Calcutta Kids 2021 Annual Report
Dear friends of Calcutta Kids,
In the first half of 2021, the Covid-19 Delta variant engulfed India and caused a level of turmoil that no one saw coming.
We at Calcutta Kids had no choice but to throw our playbook out the window. Instead, we asked ourselves: What does the Fakir Bagan community need most right now, and what can we do to meet that need?
They needed to survive. So we provided food and, when the time came, coordinated vaccinations for our staff and beneficiaries.
Despite the pandemic chaos, they still needed to have healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and guidance to support their children’s well-being and growth. So we began providing virtual medical care and counseling, and coordinated in-person care when necessary.
They needed emotional support. So our community health workers served as a lifeline.
Calcutta Kids showed that our entire team can pivot when faced with even the most daunting challenges and uncertainty.
As always, thank you for being a partner in this important work.
