Please give for India relief.
Displaced migrant workers and manual laborers who live day-to-day need our help. They are desperate for food, frightened about catching the coronavirus, and lacking basic information to avoid it. Please help if you can.

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.

World’s Children has worked with the Sisters of the Sacred Heart and many of our other orphanage partners for several decades. These women are selflessly dedicated to helping India’s poor.
