On May 30th, we donated food packages for over 100 underprivileged families. in Concow. This is a city in the mountains that was burned by forest fires recently. The fire was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history and the most expensive natural disaster in the world in 2018. The residents have not recovered from the impact of this deadly disaster yet. The current pandemic lockdown made survival more difficult for the community here. This presents various challenges for the kids’ nutrition as well. We sponsored, organized, and successfully conducted a drive-through distribution for more than 100 families. The families were very thankful and appreciative of this initiative.
Due to COVID-19 job losses in low-income families, kids are at an extreme disadvantage due to nutrition deficiencies. We have been identifying such families and providing them one month of groceries to meet the needs. We are also providing sanitation kits to maintain hygiene during COVID-19. These efforts will continue until our funds allow us to do so.
Underprivileged families find it harder to address the nutritional needs of kids currently due to an abundance of job losses. We organized a drive-through event with Salvation Army to maintain social distancing. At the drive-in site of Salvation Army, we donated food kits and 24 servings of cereal packs, snack bars, juice, and trail mix to sustain breakfast and snack needs for each kid for up to three weeks for 25 families.
Support for students in Blind School, Gadwal, Telangana, India. During my visit in June, we provided food packets and basic supplies. These kids come from low-income families and some from orphanages. We had a detailed session where I presented science concepts to them in a way they could understand. We also spent extended time having a Q/A session on as they wanted to know a lot about life in the USA. The overall visit was very touching and in fact, inspired me to create this organization.
