Indore | The spirit of helping the migrant laborers in the first wave of Corona was shown by the Indoris, now again such a bright side has come to the fore. The district administration had appealed for help from social workers, social organisations and donors for more than 340 children, whose mother or father has died in the second wave of corona.

Within 24 hours, 16 people have come forward and taken the responsibility of helping. Among them are families of two industrial houses, two social organizations and other social workers.

In the initial phase, every child will be given assistance of Rs 2,000 per month. Concerned donors will help them for 1 to 3 years. Apart from this, in the matter of free education of these children, some schools including the school of Gujarati society have offered help.  The administration is also trying to provide ration to these children under the BPL card.

Actually, there were more than 500 such children in the second wave of Corona, who lost both or one of their parents. Under this, these children contacted the Women and Child Development Department to get the benefit of the government's 'Chief Minister covid-19 Child Welfare Scheme'. Out of these, 53 children were found eligible under all the rules. Now they are eligible for a monthly pension of Rs 5000 along with free ration and education and this facility has started for them. The remaining more than 400 applications have been filed by the mother or father after the death of the wife or husband. So they are not eligible for this scheme.

There is another scheme for such children. In this, the government has a budget of only 10 lakh rupees for the district. 42 children are given assistance of Rs 2,000 every month.  Due to this, the remaining 340 children were left deprived. On this the administration had also demanded an additional budget.

Meanwhile, last week Collector Manish Singh had appealed that donors, volunteers, social workers, social, business, industrial organizations and common people who want to help such children to come forward. 

Ram Niwas Budholia, District Program Officer (Women and Child Development) said that on the very first day 16 people not only offered help but also took immediate responsibility.  These donors will give an assistance of Rs 2 thousand per month to these 340 children.  For this, the concerned donors will help for 1 to 3 years. That is, 24 thousand rupees for one year, Rs 48,000 for two years and Rs.72 thousand for three years.

The special thing is that all the helpful people have refused to reveal their names. Apart from this, some schools, including some of the Gujarati society schools, have offered to waive the fees of such children. Similarly, if they need ration, then their BPL cards will also be made. Apart from this, those who want to help can also contact the program officer's mobile number 7999452570 or assistant operator Rakesh Wankhede's mobile number 7024663301.
