COVID -19 crisis has posed serious challenges for all of us. During the lockdown and after that, many families have lost their livelihood, either the earnings have reduced or ceased. Families with people with deafblindness and multiple disabilities have additional responsibilities of taking care of the nutrition and medical needs of their child so the ongoing pandemic has impacted hugely upon people from low socio-economic backgrounds. Making arrangements for daily meals is a herculean task for many families. We are grateful to you for your valuable support as it has enabled Sense India to reach out to many such deserving families with ration kits, to help them sustain and survive during these dicult times. Please accept our heartfelt indebtedness for supporting this initiative to help vulnerable families.


Sense India ensured that essential ration kits are distributed to deserving families with persons with deafblindness/multiple disabilities in these dicult times. In spite of severe challenges to reach families living in containment zones and high-risk zones, team members strived to reach to such families with help from district administration and volunteers. Most important was to ensure that children with deafblindness, who may have low immunity due to associated medical conditions get proper nutrition and essential items on time. Providing essential food items meant a lot to the families with the single-earning parent; fathers who have lost their job during lockdown; parents who themselves are aged and cannot step out; families who have spent their entire savings during lockdown; daily wage laborers parents and families of children with deafblindness living in far o interior places. It surely will bring immense relief and satisfaction to see families of children and adults with deafblindness/ multiple disabilities collecting ration kit and returning to their safe abode with hope in their eyes for better days. Your support assured parents that they are neither alone nor forgotten and that with your kind patronage, Sense India will always be there for the wellbeing of their children.
