India is battling its second wave of COVID-19, and children and families there are in crisis.
Children are shut in their homes on lockdown and unable to get enough food. Families can’t work and have run out of money. Our partners are not safe as they go out in the community — risking their lives to help in whatever way they can. Some of the children and families we serve are even getting sick…
“I myself am affected by COVID. And even though it’s 14 days now, I still feel so exhausted. I feel very, very sick. So I can imagine what little kids will go through, what the vulnerable community will go through, who do not have enough to eat.”Hepzibah Sharmila, executive director of VCT
From our partner organization in Delhi, Shishu Sangopan Griha’s (SSG) director, Jim De, asks Holt donors to please send their prayers, support and help.
“We are going through a kind of apocalypse environment which the world has never seen. And we are reeling under in this country.”Jim De, director of SSG
