Currently, the nursing home houses about 15 people who are either old or disabled without families.

                  The number of unemployment in Bihar, India, has been increasing ever since the COVID-19 infection began spreading. For more than one year, people have been finding it difficult to obtain food items, especially for those who do not own their own farmlands.

                  “It is indeed fantastic that AMDA Peace Clinic (APC) has been able to continue providing food aid despite the pandemic. However, we should not overlook the fact that there are more pregnant women and nursing mothers with low hemoglobin levels and malnutrition compared to pre-COVID days.

In this drive, the so-called "self-protection kits" and leaflets were distributed to informal workers passing through Makati City in Metro Manila.

                    What prompted this campaign is the health risks and economic conditions faced by informal workers and their families due to the novel coronavirus. Many of them work and live in crowded places with poor sanitation and no access to

                      As COVID-19 had resurged in India since the beginning of April, AMDA Peace Clinic (APC) in Bodhgaya in the state of Bihar was forced to close temporarily from late April to early July. Accordingly, APC suspended its food distribution which required face-to-face interaction.

                      On the other hand, APC did what it could to continue offering maternal health care services to pregnant women in the locality. Instead of its regular in-person consultations, APC’s local staff responded to their inquiries by phone, and recommended them to seek treatment at nearby clinics as needed.

While there are still a number of households that have been struggling to make ends meet, their overall livelihood has been picking up in recent months. In light of such circumstances, APC has reduced the number of food distribution activities, which used to be held biweekly, to once a month since this February.

                              On 16 March, the clinic distributed food items prior to the annual Holi festival which is known to be one of India’s biggest festivities. The aid was provided to 48 women,

Although some of its services have been temporarily stopped, monthly prenatal check-ups have been continued thanks to local doctors’ assistance.

                                  At the clinic, a range of precautionary measures against the novel coronavirus have been put in place. For instance, women are divided into small groups and are asked to make a visit at a different time so as to avoid congestion.

While numerous villages are in its vicinity, local residents are faced with a dire economic situation. The villagers have been hit hard by a high unemployment rate, and there are only limited job opportunities available that are predominantly daily labour work. All of this has taken a toll on them, making their life chronically unstable.

Flying over Lake Victoria, it was one such view that struck me at the very first moment when our plane entered Rwanda.

                                              Rwanda is often cited as “a country of a thousand hills”. For those who remember Hôtel des Mille Collines from a 2004 movie “Hotel Rwanda”, “mille collines” precisely means a thousand hills. Just as what the name embodies, the landscape changes dramatically from fields to countless hills beyond

Several days of incessant rain caused extensive flood in many parts including Colombo. More than 100 people died and more than 250,000 people were affected around the country.

                                                                              As the second stage of relief activities, AMDA International joined AMDA Sri Lanka and Ministry of Health to conducted a free medical and relief mission in the Kolonnawa village. Kolonnawa is a low-lying area in the outskirts of Colombo inhabited by all three ethnic groups of Sri Lanka Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim. The area was inundated during the flood in May. People experienced property damage and loss along with severe living conditions during the flood and according to the head priest from the local Buddhist temple the area hardly received any help from outside. This much-needed mission was made possible with the generous and timely support from Rissho Kosei-kai`s “Donate-a-Meal Fund for Peace” movement.
