We Need Doctors for India’s Artisans!

If you are a medical professional this message is for you:
The second wave is already beginning to hit smaller towns and villages where the doctor-patient ratio is very low; in some states, a single doctor serves almost 40,000 people. Thus, remote medical support is crucial now more than ever. Your skills will ensure that the right information reaches India’s rural artisan communities at the right time. All it will take is a few hours of your time.
Inviting volunteers from the medical fraternity - doctors, nurses, medical students, and others to join Creative Dignity’s volunteer community to provide medical support where it matters.

Sign up to volunteer: bit.ly/3eZsczr

If you are not a medical professional and want to help, do spread the message and help us get in touch with volunteers.

The hands that create need the hands that help. Be the ones.

With the devastating ferocity of the second wave of Covid-19, artisans all over India face the double threat of a health crisis and livelihood uncertainty.

You can donate now to help communities get basic supplies and verified medical advice, so they are better prepared for home isolation and community care in times when the state health infrastructure is under severe strain.

Creative Dignity is using its Pan India network of craft-related organizations and professionals working with communities by preparing artisan leaders to take preventive and preemptive measures.

With the devastating ferocity of the second wave of Covid-19, artisans all over India face the double threat of a health crisis and livelihood uncertainty. You can donate now to help communities get basic supplies and verified medical advice, so they are better prepared for home isolation and community care in times when the state health infrastructure is under severe strain. We are also tying up with health partners and local NGOs to organise better community-level care as much as possible. Creative Dignity is using its Pan India network of craft related organisations and professionals working with communities by preparing artisan leaders to take preventive and preemptive measures.

Donate now to help regions get oximeters, thermometers, basic medicines and masks as well as medical advice for families in isolation. You can also choose to donate any amount for critical care for verified cases that need emergency support.

At this trying time of the ferocious second wave of the covid-19 pandemic, creative dignity along with CAC has taken up the task of disseminating information to artisan communities in the smaller towns and villages. With the aim to support communities who are distressed and may need access to resources, @creativedignity and @okhai_org have set up an artisan helpline. This helpline is to help anyone on ground, especially in relief efforts and to share accurate information, therefore, we request you to share the number with anyone you may know who may need this support.

Deeply grateful to @okhai_org x @creativedignity x Covid Action Lab (CAC) for this undertaking

Today marks yet another day of new hope and light. Vishu, the Malayali new year shows us the spirit of handmade hope and traditions. The first light of the year in a brass lamp, the 500-year-old heritage of making the Aranmula mirror, the hand-sculpted Krishna idol as well as the handloom fabric of the Vishu kani are some manifestations of this spirit. And the story of these manifestations has been brought to us by the Kerala team of Creative Dignity along with the artisans who are a part of the team.
