We also supported the family with the essentials they need to get by while the lockdown is in place and his father, Ashis is still without work. “Save the Children provided us with food that includes rice, dal, oil, salt, sugar, tea, spices, wheat flour, onion, potatoes, soap, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, towels, undergarments, hair oil, cream, Dettol, shaving kit, which helped my family survive as I still couldn’t find a source of income,” he explains.
Save the Children is responding to India’s COVID-19 crisis by ensuring children are protected. We are providing oxygen, food and hygiene packs, education and livelihood support, and counselling. Thanks to our generous supporters, we are meeting the challenge to reach those in need, just like Kishan.
