The hygiene kit consists of masks, oximeter, digital thermometer, hand sanitiser, sanitary napkins, soaps, liquid hand-wash and IEC (information, education, communication) material with guidelines of precaution to be taken during the second wave. The family essential kit provides essential supplies for families and also includes all items provided under a hygiene kit.

Zerodha has donated Rs 20 lakhs towards the cause and aims to raise Rs 50 lakhs through crowdfunding. This immediate aid will support 1823 families across India. In 2020, Zerodha partnered with Habitat for Humanity India and supported 5,565 families – consisting of daily wage earners – in Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal through the provision of hygiene and family essential kits.

“The second wave of COVID-19 is proving to be deadlier than the first wave. We must support the marginalised communities who are extremely vulnerable in a pandemic such as this. We are grateful to Zerodha for partnering with Habitat. Last year thanks to their support we served 5,565 families across India. We hope to make a difference in people’s lives this year as well.” stated Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India.

“We are trying to do our bit to help save lives and livelihoods affected by this crisis. We hope to do as much as possible to help vulnerable people who need assistance to fight this pandemic” stated Nithin Kamath, Founder and CEO, Zerodha.
