2-19-21 Report on Vitamin A Distribution in India

Dear Friends,

The COVID-19 pandemic is still very much a threat in India. While infection rates have come down this year, India’s economy shrank more than any other major economy in 2020 -- by a crushing 10 percent. This left millions of poor families out of work and on the verge of starvation. They will continue to be at risk of hunger and malnutrition through 2021.

SevaChild thus continues to focus on providing meals and food rations to poor families in eight Indian states. One food ration bundle provides a month’s worth of food to a family. These rations make all the difference to thousands of families who have no other options for feeding their loved ones.

We encourage you to donate to our emergency food rations program on GlobalGiving to help them eat and survive during these pandemic times. Please consider becoming a monthly donor as it will be months, perhaps many months, before they will be able to work without the threat of the virus. Please click here to give.

When the lockdown is lifted and conditions are safer for our staff and volunteers, we will return to providing vitamin A doses for children under the age of five in India. 

We appreciate your donations, and your understanding during this challenging time in our world. 

Sincerely,

Jeff Bibler

Development Director

1300 families fed to date and counting

As of December 16th, SevaChild has distributed packages of rations that last a family of 5 for 4-weeks to over 1300 families through the thoughtful donations of SevaChild donors like you. 

The pandemic rages on in India as "the total Covid cases mounted to 97,96,769 All India: December 12, 2020”. 

And the nationwide lockdown, one of the world’s strictest, continues to prevent millions of migrant and day workers from leaving their villages and going to work to earn money to buy food for their families. Starvation remains a real concern.

Please support our efforts to feed as many desperate families as possible by donating on our GlobalGiving page.

We are most grateful for your support.

Report on Protecting Mothers from Disease in India

Dear Friends,

The COVID-19 pandemic is still growing and causing enormous loss of life and economic damage in India. SevaChild continues to focus on providing meals and food rations to poor families in three Indian slums. These families have not been able to work as the economy has ground to a halt, and there is simply little work for them to do.

And with many travel and movement restrictions still in place, our teams still cannot distribute iron-rich supplements to young mothers who are at risk of anemia and other nutrition-related illnesses. We are thus focused on providing these families with food rations as they have few other sources for securing food to avoid malnutrition and even starvation.

We encourage you to donate to our emergency food rations program on GlobalGiving to help them eat and survive during these pandemic times. Please consider becoming a monthly donor as it will be months, perhaps many months, before they will be able to work without the threat of the virus. Please click here to give.

When the lockdown is lifted and conditions are safer for our staff and volunteers, we will return to providing iron-rich supplements to young mothers in India. 

We appreciate your donations, and your understanding during this challenging time in our world. 

Sincerely,

Jeff Bibler
