Dear Donor,

Although the COVID-19 situation seems to be getting better, the effect of lockdowns, drop in sales, job loss, is still very much being felt. Businesses that shut or scaled down during Covid-19 are by and large not re-opening.

Feeding a hungry family helps them get through difficult times in their lives, transitions. These can include losses of job, death, any uncertainty.  As we have been meeting families one by one and speaking to them, their stories can break your heart.

Your generosity and donations have been so impactful, feeding families that have noble intent to work and earn money, but due to circumstances beyond our control, we're not able to earn a living during this time.

We are currently fundraising for these times were people need most the most. We have a waitlist of more than 1000 families. 

Make a difference today by donating to this important cause. Thank you for your support. Please do spread the word. 

With Gratitude,

El Shaddai Charitable Trust

Dear Patrons,

It is with deep gratitude that we write to you to share an update on how your support enabled us to reach out to some of the most vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 crisis in India. With your generous support towards El Shaddai’s COVID-19 food Relief project, we reached out to poor and migrant workers and families and provided them with food and hygiene kit to support during this critical time. The outpouring of generosity and support from Global Givers has been phenomenal.

As the pandemic swept through India, El Shaddai initiated the COVID-19 food Relief project to raise funds to support resource-poor families and vulnerable communities who needed urgent food and hygiene supplies.

El Shaddai seeks out all the possible ways to help the under privileged, these are the grocery kits distributed to the needy people in different places throughout the slums of Goa.

We focus on the marginalized people and try to help them to feed their hunger. This grocery kits consists of all the needful groceries and daily sustenance of the people in slums such as Rice, Oil, Rava, Poha, Chilli powder, Turmeric powder, Toor Dal, Moong Dal, Tooth Paste, Tooth brush, Napkins, Sanitizer and bathing soap and etc

Dry Ration and hygiene is distributed every month in places like Calangute, Mapusa, Panjim, Chimbel, Birla - Vasco, Margao

From the month Of October ’21 to Dec’21 around 459 bags were distributed in the places mentioned above and people from various slums in these areas come and collect their bags on a particular date and the same information of the ration distribution will be intimated to them a day in prior.

With your support, we have successfully distributed ration to these families. To all of us at El Shaddai, you are our real heroes and we thank you for helping us reach out to those people who desperately need our help. We could not have done this without your support. Wishing you all happy New Year and we look forward to your continued support in this New Year. 

If you would like to regularly engage in this Endeavour and project, we encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation for a small amount, which will go a long way in giving them a bright future.

Dear Friends,

In the battle against COVID-19, rural areas and slum communities were always the most vulnerable with inadequate food, shelter, hygiene facilities and lack of awareness. Unlike the first wave, the second wave has travelled deeper in backward areas of India and spreading much faster.

Though the funds were short, El Shaddai meets the basic needs of the underprivileged which includes all the base level groceries needed by a family for a month. In addition, we put in soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, hair oil, sanitizers, masks, and sanitary pads in hard to reach communities in Goa like Porvorim, Panjim, Mapusa, Calangute, Chimbel, Margao and Vasco.

Frome the month of June, we have supported around 601 families, on an average 2,404 people are benefited from June till date with this project. The waitlist seems never ending. We reach to the nearest point of the residence of the slum people with all the bags in a pickup truck and inform them the previous day to come and collect the dry ration bags.

Thank you all for your support that includes prayers and donations at this time. We do hope that we can count on your continued support for this important COVID-19 relief work.

The people who received the kits were extremely happy that they had a trustworthy source to rely upon even at the midst of their miseries. For them the nutrition kits were a great help for them to survive the pandemic period

If you would like to regularly engage in this Endeavour and project, we encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation for a small amount, which will go a long way in giving them a bright future.

Dear wonderful supporters,

Thank you for your support! We are truly grateful to all our donors who have supported us this year and every year, and who remain committed to supporting us going forward.

Over the past year, poverty has doubled in Goa. Since the onset of the pandemic, El Shaddai has been serving hot meals to the children and people from the street and marginalized people and has been distributing groceries for the poor and slum communities.  A lot of these people have been rendered jobless due to the pandemic and are left with little or no means to provide for their families. The second wave has hit the country again affecting hundreds of vulnerable families and children blazing into an unreluctant path across India. 

For the past three months, your contribution helped us to serve more than 50,000 hot meals, and distribute 800 grocery kits, for so far-reaching out to 52,000 people in this phase of the lockdown amounting to $44164. We were able to serve the most vulnerable in the state of Goa. 

We are covering 100% of the cities of Panjim, Mapusa, Calangute, Vasco, and Margao. Your support has enabled us to expand our operations beyond groceries and mid-day meals to night meals to the vulnerable. We have activated 3 kitchens in our shelters and our staff on the ground (keeping safety measures in mind) to deliver food.

We have increased 2 hot meals serving 700 meals every day to the children and people from the street and rolled out the grocery kits distribution to 250 kits to the slum families with one months’ ration. Each meal is a nutritional platter with healthy staples like rice, daal, egg, and vegetables. Grocery kits contain rice, spices, sugar, flour, oil, tea powder, etc.

Empowered by your continuous encouragement, your donations will enable us to serve a total of 12,000 meals per day across Goa at this critical hour. 

Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support. If you are not yet a recurring donor, we warmly invite you to consider to start a monthly recurring donation for a small amount and even a few dollars which will go long way in giving them a bright future.

Please contact us on +91 9370712173 or you can drop us a mail at infogoa@childrescue.net for any questions about the rations, funding, or our organization. We will keep you informed of how your money is being used, and continue to send updates on the project.

We thank you once again and keep supporting us! 

With our sincere gratitude,

 

El Shaddai

We are happy to inform you that we have successfully distributed ration every month from last 11 months and will still continue.

During the pandemic, the organisation has been very proactive in helping people who have lost their livelihoods. So far, we have provided both, dry ration, and cooked meals. From the last 3 months we have provided dry ration for about 600 homes. The cost of the ration including administration expenses (fuel for vehicles and staff salaries) for last 3 months amounts to $2500.

Your help has kept them away from the fear of not getting two meals a day.We sincerely thank you for coming forward to help these vulnerable groups in providing food and other essential items. Together we can mitigate COVID-19.
