As you all know, India is facing challenging times after the devastating second wave of Covid in 2021, The intensity of the second wave is massive and impact was huge. The unprecedented global social and economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic poses grave risks to the nutritional status and survival of young children in low-income an marginalised section of the society. Of particular concern is an expected increase in child malnutrition, due to steep declines in household incomes, changes in the availability and affordability of nutritious foods, and interruptions to health, nutrition, and social protection services.
Providing Nutrition and lifestyle should be the core component of a response plan to such a pandemic particularly for marginalized groups mainly Daily wage laborers, Road side vendors, Maid servants working on Daily wages, Sex workers, Rag pickers, Auto workers /drivers, Construction daily wage labourers. The children of these sections were usually sent to Government schools where they would at least get one square meal. But due to devastating situation resulting from Covid-19 pandemic, all these schools were closed.
We, LIVINDIANS group are raising funds to support this cause. LIVINDIANS always stand for humanitarian causes and involve majorly in helping local community activities and giving a helping hand. We strive to develop health awareness programs among the people in our community and we always try to preserve and maintain the Cultural heritage of Indian origin in Scotland.
We are now raising Funds to support these vulnerable children as we aim to provide Nutritional Kits to as many children as we can.
It is estimated that one Nutrition Kit costs Rs 1500/- (Rupees one thousand five hundred rupees only) per child. The items in kit has almost all the essential nutrients such as Proteins, Carbohydrates, Iron, healthy fats and Vitamins for a balanced diet together with Covid essentials for hygiene and safety.
We earnestly seek your support and request you to donate generously towards this noble cause. Let’s do our best to help young children with essential nutrition they deserve. Children have the right to grow healthy and safe. Let us play our part. And kindly share the link with your family and friends so they too can join in the cause and make a difference.
Thanking You All,
