It is well known the year of 2020-21 happened to be an unprecedented and unfortunate year as Covid 19 has impacted all sectors of the society throughout the world. The local communities belonging to our areas especially the marginalized sections like daily wagers, migrant laborers and small vendors had to endure enormous pain economically as their livelihoods have been badly affected. In such circumstances, our target communities of children living with HIV and the children of those living with HIV have also have been facing impacts of the pandemic times.
In these conditions, SPPD has been extending help by generating awareness among the children as well as the adults who live with HIV on the importance of following the preventive measures against the transmission of the corona virus. This apart during the year, fortunately the children living with HIV and the children of those living with HIV in our working areas could be extended help through contributions that we have received from the online charity portal Give India.
These children have been receiving nutritious supplement kits every month comprising of three types of cereals, pulses, dates, the health drink of Horlicks and packets of nutritious mix required for a month. The nutritional supplement goes a long way in keeping these children with serious health conditios and vulnerability, relatively healthier physically. This apart as assembly of people are risky due to pandemic situation as social distancing has to be followed, the parents and the children living with HIV are being counseled over phone on the matters concerning their physical and mental well being. Periodic calls are made by the team members of SPPD as part of counseling measures. Now the aggressive spread of the virus in the second wave since early March this year has been threatening the victims of HIV like all others among the local communities here.
