Kaliyachak Girls School Re-Opens after Second COVID Wave in India.

Dear friends, 

The Kaliyachak Girls' School has reopened this month following the very savage second COVID wave in India in this spring. Only a portion of the students, just 25 girls, are attending during this intitial reopening period. Students and teachers are wearing masks and maintaining social distance as much as possible.

During the second wave from April until now, FORRAD provided food for the families of the school's students. The provision of rice, dal and masalas meant these families did not go hungry.  A number of these families still do not have their government ration cards for heavily subsidised or free distribution of rice and were not able to afford even a single meal a day. 

We ensured that all our students and their families were provided for during these months.  We will continue to provide the families of all our students with dal which is really their only source of protein as none of these families are able to afford it, never mind milk, eggs, meat or fish. 

We hope we will have happier news by the end of September. 

Thank you for your continued support for the students of the Kaliyachak Girls' School and their families. 

Best,

Susan Abraham
FORRAD
