Why we need your help

We’re joining forces with Carers Worldwide to support people with mental illness and epilepsy (PWMIE) and their carers in the Koraput district of Odisha - one of the poorest states in India – and we need your help! 

Since the onset of COVID-19, there has been a marked increase in the number of people in Koraput living with mental health conditions due to anxieties about the virus and rising rates of unemployment. Our partner organisations – Carers Worldwide, Ekta and Society for Promoting Rural Education and Development (SPREAD) – have identified 650 new PWMIE in Koraput who require our support, alongside their carers. Their preliminary findings indicate that provisions for treatment and services for PWMIE in the area is significantly lacking. 

In the Boipariguda and Koraput Blocks of Koraput, 84% of the general population live below India’s official poverty line, with that figure rising as high as 97% in households where a carer lives. On top of this, there is only one Community Health Centre (CHC) and one Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) for the whole of the Block, both of which operate with insufficient staff. There is one District Government Hospital in Koraput, but it is more than 100 kms from the farthest villages.  

 By donating to Kit4Carers, you can help: 

  • Organise mental health camps to provide the treatment and support for people with mental illness and epilepsy 
  • Promote mental resilience and wellbeing of carers in order to meet their own needs and to enable them to deliver better care  
  • Facilitate livelihood support for 100 carers  
  • Raise awareness and demystify the stigma surrounding mental illness and epilepsy
