Why we need your help

India Direct Covid-19 Appeal

In India, a country where 60% of the population were already living below the poverty line and medical access is limited, the potential for devastation from Covid-19 is significant.

India Direct remains vigilant in protecting those in our care. The children spent the initial lockdown safe within the walled compounds, with incoming staff and deliveries strictly monitored. Unfortunately, more recent local government regulations forced the children back to their families in the villages.

Although our primary concern always remains protecting the children, we have also been delivering food and hygiene parcels to many of the poorest families in the local area, where many of the staff and their families live. Whilst the children are away from the homes, we have maintained regular deliveries of much needed essentials to them and their families. 

This support comes at a cost, and we continue to liaise with our trustee partners in India to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our children and staff. We’re appealing to our supporters to contribute towards our response Covid-19 response in India.

This will enable us to continue providing food and hygiene parcels to all of the children and their families. As always with India Direct, 100% of your donation will go directly to our Indian projects, making a real difference to the children we support every day.
