"€60 IS ALL IT TAKES

TO FEED MY FAMILY

FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH!"


HELP ME BY DONATING TODAY

LET US COME TOGETHER TO HELP THOSE IN REAL NEED.

We are living in extraordinary times. The whole world has come to a standstill and everybody is trying to cope or get used to this new situation.

However, in India (1,3 billion people, 18% of the world population) the impact of COVID-19 is of a different order. When the country went into lockdown, millions of migrant workers went back to their villages in rural areas.

Work has stopped, no income is received, an economical disaster and many are struggling to put food on the table. The lockdown also prevented us and our local Indian partners to start pending work on our school building.

The foundation’s objective is to support female empowerment through education. Now, we shift our focus to ensure that the girls and their families have access to water, food, hygiene and health care. So that, once the crisis is over, the girls can continue to come to school and further their education.

Extraordinary times ask for extraordinary measures. With the economic situation so severe, basic needs such as food on the table cannot be met and government food programmes not reaching the ones who need it most, we humbly ask you for a donation of €60,-. This amount will support a family of 5 for one month.

If you choose to contribute, please make payment under the following reference: RELIEF INDIA. ACT NOW!



THANKS TO YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS
1074 people & 225 families will have food & masks

for the first 15 days... but the work is not done yet!

In India the impact is of a different order. The challenge is not only social distancing but also how to put food on the table. We could not stand by and watch this disaster unfold. Through our donation drive, we have raised funds and started this food relief initiative to create a "FoodBank" at our school Balika Sadan, in Jaipur. We are very proud to share that we can now feed the 225 students and their families (1074 people) for 15 days.

WHAT DOES A FOOD PACKAGE CONSIST OF?
5kg of flour,
5kg rice,
5kg potato,
3kg onion,
oil, salt, cereal, spices, and
5 washable mouth masks.

HOW DO WE DISTRIBUTE?
Distribution takes place per class, in the morning and in the evening. Each girl will be accompanied by a parent and receives a food package for 15 days. We will continue to do so until each family has received one-month worth of food relief.

THE FUTURE
When the lockdown eases, problems are not solved by any means so we continue to monitor where urgent support is needed to make sure that food and additional help is given to the people who need it most.
