Amidst the pandemic and unrest, Ekta's mother also passed away. She describes the last year saying, "We are living in a time and moment that cannot be erased from our memories. There was no time to grieve in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the social unrest and murder of George Floyd. As a leader of a non-profit, I never got a chance to stop, reflect back, or revive myself. But, my grief became my power, and my power become my passion and this became my dream for my staff, team and everyone who was impacted."
Though things may feel chaotic, Ekta and her team at CAPI hope to offer hope and stability to their clients and those hit hardest by the consequences of COVID-19. Learn more about CAPI and opportunities to support their mission.
