For more than 30 years Future Hope has been helping vulnerable children escape the poverty and danger of the streets by providing safe homes where they feel cared for and happy.
Future Hope is a charitable organisation which provides opportunity through its homes, school, sports and medical programme for some of
the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India.
We put society's most vulnerable children at the centre of all we do, and after 33 years we understand the problems they face,
and the solutions that dramatically and permanently change their lives for the better
Future Hope Covid 19 Emergency Response Ration Packs
The situation in India remains very uncertain. Covid 19 has put many more millions of lives at risk. Most people in the slums rely on daily wages that stopped when the country went into sudden lockdown. Dying of hunger for them is now a bigger worry than the virus. The stories we are hearing of hunger and fear from our day scholars are heart-rending. Our children need us more than ever.
Future Hope’s mission has always been to give street & slum children a better tomorrow, so at this time of crisis we are using our connections to deliver life-saving emergency rations.
With a massive team effort and help from the local police we have already delivered more than 11.000 rescue ration packs with essentials like dry food and soap to desperate families, including our day scholars and alumni in Kolkata. Each pack contains enough food to feed a family of five for about two weeks.
The plight of the slum dwellers is huge and is only growing as lockdown continues. We need to provide this lifeline to these families until the crisis is over and they can return to work. If you can, please donate today to help these vulnerable families survive this crisis.
