The Effect of COVID-19 on Women in Developing Countries: A Look at India

The Effect of COVID-19 on Women in Developing Countries: A Look at India

         Covid-19 has affected millions of people around the world, and unfortunately, many of the most affected are women living in less developed countries with poor infrastructure. The chaos of this disease has substantially increased the rate that women are forced into poverty and has greatly increased the vulnerability of at-risk groups.  Between March and April of 2021, more than 80% of the jobs lost in India were held by rural women. Even before the shutdown, the UN reports that “women’s earned income in India was just one-fifth that of men’s even before the pandemic”. The incredible increase in poverty and unpaid work caused by COVID-19 has forced many women and children to do whatever they can for money.

         Amidst the lockdown of schools and workplaces, sex traffickers and dangerous factories targeted and exploited desperate families. Many of these women and children are lured away with false promises of work and support, without the knowledge of their parents. The places where they end up are horrible beyond imagination. In a crisis like this, the most impoverished often endure the worst impacts, and the hardships it has placed on the women and children of India is truly heartbreaking.

 

Support Victims of Trafficking

Sudara is a women’s clothing company based in India that is raising money for these women and girls through their Daya clothing line. This raises funds for food distribution, vaccines, and other life-saving aid that is desperately needed. This clothing line will be available for a limited time on Clear Givings!  Purchases will support relief efforts and rehabilitation for women and children.  As of 2020, Sudara has helped over 7,500 women and girls in India lead safer and more self-sufficient lives. This is just a fraction of the women who need our support.
