From all of us here in Seva Mandir we wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the new year brings to you lots of love, laughter, and joy.
COVID-19 impacted us all in a spectrum of ways and it has impacted every single person on the planet. These are challenging times for all of us!!
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging data and reports have shown that all types of violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, have increased. Violence against women and girls is a human rights violation. One in three women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence mostly by her own partner.
While the world’s attention is focused on COVID-19, this other scourge is growing. Lockdowns and stay-at-home orders may be crucial in limiting and preventing the spread of COVID-19, but they also have a devastating impact on women and girls living with the risk of violence. Our team at Seva Mandir is regularly monitoring the situation in rural areas and putting all the efforts to stop any kind of violence and is also helping women those who are in need. Women and girls currently living at our Shelter Home are all fine and our team is making all the efforts to keep them engaged, and physically and mentally fit.
All the women and their children at Shelter home have a feel safe place while they cope with their personal problems. This certainly has not been possible without your support. We greatly appreciate your trust in Seva Mandir and for supporting our project.
We would like to thank you for letting us meet our commitments in the field and for all your trust in our work.
Our whole team wishes you a lot of joy and happiness during this holiday season.
