Rehabilitation Fund

$10 million initiative for #RebuildingLives

75 Years of Independence | 75 Days to mobilize 75 crores

On the historic occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day, AIF is launching a $10 million COVID rehabilitation fund to mitigate the social and economic impact of the pandemic and catalyze positive change in the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable communities.

As part of the initiative, AIF will match every donation made, doubling the impact of the contribution. Drawing from the experience of mounting tens of millions of dollars of COVID-19 Relief Response during the peak of the second wave last year, AIF will use the COVID Rehabilitation Fund to positively and proactively manage the changes in the post-COVID world by working to enhance the adaptive and absorptive capacities of the impacted communities.
