ChildFund’s fight against COVID-19
Fighting the 2nd wave, Getting Ready for the 3rd
ChildFund is working in marginalized regions in 15 states against COVID-19’s devastating effects;
prepares to protect children from a potential third wave
ChildFund strives to reach at least 10 million people through its overall response. We will ensure 1 million people, including children, have access to vaccination drives across 15 states/UTs.
Through our response, ChildFund is supporting government healthcare centers with essential medical equipment and supplies to help them serve as COVID Care centers, providing frontline workers with PPE and essential medical kits and training ASHA workers. We are supporting the most marginalized communities with food, hygiene and psychosocial support and improving the affordability and accessibility of the COVID -19 vaccination and related materials to all. ChildFund, in coordination with local governments, is undertaking communication campaigns for community-level awareness around COVID-19, its prevention and management, myths and misconceptions and vaccines.
According to the scientific community, there may be a potential third wave of COVID-19. Children and adolescents may be the next vulnerable group in this wave. Therefore, ChildFund seeks support and partnerships to ensure the availability of child-friendly COVID care centers and medical equipment at Urban Pediatric COVID treatment centers. Additionally, we must prepare existing community systems to manage and safeguard the well-being of COVID-19 affected children.
We are thankful for the support of our partners, funders, and individuals who have helped the most marginalized people in India. But as you know, the need is enormous and resources limited. Therefore, we need more support to keep this fight going. Your contribution can help millions of children, their families, and communities stay safe and healthy during this pandemic.
