Education & Food Support to Students in Lockdown

COVID-19 has caused a lot of distress across the globe and the families of our children are not left untouched by the adverse impact of the pandemic. Being the residents of leprosy colonies, these families have already been suffering social discrimination. COVID has multiplied their challenges, and now they are struggling to arrange proper meals for family members - unable to step out of their homes for their usual jobs such as rag picking, begging and daily labour work.

Considering the tough situation, SBI Life Insurance extended their generous support for the dry ration distribution and more recently, education supplies. With SBI Life Insurance’s support, Udayan has thrice conducted ration distribution drive for the leprosy affected families between May to August 2020 during lockdown.
 

 

Besides food, there was an ongoing concern for children who were lagging behind in their education due to lack of proper stationary, text books and other study materials. Due to poor supply of these items, children could not finish their work and other assignments.   With support from SBI Life Insurance, Udayan distributed education kits to all students to help them with their studies at home.

A huge thanks to our on-ground staff in the leprosy colonies who have been tirelessly working to arrange for such support material , thereby ensuring smooth execution of kids’ education.
