RED AID & COVID-19

Red Aid is concerned about the current COVID-19 pandemic and is monitoring the situation closely. We are particularly concerned about the risk of the outbreak spreading to vulnerable, marginalized communities who are also the communities  we work with. Red Aid is doing everything in its capacity to reduce their burden and support them in coping with the effects of COVID-19.

Help us support COVID-19 affected families

Who we are

Red Aid India is a philanthropic initiative solely dedicated to end most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and their consequences such as physical disability and social exclusion; among the most vulnerable and marginalized population of India, living in urban and rural poverty. 
Red Aid India is affiliated to German Leprosy & TB Relief Association India which has over 50 years of experience in providing relief and support to people affected by poverty-related diseases.  

Our Vision

A world free of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and their consequences
such as physical disability and social exclusion.

The Problem

Fighting neglected tropical diseases and their consequences

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases that affect more than 1.7 billion of the world’s most impoverished people, including more than 1 billion children. India, the second most populous country in the world, accounting for nearly one-fifth of the global population, is also home to the world’s largest absolute burden of at least 11 major neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)
