A new global health crisis has opened up in a rural region of India, leaving a large swath of the population hungry, homeless and isolated.
According to the latest figures released by the World Health Organisation (WHO), about 1.5 million people across India are facing hunger, and some 300,000 are in acute or acute-illness, or ALI, conditions.
These are among the worst-affected areas of India.
The global pandemic has caused unprecedented deaths in a range of countries, including the UK, the US, France, Italy and Spain.
According the WHO, there are more than 5,000 people dying in India each day.
In rural India, where more than 70 per cent of the rural population lives, many families have become reliant on the donations of the local community to feed their children and pay for food and medical supplies.
Many of these communities have been hit hard by the global pandemics, and the government has stepped in to provide financial assistance to help them rebuild their lives and get back on their feet.
But the government’s response has not been sufficient for many people in rural India.
A spokesperson for the state government of Tamil Nadu told NDTV that the government was providing financial assistance only to those who are able to work and support their families.
The spokesperson said the state has already helped some of the affected families, but it was only a matter of time before the rest of the country would follow suit.
According to a study by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), there are 1.2 billion people in the world living in poverty, with half of them in India.
Over half of these people are children, and one in five of them are under five.
The UNDP report found that while most of the poor children live in rural areas, many in the urban centres of India live in urban slums, where the poor are exposed to more disease.
The UN report found India has one of the highest rates of chronic diseases in the developed world.
While the majority of the world’s poor are poor people, India’s rural poor are more likely to be women, children and the elderly.
In many parts of the state of Tamil Pradesh, there is a stark contrast between the urban and rural poor.
In rural areas in the state, women are often treated as second-class citizens and are not allowed to have a job, or access medical services.
Many people in India live on less than $1.25 per day, and many of them cannot afford even a month’s rent.
