Support for the neediest during Covid-19 pandemic in India
Dear Shanti India Friends,
As per the order from Central and Bihar government to stop all schools, colleges, coaching centres till May 3rd 2020 to avoid the infection of corona virus, we honoured the order and closed our school till the end of the confinement planned on May 3rd 2020.
Shanti India has taken urgent action and measures to provide food for Shanti India Children families and many other most needy families too.
At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in India, the measures introduced by the Government were unknown to many. A public curfew was decreed on March 22nd for only one day but on the following it was extended to April 14th with only 4 hours of forewarning. There was immediate confinement for 1.37 billion people in the country. On the April 14th confinement has again been extended for a further 19 days since infection statistics raise from day to day.
Until today, Shanti India has delivered food to 3180 people.
The bags given them contain sufficient food to feed 5 people for one month with non-perishable goods such as: 25 kg of rice, 25 kg wheat flour, 5 kg lentils, 3 kg potatoes, 1-litre oil, 1 kg salt, 100 g turmeric powder. The cost of one bag is 30 EUR.
We go on providing our food support to the neediest. We have also provided 160 warm blankets for winter to those who need them the most.
We are aware that the situation in all over the world is complicated and for this very reason we are most grateful for your support. We have received many messages from members worried about the situation in India and encouraging us to keep on with the good work.
Thank you to all of you for your wonderful support!
We encourage you to advertise our association, our actions and project to your friends, family members and to everyone around you!
