The administrators of the children’s homes we support in India and their teams are giving food to impoverished families and migrants displaced by the nationwide coronavirus quarantine.
“Our strength is that we have 63 centers in the states of Tamil Nadu, Andra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, where committed workers and sisters are ready to carry out this noble task.”
What groups will be helped?
Two groups are in greatest need at this time—displaced migrant workers and manual laborers who live day-to-day. Both groups are desperate for food, frightened about catching the coronavirus, and lacking basic information to avoid it. The Sisters help all who are in need without regard to religion, caste, tribal affiliation or other classification. Please give for this ongoing relief effort to help India during the coronavirus crisis.
What type of assistance are they giving?
The Sacred Heart Sisters and our other partners are distributing rice, dal, vegetables, eggs and other essential food items. They also provide medicine where needed, face masks, soap and instructions about avoiding the coronavirus. When they find infected people they connect those people with medical clinics, government centers or other NGOs that are treating coronavirus patients.
“We would be immensely grateful to you if you could join us in our efforts to reduce the misery of the millions, in this time of great tribulation from Covid 19.” —Sister Amutha
