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 is providing life-saving food supplies for thousands of families in 11 remote areas of India. Enough monthly donations would mean extending the emergency food supply program through the economic recovery period after over 2 years of lockdowns. The loss of income due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns will impact rural Indian families for some time to come. Your monthly donations will help ensure that they have adequate food to see them through.
