SOUTH INDIA– The children in our preschools and their families are suffering under the national lockdown. Daily wage earners, parents were caught without resources; they lack food, fresh water, and cooking fuel. Three generations crowd in one-room huts for endless days, growing more desperate. The staff has enlisted police support to get food to families — staples that require cooking, nothing fresh.
Preschool funds are running low. We need money for food and to ensure that the preschools will reopen.
The children are hungry, many traumatized by family violence. They are lacking stimulation and free movement. They will need their schools more than ever, where they are safe, where good food, hygiene, health care, learning, play, loving teachers and friends will restore their fractured young lives.
We ask your help. The children need food now and the assurance of their preschools welcoming them back.
HKI is an all-volunteer organization, supporting three preschools for 170 children. 100% of your donation goes directly to the support of the schools.
