Dear Everyone,
 
Greetings from Saheli Trust,

With the growing numbers in the Covid-19 cases all around the world, hope that you all are taking good care of yourselves. Those with High BP, Heart related problems and diabetes, please take extra care of yourself and maintain social distancing. 

In Saheli we are also following the WHO guidelines related to COVID-19 while going out to help people and also at home.

COVID-19 Relief Efforts
In Dehradun, in order to limit the spread of Coronavirus, there are a number of "containment zones" where coming in and going out is prohibited. There are a number of families in the containment zones, who survive on daily wages, and are now in deep trouble, having nothing to eat. Efforts are being made to supply ration to such families with the help of District Administration.

In order to help such families,  Saheli Trust, donated ration for about 150 families to the Police COVID-19 Control Room for onward distribution to the affected families. The rations included cooking oil, sugar, salt, dal, rice, atta, onions , potatoes, spices, tea packets, milk, match box, bathing soap and washing soap. A big thank you to all those wonderful friends and family who donates generously to make this possible. God Bless.

We also taught people how to correctly wear these masks.

Our Self Help Group is working now and are still producing cloth masks for distribution among poor and underprivileged. 
Masks were also made for Kalden Designs in bulk who paid for them. Tibetan community has been doing a lot for Saheli. 
Saheli Residence
Children are now adjusting to this new "Normal" thing going on in the world. Adapting themselves to online classes and tests. The adults have started going to work on alternate days and some days it is work from home. The first month with COVID-19 was a bit restless, but now everyone is adjusting to live with this by taking extra precautions while going out.


Children, trying their hands on mask making...
They are now spending more time on extra curricular activities...
Getting up early and doing yoga goes a long way in keeping them healthy...
Hello !
Dear Everyone,

I write to you today with a lot of hope and faith. We are in a bad situation due to Coronavirus and we need your help.

As you may remember, Saheli Trust bought land in Dehradun for construction of our own home for the children of Saheli Trust. We also had a donor who had promised to finance the construction of the home, pegged at approximately $113,000 or roughly GBP 92,000.

We had got the sanction from the authorities for building and things were going well. I'm sure you've read all this in our newsletter. Now with COVID-19 everything has come to a stand still. It is now very unlikely that he will fund it, so we are really stuck.

Details of the project, including estimates, approval letter and maps, are here:

I request each and everyone to please help us out of this dire situation. The permission we have expires in 2 years, so all the efforts we have put in and the money we have spent so far will go in vain.

Please help us raise funds for the building.

Warm Regards,

Shruti
