India, May 10, 2020: During this tough time, with vulnerable families – single mothers with children and otherwise – who are mostly daily wage workers finding it difficult to make ends meet, there is a ray of hope. Miracle Foundation India has extended support to 250 such families. 400 children will receive support for food (groceries and hygiene items) for two months, and if need be, will be extended further. This is in adherence to the guidance of the Government authorities to ensure the overall health and well-being of people who have been worst hit due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The campaign is initiated to provide basic food, funds and hygiene need to help mothers and guardians to ensure the smooth functioning of families during this period of crisis. Miracle Foundation India is providing basic food items like wheat/rice, dal, milk, vegetable oil, etc., and hygiene items to vulnerable children and their families. We believe that every child has the right to nutrition and their overall wellbeing. The support is through cash transfer into the accounts of the families.
Additionally, Miracle Foundation India is committed to supporting families in three remote villages of Chhota Udepur areas of Vadodara District, Gujarat. The Foundation implements projects through Deepak Foundation in preventing child-separation from families. The Foundation also works towards strengthening the families.
On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Caroline Boudreaux, Founder, Miracle Foundation India says, “We may have to celebrate differently this year due to quarantine restrictions, but honouring moms or mother figures and the fundamental role they play in all of our lives can still be special. Miracle Foundation recognises the vital importance of a mother or mother figure in a child’s life. This is why we work so hard to ensure a family for every child.”
Miracle Foundation India as brought meaningful change to the lives of 7500+ orphaned and vulnerable children so far. It was founded on Mother’s Day in 2000 and works with over 109 children’s homes in the country.
