Calcutta Balo Schools Project

COVID 19 - EMERGENCY APPEAL

Well known Ennis teacher Liam Ashe arrived home from Calcutta in March where the Covid 19 virus has wreaked havoc just as it has in the rest of the world. The only difference is, the Indian people that benefit from Liam's project are suffering from abject poverty and hunger due to the current lockdown.

Even more so now than before, help is needed, as their jobs as rickshaw pullers,building labourers ,carriers, carters and shoe shiners have all ceased overnight. These families live at subsistence level on a daily basis. A lack of savings is plunging them into hunger due to current government restrictions.  They simply can't feed their families.

 

Even though it is a challenging time for many families, please donate if you can to such a worthy and genuine charity
