Letter from the Director
Executive Director Philip Reilly thanks you for your support!
Over the past six months, our world—and our daily lives—have undergone significant change.
Whilst many of us across Canada are experiencing the easing of lockdown measures, thanks to the tremendous efforts of our public health officials and frontline workers, India remains in a very unstable and precarious position.
Many of you have reached out, sharing your concern for the children you support in our schools. I’d like you to know that we are so appreciative of your care, concern and ongoing support. It’s wonderful to be part of a community where donors like you are so engaged.
Despite the fact that our schools have remained closed across India, our work has continued. Teachers have been busy preparing for the new school year, and our Community Healthcare program is in high gear. Since COVID-19, our Community Health Workers have become the life-blood of remote communities, providing health care education and connecting families to health services and emergency food resources. Their work is absolutely crucial to ensure that the poor and marginalized are protected and cared for.
I want to thank each of you for your ongoing support.
As our schools begin to reopen and the children and families we support return to a more familiar routine, your partnership is more crucial than ever before. Your generosity ensures poor and marginalized children are given the best opportunity to flourish.
I hope you enjoy discovering how your gifts have made a significant difference in the lives of impoverished children, their families and their entire communities in rural India.
For the children,
Executive Director Dalit Freedom Network Canada
