Impact on Children:
Of the people facing these issues, 20 million are children. School shutdown has put a pause on their learning while lockdown has snatched their access to Play and safe spaces.
The ramification of this crisis has already reared its ugly head. In a recent study on the impact of the lockdown, 37% of parents in India have reported that their children's mental well-being and happiness have suffered.
In a statement issued by the World Health Organization, it recommends that we draw on the remarkable power of resilience that we naturally possess, to mitigate the fallout of the pandemic.
Toybank's COVID Relief Measures for Children:
