At the September 21 meeting, Don Marsh, Dr. Ashok Rajan, and Janet Kelly gave us an update on Club Project India Children in Crisis Initiative.
In this project, we have partnered with the Rotary Club of Gandevi. As a result of the second wave of Covid-19 in India (in the April/May timeframe) hundreds of children were impacted, many losing both parents to the virus. The Gandevi Club had identified children who were in this situation. With our monetary assistance, in the first phase of this project the Gandevi Club is providing nutritional and educational support to last 4 months (the project will continue over a 1-year period). The second phase will focus on motivational and psychological support. Our 3 speakers told us of the global collaboration that has enabled this project, and it is truly inspirational.
