Due to all your generous donations more than 8,500 families have received supplies and managed to stay in quarantine to stop the spread of the virus. That is approximately 40,000 people who would otherwise have nothing to eat.
Geeta Venkadakrishnan, Director of HOPE Kolkata Foundation, our implementing partner in Kolkata, has sent us this heartbreaking and heartfelt observation from the frontline in Kolkata.
Our amazing team at HOPE Hospital continue their emergency response work on the ground in Kolkata. We urgently need to distribute food packs to families who now have no income due to the lockdown and we also need to provide them with basic protective supplies and equipment so that we can fight this terrible virus and slow the spread.
