Summary

The Little Hearts home for the mentally and physically disabled is in great need. The floods in Chennai have destroyed both the food supply and closed the facility where the food was being prepared. This has left the very vulnerable people at The Little Hearts Home in an awful plight. These wonderful people are completely dependent on others for their day to day living and yet the resources they had for food were all destroyed. Life has gone from difficult to tenuous.

Challenge

Floods in Chennai have killed hundreds of people and have caused widespread damage in the region. In the rush to care for millions we must be careful and not to overlook the most vulnerable that cannot care for themselves. The Little Hearts home has had all their food prepared by a local university; in the flooding this facility along with their food supply was inundated. Food is an immediate need and the facilities to prepare it will need to be replaced.

Solution

Financial resources for the immediate needs will help replace the food provisions that have been lost. As their cooking facilities have been lost, the short term requires that a substantial amount of the food will need to prepared outside. In the medium term a means of food preparation must be established, requiring both facilities in personnel.

Long-Term Impact

This project will develop a cooking facility that will allow them to meed the short and medium term needs while a long term solution is developed. Our response must be immediate and bold. Please consider how you can help this most vulnerable and at risk members of our community. More than 40 children and adults at the home are dependent on your generosity.
