Over 1.47 lakh children in India lost either one or both parents to COVID-19. These children became at risk of survival and safety. They are also vulnerable to exploitation.
We provided these children with education materials and counselling services, ration kits, hygiene kits as well access to social security schemes.
We work in, Jharkhand, Odisha, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka

15 year old Banu lost both her parents to COVID. She lives
with her grandparents and two younger siblings. As her
grandparents don’t earn, Banu had to take up small jobs

“In Jan 2022 I was identified by CIF and they provided me
and my family ration kits and I got study materials. I was
also re enrolled in school. I am being supported to apply
for support through the PM cares fund as well as some
scholarship schemes”, said Banu
