Help People Fight Covid, Donate to Covid-19
Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation has been working for the last 40 years for child welfare and the protection of children’s rights. The covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone in the world. But amongst these people, there are many who have been through their worst in the last year. Our NGO has been working in a pandemic to help underprivileged people with their basic necessities.
With the help of covid 19 donations we received in the last 2 years, we’ve been able to accomplish the following-
The covid donations we received have helped us make an impact in the lives of thousands of people and we hope to do the same for many more.
India is going through an unprecedented crisis.
During the 2020 lockdown, Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) and its partner organizations provided:
5,000,000 meals in 20 states
Over 35,000 protective gear including Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and sanitization kits
Support to 32,000 families for prevention of trafficking
Support to 10,000 rescued child labourers for prevention of retrafficking
We are in the midst of the second wave of the catastrophic COVID-19 pandemic which has put an enormous strain on the medical infrastructure.Today, India accounts for 1 in 5 active cases and 1 in 16 deaths globally. It has 18.83% of the total active cases across the world and is the second among the most affected countries by active cases. With cases hovering above the 400,000 mark on a daily basis, the acute scarcity of oxygen, medical supplies and calls for help are only adding to the utter sense of despair and helplessness.
Children, especially, have been hit hard by the second wave of the pandemic. 80,000 children were infected between March 1 and April 4, 2021, in the five worst-affected states of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi according to the Home Ministry of India. There are many others have lost their parents, are in exploitative circumstances and are susceptible to abuse.
Principal Scientific Adviser to the government K Vijay Raghavan has said that the third wave of the virus is inevitable. Experts believe that the third wave of virus is likely to affect children more.
Fighting the COVID-19 crisis
Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation has initiated a COVID-19 Support Center to reach out to vulnerable children in rural India and urban slums through our programmes Bal Mitra Gram™ and Bal Mitra Mandal respectively and also in children’s homes. Our teams are working on ground to support children and communities with essentials required for their safety and creating awareness on plasma donations. We are also closely working with State Commissions for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) for the same.
Through the support center’s helpline number 1800 102 7222, we have already received over 300 SOS calls for supporting orphaned children, medical care, missing child complaints, reporting child sexual abuse cases in a span of a week. Our team is working round the clock to extend help but we cannot do this alone.
Help us help these children and communities.
