As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable. In testing times as these, the need to be safe and healthy is not lost on us. However, this isolation period has truly isolated us from witnessing the traumatizing situation of those poor and needy, the difficulties of the homeless and the hardships of the section of society who cannot afford to be safe and healthy. One such important section that Bhumi closely works with, are the shelter homes and the children residing in them. Across India Bhumi is closely associated with around 200 such orphanages & they are facing the brunt of this lockdown more than any of us. Mainly dependent on donations these homes are now struggling to provide the basic three meals to their children. Imagine their plight with each home having an average of around 50 children and staff, when some of us are facing difficulties ourselves with a family of 3-4 people to go out and buy enough groceries.
We are launching this project to help provide basic grocery to these homes – we have built a strong volunteer team that will call and assess the needs of these homes periodically. Once these needs are recorded, we will connect with a grocery supplier to help reach these basic necessities to the homes. You can support our children by providing financial assistance that will help us pay for their needs until the CoVid-19 virus crisis passes. Be the champion and stand by our children in this testing time. Your support will help us ensure that no child sleeps hungry during this period of turmoil and uncertainty.
We have already started working – (a) our committed volunteers have started calling the homes to asses and value their basic needs. (b) building a database grocery suppliers & delivery services that can help us reach these needs to our home. The funds raised will be utilized to pay for the groceries, Bhumi will directly make payments to the suppliers & ensure that the delivery is done on time. We will communicate back to you on how many have been helped too!
