COVID-19 Giving Campaign
In these unprecedented times, help us scale our impact and provide nutritional relief to families disproportionately impacted by COVID 19 in India.
While the reach of COVID-19 is global, its impact is felt most prominently in low resource and poor communities. It's because there is less access to healthcare and fewer community supports for those that are working the front lines.
In India, a country currently under complete lockdown, many daily wage earners are now facing two issues: risk of getting COVID-19, as well as having insufficient money & resources to purchase necessities for their families.
Sahara Aalhadone of our long-time NGO partners, is working to get food, soap, water and other essentials out to the communities they serve. Sahara has identified an increase in nutritional deficiencies, like iron deficiency, as a long term impact from this pandemic.
Your contributionwill help Sahara distribute the Lucky Iron Leaf to families, providing a sustainable and long term source of iron, a critical component in good health & development. As a tool that lasts up to five years and stays in the home, having a Lucky Shakti Leaf saves women from having to travel to busy pharmacies or health centres to refill their pills.
ACCORDING TO A RECENT REPORT BY WORLD VISION, IT IS ESTIMATED THAT AN ADDITIONAL 5 MILLION CHILDREN WILL SUFFER FROM MALNUTRITION AS A RESULT OF COVID 19: A 40% INCREASE OVER LAST YEAR.
