Covid-19 Emergency in India
Covid19 cases in India are growing day by day creating worries and raising the alarm, given the precarious conditions within the Indian public health system. Since March 22, 2020, the government had declared the closure of all activities and this means that the weaker and poorer group, who lived day by day with occasional jobs, are not only afraid of the contagion but also to stay without nutrition.
Why are we intervening?
For thirty years we have been fighting to ensure a better future for one child at a time. We have always considered it fundamental to put at the center of change the education and intervention in the community of belonging, ensuring not only an education but also access to a dignified life. Now not only the education of our children is in danger, but also their health and that of their families.
What are we doing?
Our staff started to deliver food and sanitary kits from 30 March onwards, to the slums of Vijayawada and Hyderabad. Besides supply, the basic necessities are the distribution of information kits in order to explain how to defend yourself the virus.
We distribute to families every week:
-1 sanitary kit, consisting of masks, pairs of gloves, a bottle of disinfectant and a supply of antibacterial soap;
-1 grocery kit containing 3 kg of rice, 1 kg of vegetables and legumes, 1 liter of oil as well as packets of salt, chili and spices;
– we provide the number of a 24/24 emergency line, under which our operators respond.
How can you help us?
We will be on the front line as long as we have the strength and we can count on your support. You can support us through a donation that will guarantee protection and food for the weakest and most marginalized. 1 grocery kit that ensures weekly meals for a family at the cost of 10 euros. 1 sanitary kit, also for one week, which has a cost of 7 euros each.
