Help Ebenezer Community School Survive The COVID-19 Crisis

Tax benefits
A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal' - Steve Maraboli  

On the 22nd of March 2020, we went into lockdown until the 3rd of May in an attempt to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and control the spread of the virus. This lockdown has led to millions of daily wage earners in India without support for their families and migrant workers stranded in cities separated from their loved ones. We are seeing a secondary humanitarian crisis unfold as millions who struggle to survive under normal circumstances face impossible circumstances in their immediate future.

"Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach." - Clarissa Pinkola Estés

One such community facing this hardship that is 'within our reach' is the local area surrounding Ebenezer Community School in Delhi, its staff, its students, and their families. This is a community that we at Metro Delhi International School (MDIS) are directly connected with, and that we can help in a very real way.

THE NEED

INR 10,00,000 - Relief Kits for 200 students and their families (INR 5,000 per family) | kits include - rice, flour, dal, dried beans, sugar, oil, soya, salt, spices, and hygiene products

Ebenezer Community School serves the poor community in Chattarpur (a suburb of Delhi). It was started by a local church who saw the need for intervention in primary education in this vulnerable community. Metro Delhi International School has supported Ebenezer for many years in teacher training, finances, educational resources, furniture, IT infrastructure, English language support, legal compliances, volunteers, special school events, etc. Ebenezer Community School and Metro Delhi.

International School is part of East-West Educational Foundation.
This community is normally self-sustaining. If we can support this community through this crisis and get them back on their feet, then they will be able to continue taking care of themselves and each other. School is projected to begin in July, so April, May, and June are the critical months. This project is NOT a bottomless pit of dependence on aid for continued survival. It is a short term project during an extreme event. Your support will go a long way.
Be kind.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support

As schools continue to remain closed, this community (including the teachers who teach at the school) continues to struggle financially.

Here is a note from the Principal of Metro Delhi International School: "COVID cases continue to rise and India is now 4th in COVID cases (behind the USA, Brazil and Russia) and that is only the ones that actually get tested, who make it to hospital. I am consistently getting messages about people that we know personally getting the virus, and while most recover some have seen loved ones die.
There is no sign that schools will be able to re-open anytime soon. Ebenezer teachers and the community still need our support to get through... please don't forget these vulnerable community members who have lost loved ones and livelihoods. Your support can bring HOPE where there is none."
- James Bellingham, MDIS Principal
