Uttarakhand is known as a Himalayan state that is synonymous to hill stations and religious spots for tourism. But the COVID-19 pandemic exposed another reality. The state was reeling under a healthcare infrastructure collapse in the second wave that hit India. With mounting number of COVID positive cases, fewer people had access to medical care that was required to treat patients. A volunteer group in Dehradun decided to provide support on the ground. Doon Volunteers was born in the middle of the second wave with a single aim - to reach the remotest villages of Uttarakhand and provide healthcare to the people in these areas. Mobilising efforts on the ground, the nearly 25 member group found support of the locals as they began their outreach. This is their story of finding hope in the most far-flung areas.
