Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Coronavirus: The children struggling to survive India’s lockdown

On March 24, India shut its $2.9 trillion economy, closing its businesses and issuing strict stay-at-home orders to nearly 1.4 billion citizens. Air, road, and rail transport systems have been suspended ever since. Furthermore, this nationwide lockdown is now extended for an unspecified period.

Under such circumstances, those who can afford to click-to-order daily necessities from online merchandisers or watch videos online at home seem to get along with the new norm OK as long as they can keep their jobs. In the meantime, the most vulnerable in such a strict lockdown are street children who depend on daily activities on the street where they aren’t allowed to be at the moment. Without going out, they have no source of income or food. To make the situation even worse, those who try to help them also have lost access to hungry children because their services aren’t regarded as essential, at least as of now.

How will the desperate children survive in such a restrictive situation for so long?

Read the article and think about how the children in need could be helped during the strict lockdown.
