Kashmir Covid-19 Emergency Appeal
Never before has the value and the importance of strong communities, resilient place-based economies, and healthy local food systems been so clear, as the Corona virus sends shock waves through our lives. While some of us can stay at home safely, others are losing their livelihood, risking their life or facing the loss of loved ones. And for many, social interaction has moved largely online and in Kashmir we know, even simply having access to internet can be a struggle. As we each navigate this new reality, it’s important to keep the big picture in mind. Core features of the global economy — from habitat destruction to factory farming to hyper-urbanization — have heightened the risk of outbreaks like COVID-19.
We are in close contact with our family and GK team and a group of fellow activists and change makers for social reform in Kashmir, and they are telling us that their is a serious shortage of PPE and most urgently required action to reduce the transmission and the spread of the disease will be urgent access to PPE.
Our first priority now is to support our team, our partner organisations, and key influential beneficiaries to help them to get PPE to the key workers on the front line in Kashmir.
We will then look at the bigger picture, and how Green Kashmir can respond to the current crisis with best effect to support agricultural, educational and community-based strategies to build resilience and local community led solutions.
With all this in mind, we have launched the Kashmir Covid-19 emergency appeal to continue to strive in every way to support our team, our partner organisation CAUSE, NGO who are doing incredible work on the ground in these challenging circumstances and they need our support in acquiring and distributing the PPE to the key workers and the Medical staff who are working on the front line in Kashmir.
But we cannot do this of our own and we need your help. Please help us to support our Kashmiri brothers & sisters working on the front line in Kashmir.

There’s a mental-health crisis in the valley where according to a report by MSF, “about 45% of the population in the valley show symptoms of significant mental distress.” Imagine this data drastically changing currently in Kashmir, with the distress from curfews and communication blockade affecting almost every single person living in constant fear there and outside.
