COVID – 19 in India has deprived many poor families of their income as they are all at home in lockdown situation. Their earning members some of whom are migrant labour,are stuck in remote cities. We are anguished to see many of their children slipping into malnutrition. Pregnant and lactating mothers in these families are going hungry. This will compromise their immune response and make them more susceptible to the virus.
Child in Need Institute (CINI) has been working with such poor families in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Assam, Odisha and in North Eastern States. We cannot allow a worsening of the health and nutrition status in such vulnerable families. Our government is doing theirbest, we can do more with your support.
On behalf of CINI we appeal to you to donate to our emergency response fund, distributingNutrimix, a low cost nutritious product for children and women, food items, soap, masks and sanitizers etc. Our trained volunteers distribute the relief materials following the norms of social distancing, washing their hands before and after distribution, wearing masks. Since the lockdown started on 23rd March have reached out to thousands of families with your support so far and our target is to reach to 50,000 families. Your donations will help us to reach more families. You may send donations to support.
