnerable individuals and families, young and old, to be isolated in their homes without access to daily essentials. This is the problem we are facing here and we have shelter, food and access to funding. Internationally it is even a bigger issue, as most of the countries we are already supporting already struggle during normal times. The stress on the economy because of the enforced lock-down means many people won’t be able to eat a basic meal as they can’t earn any money. The overburdened healthcare system means many people will not get any treatment.
Places like Malawi don’t have access to basic healthcare with figures like:
1 doctor for every 100,000 people, the lowest figure for any country covered by the UN’s Human Development report.

There are only 7 ventilators in the country of Malawi to cater for 18 million people. The situation is very serious.
Drop of compassion are collecting funds to ease not only the healthcare burden but also the economic burden of those impacted in Malawi, West Bengal, Bangladesh and anywhere else that may need our help during this Crisis.
