Mission India continues to provide relief kits throughout the country during COVID-19, but also continues to proclaim the Gospel.

India is opening one of the largest hospitals in the world to fight COVID-19 as the virus continues to ravage the capital city of Delhi. Sunday, India reported its largest increase in new infections with 19,906. See full statistics here.

As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the country, Mission India has concentrated on relief efforts. Erik Morsehead says, “Over 65,000 families that were given relief kits that provide food for a family of four for four weeks. [They include] masks, hand sanitizer, and vitamins to help keep people healthy and the virus at bay.”

Mission India has been distributing these kits all over India, and not just in the larger cities, which have been the hardest hit. “Now even rural areas are experiencing spreads. Migrant workers went back to the rural areas where they grew up in when the cities were kind of locked down. They brought the virus with them to the small rural areas, and now they’ve migrated back to the major cities. But they obviously left the virus in these rural areas that are even more underserved from a healthcare perspective.”
