India's Second COVID10 wave and Save Kids Trust

It has been an extraordinarily tough couple of months in India due to the resurgence of COVID-19 infections. Save Kids Trust typically operates as a bridge to India’s public and private healthcare system for treatment of more serious conditions. However, the surge in COVID cases has rendered the broader healthcare system largely ineffective. Through 2020, Save Kids Trust was able to secure hospital beds or oxygen for those suffering from Covid but since the second wave of COVID no such treatments are available. Many patients of Save Kids Trust clinics and numerous close friends of our Executive Director, Dr. Saini, are among the recent dead from COVID in India. Dr. Saini tells us that the situation is even worse than we have seen in the news reports.

Your support has kept the three Save Kids Trust medical clinics operating although the staff goes to the families’ homes during lockdowns. Food rations continue to flow to the neediest residents of the slums. Dr. Saini and his team have continued their work throughout although some of the team have fallen ill at times. They are doing their best to instruct patients on best practices for surviving COVID but without the relatively simple treatments, like oxygen, normally available. This limited care and food rations are critically important and Save Kids Trust is enormously grateful for your help to make it possible.

In January, before this current wave of COVID took-off, Save Kids Trust began a series of meetings with girls and women of all ages designed to dispel the myths and taboos of menstruation; taboos that sideline women every month and, more importantly, cause women to carry unnecessary shame and ostracism. Using a comic book created by another non-profit/NGO, Save Kids Trust conducted several very successful educational sessions (more than 100 attendees) about the reality and importance of menstruation as well as proper hygiene practices. The sessions were well-received and will be continued to expand outreach to more young women when gatherings are possible again.

We thank you again for your help. While it has been a difficult time, you helped make it just a little bit easier for people in the slums of Jaipur by supporting the work of Save Kids Trust.
