“Since last year’s lockdown, we have been struggling financially, but these two months have been worse. We have been trying to contact donors but in vain. As a majority of people haven’t been able to support us financially as many have suffered a loss of income due to poor business and lost jobs too, we are trying to manage from our meagre savings. We are trying not to let the kids stay hungry and also taking safety measures,” said Naveen K, owner, All The Children orphanage in Vyasarpadi. Several NGOs and citizen groups, however, are coming forward to lend a helping hand and a few institutions are receiving free food but paying bills remain a concern.
