We are back. After a horrific couple of months dealing with COVID, India is starting to open up. We are excited to be distributing Hope Carrier bags once again. Seeing the faces of these children receiving our bags is the perfect antidote to the distress of this COVID crisis.
Meet Akhila – a tenth grade student from India. She is part of our first distribution in more than month in the city of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. She is one of many who received a Hope Carrier bag filled with school supplies. As schools begin to reopen and welcome their students back to the classroom, we are especially proud to be a part of providing the needed supplies these children need to be successful in class.
The COVID pandemic has hit India particularly hard. The impact on the poor has been devastating. We are doing our part to help ease the burden of school expenses for poor families in both urban and rural settings.
We look forward to ramping up distribution throughout the rest of the year in India and beyond.
