Thousands Still Hunger in India

Since our last report in June and thanks to the generous support of GlobalGiving donors like you, we have delivered one month's food rations to another 2500 hungry families. These are families left without any means to earn money to buy food, as the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have been especially devestating for families in many poverty-stricken areas of India.  And there is still no end in sight. 

It costs just $20 to feed a hungry family of five for a whole month. Think of the difference your $20 a month can make to a hungry Indian family not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Please help us reach our goal of recruiting another 25 monthly donors by the end of August. 

You can click on the orange 'GIVE NOW' button below to make a one-time donation or to start your monthly donations in whatever amount you choose.

Gratefully yours,

Rick Carlton

President, SevaChild International

Pausing: Protect 10,000 Mothers from Disease

Dear Friend,

You may not be surprised to learn that SevaChild has paused its Protect 10,000 Mothers from Disease in India project due to the terrible coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. Our volunteers and partners are unable to travel to rural villages and urban areas for fear of spreading the virus or becoming sick with the virus themselves. We have therefore decided to pause this campaign and pivot our mission to providing badly needed food rations to poor families who can no longer work due to the pandemic and strict lockdowns throughout most of the country.

Until the pandemic struck in March of 2020, this campaign to provide iron-rich multivitamins to expecting mothers had reached 1,600 women. We're grateful that with your help, our network of nonprofits, government health departments, clinics and primary health care centers were able to reach that many women. We hope to return to this mission of providing this vital multivitamin to expecting mothers once the pandemic and lockdowns are behind us.

If you would like to support our work providing food rations to poor families, we invite you to go to our Providing Food Rations to Starving Indian Families project. Your $20 donation will provide a month's worth of food to an Indian family of five.

Please consider becoming a monthly donor to help feed one (or more) family and help get them through the pandemic. 

You will be giving them food and hope. There are no greater gifts you can give these families at this time.

Sincerely,

Jeff Bibler

Pausing: Masks for the Poor in India

Dear Friend,

You may not be surprised to learn that SevaChild has paused its Masks for the Poor – Coronavirus in India project in India due to the terrible coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns. Our volunteers and partners are unable to travel to rural villages and urban areas for fear of spreading the virus or becoming sick with the virus themselves. We have also seen that one of the greatest needs of the poor during this time is their need for adequate food and nourishment. Therefore, we have decided to pause this Masks for Poor campaign and pivot our mission to providing badly needed food rations to poor families who can no longer work due to the pandemic and strict lockdowns throughout most of the country.

We do want to let you know that your donations did help design, manufacture and distribute 5,600 masks to doctors, nurses and other first responders in India. Your donations also made possible the production and distribution of thousands of leaflets instructing people how to make masks out of inexpensive, easily obtained materials. Translated into six Indian dialects, over 160,000 were handed out in the slums and rural villages of India.

If you would like to support our work providing food rations to poor families, we invite you to go to our Providing Food Rations to Starving Indian Families project. Your $20 donation will provide a month's worth of food to an Indian family of five.

Please consider becoming a monthly donor to help feed one (or more) family and help get them through the pandemic. 

You will be giving them food and hope. There are no greater gifts you can give these families at this time.

Sincerely,

Jeff Bibler
