Hope During a Crisis

With the country under lockdown during April and May, the State-run Homes which U&I supports also faced problems, especially the shortage of food and hygiene supplies. But U&I was quick to intervene in the face of dire circumstances. 

The U&I team put together a detailed plan to help each of the Homes. After obtaining a government-issued transportation pass, we were able to supply the government staff in the Homes infrared thermometers and N95 masks. We also introduced creative measures to ensure that the boys keep to hand hygiene with a fun hand-washing song. The team also set up a protocol for guest entry in the Homes that includes temperature logs and hand washing.\

All four Homes were supplied with basic food supplies like rice, wheat flour, oil and other essentials.

Our team is in the process of setting up online classes to help with the continued education and training of the residents of the Homes. The initial few classes were met with a positive response - and the boys can't wait for more. 

While we may have to wait on setting up our Learning Centers for the new academic year, our team has been busy ensuring that the most vulnerable of our population are not forgotten.
