INDIA COVID CRISIS
India is facing a Covid crisis and millions are at risk and have been affected. Hospitals are struggling to cope with minute by minute emergency treatments. Tens of thousands cannot get treatment and thousands are dying every day.
Child Impact was approached through its Operation Child Rescue Director, Anita Kanaiya located in Bangalore India with an urgent request for help. She has been appointed to lead the efforts in relief plans for a local Christian medical group. The group has requested Child Impact International assist with a large ventilator and monitoring equipment in order to help save lives.
Child Impact has advanced $25,000 immediately to purchase this equipment to save lives but more is needed urgently to provide emergency resources to all facing crisis and disaster.
Child Impact needs to raise another $100,000 for equipment & beds in Bangalore Christian hospitals through its Rice, Health & Education fund.

This fund was originally the “Rice Appeal” that Child Impact does each year to support Adventist Mission boarding schools in Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, it was extended to include hand soap and health education.
The Pandemic is now causing hardship at all levels. Many teachers and pastors have not received pay for two months or more because the schools have no funds. Students are also struggling at home.
Through our Emergency Rice and Health Fund, Child Impact will:
- Ensure that all schools have 6 months of rice supply for when the children return to school. This will include soap and health education.
- Where children are still at home, and it’s possible, assistance will be sent to students at home.
- Distribute rice to all teachers in need and where funds allow, also provide to unpaid ministers.
