As COVID-19 brought the world to its knees it put on halt the life as we knew it. India, a nation of over 1.3 billion people went into lockdown overnight. Disrupting life and processes sustaining it. Besides the human toll of the deadly virus, there was a another less talked about aspect of it. The animals which have come to coexist with us over all these years suddenly found themselves with no sources of food. With restaurants, roadside eateries shut, hawkers confined to their homes the situation seemed grim but from it emerged stories of hope, of citizens taking up responsibility for our four legged friends who share this planet with us. One such effort from the forefront was led by Aashray throughout the lockdown period. The team whose day began at 5 in the morning went to different parts of the city feeding any and all animals it was able to spot, be it cows or dogs, monkeys or cats. Leading this drive from the forefront was Aashray’s director Mrs. Abha Singh. The team went to different parts of the city on different days to not only cover as many animals in need possible but to also create awareness on the topics of feeding community animals and busting myths and misconceptions of animals being carriers of COVID-19.
