SAVE Covid 19 & Cyclone Appeal

Why we need your help

The next few weeks are critical in India's campaign against the coronavirus. Teh situation has been made much worse by Cyclone Amphan which has put 300,000 people in the costal areas of the Bay of Bengal in immediate danger. The help that people now need has increased as the cyclone wrecks homes and livelyhoods while Covid 19 continues to spread.

 YOU CAN HELP

Special Appeal

There can be no doubt that the Covid-19 virus will impact greatly on the poor. The world Bank has said that South Asia faces its worst economic performance in 40 years because of the coronavirus.

Many charity and community organisations in India are trying to meet the increased demand on their services at this time and SAVE has already provided donations to the Tagore Foundation, Calcutta Social Project (CSP) and Baikunthpur Tarun Sangha, for nutrition programmes and hygiene materials.

Your support can help organisations like CSP which has dedicated the last 48 years to enabling brighter futures for marginalised slum and street children. 

Today, they face an entirely different challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic has engulfed the world, but nobody is worse affected than high-risk children. Prior to this crisis, CSP provided all-round nutrition and care for their shelter children and midday meals for their non-shelter beneficiaries. Now that the entire country is in lockdown, they have been forced to intervene on behalf of the children’s daily-wage earning families, as a necessity for their sheer survival.

CSP has identified 57 families (280 individuals) who need urgent assistance. They will be providing a food package of rice, lentils and potatoes 6 times a month at a cost of 190 Rupees per package. With your donation the number of people helped by CSP and other such organisations can be increased. The need will only become greater as the crisis continues.

The need is great and any donations that you can make to our special appeal to support those most at risk will be greatly appreciated. All funds raised in this appeal will be used exclusively for providing relief to those suffering from the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic and Cyclone Amphan.
