The hundreds of children who have lost their primary caretakers to COVID 19, those with COVID positive parents unable to look after them, and those living in orphanages and childcare centres, are in need of immediate care. Extended family, even when able and willing to help, are prevented from stepping in to take care of the children affected as a result of the nature of the pandemic.
The goal of this fundraiser is to provide a safe home for children affected, and separately for those infected by COVID 19. The need to raise funds is immediate and urgent, over the past few days fifteen children have found shelter under the care and protection of these homes. Requests for accommodating several children have since been received.
