Strict social distancing for parents
A message from Splash’s Project WISE & Interim Kolkata Country Director, Manish Joshi:
Greetings! We in Kolkata are passing through unprecedented time of COVID19, coupled with Cyclone Amphan. Who would have imagined that schools would shut down for such long period? But this is our hour of need and we must aim to keep our children and communities safe. The water and sanitation projects Splash implements are going through the same difficult phase with schools being closed. However, we are still able to complete some of the infrastructure work required to ensure that kids have access to WASH facilities when they return to school. This includes installing water filtration systems, drinking and handwashing stations, and constructing new toilets. In Kolkata, infrastructure work is progressing at eight campuses.
Splash India, along with our implementation partner in Kolkata, are preparing for the next round of interventions at your schools as soon as we are able. I do appreciate school administrations for being strong during this time and recognize your efforts in distributing the mid-day meal rations to families in need.
I take this opportunity to thank students; parents for keeping children safe; school leadership and teams; government leadership and its team; our donors; government agencies; and Splash India & Splash United States team.
