We give a helping hand for BURIAL



Many people were devastated by the COVID-19 epidemic. Raah-e-Najaat is assisting in the arrangments of COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred on or after January 20, 2020, in order to alleviate the financial hardship caused by the virus. Raah-e-Najaat has provided approximately 200 people with financial help so far. Many hard-hit areas, however, most of the marginalised communities may be unaware of COVID-19 Funeral Assistance. Raah-e-Najaat requires your assistance in spreading the word about this vital resource. Raah-e-Najaat created the COVID-19 Funeral Aid Toolkit to help community-based organisations (CBOs) raise awareness about this assistance in their communities by providing sample message, visuals, and guidance.

In the second-most populous country in the world, India, the majority Hindu population scatter the ashes of the dead after cremation - but Muslims and Christians, who bury bodies, are running out of suitable land. Our program provide help for all Indian citizens, noncitizen nationals, and qualifying noncitizens are eligible for COVID-19 Funeral Assistance. We intend to use your neighborhoods connections to contact those who are eligible but have not applied for COVID-19 Funeral Assistance. We can raise awareness, give access to vital funds, and encourage more individuals to apply with your support.

Everyone deserves a home, even the dead

Death seemed to provide no answer in a city where thousands of people are struggling to find a place to live. The City's graveyards are experiencing severe space constraints, and the growing number of fatalities has further exacerbated the situation. While some tribes struggle to find space to bury their own, other castes and religions demand that their burial sites be better maintained. However, across all classes and religions, most burial grounds are allowed to deteriorate, with haphazard burial systems and asymmetric body placement. As if these conditions weren't severe enough, these locations have little to no security. As a result, anti-social elements rummage at burial sites for valuables and bodies.

Even if there were no housing crisis or lack of dwelling space, we would still be running out of space for the dead, because many cemeteries are located in metropolitan centres that cannot sustain expansion. This is also a problem in many other nations. As a result, some of them "lease" graves to families, and after a specific period of time, the graves are disinterred, the bones are delivered to the family, and the newly empty grave is utilized for another individual. If the family wishes their loved one to stay in that grave, they must continue to pay for its upkeep.

Disaster Management

What is happening to our cemeteries?

It's a fair urbanist viewpoint that cemeteries shouldn't spread any more than they already have. However, if cemeteries already exist, they should be functional and

well-maintained, and this is also an urbanist concern. We would be concerned if a park fell into ruin, and cemeteries are no exception. Cemetery care has long been a concern. In the last ten years, the charge has been applied to areas with a high concentration of impermeable surfaces, where rain would produce runoff and end up in rivers rather than being absorbed by the earth. Cemeteries feature enormous areas of grass that require a lot of water, and their impermeable surfaces, such as gravestones and mausoleums, raise their water-related expenditures. Burials are extremely expensive, making it difficult for cemeteries to maintain their grounds. The exorbitant expense of funerals prevents individuals from providing the same level of remembering to their family members or friends that others with money can. Cremations are normally $800 or more. Other accessories based on individual’s religion typically costs $500. Gravestones can range in price from hundreds of dollars to $1,000. The burial ground and cemetery maintenance are very costly. When families can afford to pay for everlasting care, it aids in the upkeep of the grounds. When they can't, or when surviving family members die, the financial equation changes.
