Thank you -Happy Christmas- Stay Safe

Dear Friends

Greetings and good wishes to you from BASS, India

Thank you so much for your kind continued support to the project for continuation of three schools situated in three remote slums in Guntur.

We are very happy to sending our love and Best wishes for the Christmas and New Year 2021

We Hope you and all your family members are safe and protected from COVID19 . We are always thinking about you for your safety and protection from Coronavirus.

I am very sad to submit that the academic year 2020 is almost completed without classroom education due to Covid Pandemic. Since March 2020. 

All schools are closed and not started yet even though the high school education 9th and 10th classes started but children are not attending classes because they are afraid of Covid contraction.

Most of the slum families are still not getting any regular work and unable to feed their families with three meals daily. Starvation is going on everywhere with the severe effect of Covid even though the Covid severity is less and the recovery rate high in Guntur district.   So far 650 Covid positive people died and  73802 positive cases recorded only in Guntur district up to 12th December 2020.   Currently on average 100 new positive cases are registering and still dangerous diseases negatively impact the lives of all the human beings.   

At this unfortunate Covid emergency pandemic situation BASS India is continuously operating Essential Food ration and sanitary kits distribution to the children and their families in three project slum locations and also to many other areas in Guntur District. We are organizing monthly ration distribution to all the children including rice, dal pulses, cooking oil, what powder, breakfast items, eggs, bathing soaps,  toothpastes and face masks with all your support.  We are also sensitising and educating the children and their parents on covid prevention methods through household visits and individual counseling with our volunteers and staff. 

 

Still primary level schools are not started  and children are staying at their homes only without care and education. And they are not able to access enough food daily due to no income for their parents.     

Thank you so much for all your continuous support, we are regualalry receveing your help without any issues.  

I humbly request you to kindly make a new donation  during this christmas season to provide continuous distribution of  essential food ration kits to  children and their parents  to save their lives from starvation during this covid pandemic. 

with Gratitude   

Happy Christmas and Prosperous new Year 2021

Dear Friends and donors

 

Greetings and good wishes to you from BASS- India. Hope you are safe and stay well

  

Thank you so much for your kind support to provide essential food and sanitary supplies to the neediest vulnerable families in Guntur Andhra Pradesh.  We are also sending our heartfelt gratitude to GlobalGiving for donation support by providing us a great opportunity to operate Covid 19 relief camps to needy families in India.  

BASS India is continuously organizing Covid 19 emergency relief to most affected needy areas in slums and villages in Guntur and Prakhasham district. Soafar we are able to distributed essential food ration kits supplies to 5500 families with all your help and Globalgving.  

 we are sharing a story from one of our Covid relief beneficiary Samrajyam  as follows in English version

Namsthe!

I am  Samrajyam aged about 52 years living in a hut at Roadside in Guntur.  I have been working as a daily Maid servant in local houses since my childhood and feeding my family. My husband is a Rickshaw puller (Try Cycle) and alcohol addicted with severe heart problems. I am only the bread winner for my family.  I gave birth to 8 children but in which 2 girls died at an early age and three daughters and my elder son got married.  I am living with my three sons, my elder niece and my husband in our small house.

Unfortunately, Covid 19 lockdownis  negatively affects our family alot with the highest risk of starvation due to the loss of jobs. My sons lost their jobs working as daily wage servers (suppliers) in a hotel and another son selling coconuts on road and I also lost my job since March 2020. My husband is also died during the Covid lockdown times in June due to his health issues and no medical facilities available at strict lockdown days.

During the lockdown days our family just is stay at home and not allowed to go out and no income and no food. While I work in local houses with a small monthly wage and also get leftover food from my employer families. But due to corona virus expansion with strict lockdown implementation no one helped us and no one allowed to come near their houses. Therefore, we faced very tough difficult times even suffered allot to have a single meal for few days.

At these unfortunate days BASS India come forwarded to helped us with an essential food commodities two times in June and October to feed our families to cover a period of two weeks. we are very happy to have meal for few days.  still works are not started for us.   Thank you BASS and all the team for your best kind relief services to the most needy.

with Gratitude - Samrajyam  

 

Like Samrajyam not only the daily wage workers but also  even private school teachers, private job holders, other temporary daily wage job holders and many lost jobs on  account of Covid. Not only poor families but also middle calss families suffered allot currently at risk of stravtion. Still the affect of Covid Lockdown continuing for of 70% of the families in Guntur District.  

Therefore durign the last three months BASS is distributed esential food ration kits to most needy families in cludes private school teachers, temporary job holders and advocates and helpers and sanitation workers.  BASS is also specially concentrate to distribute urgent food relief to disabled (who lost help due to Covid) aged, widows and neglected children. BASS is also distributed financial support to poor families who needs to pay  basic household and medical needs. BASS is continuously  operating a community kitchen  to supply daily cooked food to 30 most vulnerable neglected aged people in a big slum in Guntur.  BASS is also distributed a monthly ration  support to 3 care homes in Guntur district and continuing. Along with relief BASS staff and Volunteers are making awareness on Covid prevention methods with social distancing methods.  

 

We are also submitting that Covid 19 is not stopped in India and still fast spreading at community and family level. Everyday an average 400 covid posive cases register currently.  But recovery rate is  better and still less restricted COVID-19 lockdown is implementing and no gathering and no schools started yet. still most of the families are struggling to get daily food due to all the income lost as well as no works started. Many people and children affected ill-health as well as Corona positives. Unfortunately Covid Positive patients and symptomatic people are not able to have immunity boost food supplies to recover from Corona.         

 

Therefore we humbly requesting you to kindly support our urgent covid relief project to help many families who are at risk of starvation due to no jobs. The ration kits contain essential food and sanitary items as an average cost $10. One small family of 3 members can access food to survive at least for one week. Please also share the project link and do fundraise. 

 

Thank you so much

Give urgent food relief to migrated families

BASS Covid Relief at Brick Industries
BASS Covid Relief at Brick Industries

Dear Friends 

 

Hope you and all your family are well and stay safe during this Covid pandemic unpredictable time.  

BASS India is unable to continue the fourth batch works site school for seasonal migrated families at brick industries, Choutuppal area, which was started from the second week of January 2020.  But due to Covid 19 lockdown worksite school has been interrupted and stopped from April 2020.  

350 families along with more than 120 children are migrated from Odisha state to work in 12 brick industries at Pedakonduru village of Choutuppal, Yadadri District for a period of 6 months from January 2020 but due to Covid lockdown all the migrated families are also locked and unable to go back to their native villages until August 2020.    

Unfortunately, all the families do not have any work and struggle to get a meal every day and no income. BASS staff Mrs Kalavathi, Mrs Knathamma along with the Vice President of BASS Mrs Sathya Haveela effectively organized essential food commodities and sanitary kits to the seasonal migration of locked families and local communities three times. Still the Covid lockdown is continuing with relaxed restrictions. And the Covid positive cases are enormously increased every day and India is at 3 position in the world on Covid Positive cases but the recovery rate is much better.       

Some of the migrated families and their children are still staying and unable to go back to their homes and the works are started. All past 6 months are not able to get any income for the families without work and at high risk of starvation as well as unable to go back to their families.  In this situation BASS is continuously distributing ration kits to needy families with our limited resources.  All the seasonal migrated families living very depressed in their small huts without work and no food.

We did not receive any donations for this project for a long time, I humbly request you to kindly consider making a new donation to 350 families to get more essential food supplies during these Covid lockdown days. 

We are also very happy to inform you that the disbursal issue for our organization has been solved from GlobalGiving and your donation will immediately receive, please check as the notice is removed from our donation area.   

 

Please kindly share and support to help the seasonal migrated families with essential food and support to go back their native villages 

 

Thank you  with gratitude
