Summary

SevaChild is responding to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown in India by providing food rations to poor families in three cities in India. We have reached 507 families through early August and plan to reach hundreds more through 2020. A $20 donation will provide lentils, rice, wheat flour, cooking oil, tea leaves, sugar, and essentials like masks and sanitary napkins for a family of five for five weeks.

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in India have been especially hard on the poor. The country has the third-largest number of COVID-19 cases in the world, and the number of new infections and daily deaths continues to rise. Many of the poor have had little food to eat during this time, and many in the urban slums are even on the verge of starvation. It is a slow-moving disaster that may mean thousands of Indians die of hunger-related causes.

Solution

SevaChild has already provided food rations to 507 families in the cities of Hyderabad, New Delhi, and Dehardun. We are using our network of volunteers and staff in these cities to reach even more families with rations of rice, lentils, wheat flour, tea leaves, cooking oil, sugar, and other essentials like masks and sanitary napkins. A $40 donation will provide enough food for a family of five for eight weeks.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide life-saving food rations for hundreds of families in three cities in India. Enough monthly donations would mean extending the food rations program through the pandemic and economic recovery period. This disaster will be with the Indian people for some time, and enough monthly donations will help ensure that they have adequate food to see them through.
