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.
