our concern

CHILDREN ARE THE HIDDEN VICTIMS OF COVID-19

Children are one of the most vulnerable groups during a global crisis like COVID-19. Not only many are living in households hit by the economic impact of the pandemic, but their mental wellbeing can also suffer long-term impacts caused by lockdowns and separation.

FOOD FOR THE BELLY

Many children are suffering from malnutrition due to parents losing income because of the pandemic. Our backpack package contains staple food items will help ease the burden of food for the whole family.

BOOKS FOR THE MIND

Each backpack package also comes with books, toys, and games for children’s time at home to be more enjoyable. When schools are closed and online learning is not feasible for many children, they need to occupy their time with fun and educative activites.
