March 11, 2021 Report on Protecting 10,000 Mothers
By Jeff Bibler - Development Director
Poor family receiving food rations in Hyderabad
The COVID-19 pandemic is still very much a threat in India. While infection rates have come down this year, India’s economy shrank more than any other major economy in 2020 -- by a crushing 10 percent. This left millions of poor families out of work and on the verge of starvation. They will continue to be at risk of hunger and malnutrition through 2021.
SevaChild thus continues to focus on providing meals and food rations to poor families in eight Indian states. One food ration bundle provides a month’s worth of food to a family. These rations make all the difference to thousands of families who have no other options for feeding their loved ones.
We encourage you to donate to our emergency food rations program on GlobalGiving to help them eat and survive during these pandemic times. Please consider becoming a monthly donor as it will be months, perhaps many months, before they will be able to work without the threat of the virus. Please click here to give.
When the pandemic-related conditions are safer for our staff and volunteers, we will return to providing iron-rich micronutrients to young mothers and soon-to-be mothers in India.
We appreciate your donations, and your understanding during this challenging time in our world.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
