Myrtle Social Welfare Network is a registered charitable organization established in 2003  identified the problems faced by the community especially the Irula tribe and around the Poondi block at Tiruvallur district during the Covid-19 Pandemic who were severely affected in the lockdown with no job opportunities and means to run their livelihood. MYRTLE worked effectively by implementing various services focusing the children of Irulas who were affected in poverty and deprived access to education.

The children were dependent on the Government Midday Meal which is provided in the government schools which is affected by the local lockdown.
The main problems of the children were malnutrition due to inadequate intake of essential nutrients. Children experience several problems, including delays in development, weight-loss and other illness. In younger children, malnourishment affects the immune system which is serious problem for Covid-19, making them highly susceptible to infectious disease

Myrtle intervened with the children of the tribal community at Tiruvallur district covering 8 villages and providing 250 nutritious meal everyday.
