Challenge

For an eight-week period in December to January the temperature can go down to near freezing point. For the poor, particularly children without blankets and any warm clothing this dangerous damp cold claims lives every year. The appeal was started following the death of a young girl in the night from the cold in her simple village dwelling and the appeal was started in the Hope this would never happen again in the villages and communities in which we work.

Solution

Working closely with our teachers and community health workers we are able to identify families and children in need and effectively distribute blankets and clothing directly to those most in need of them.

Long-Term Impact

This appeal is a response to an annual need and is humanitarian in nature. However over the past 5 years we have distributed over 5,000 blankets and 1000 warm sweaters to desperately poor children, saving great distress and even lives.The response from the GlobalGiving Community has been heartwarming enabling us to save many lives.
