Contact: Mr. K. Anbu
2021 Covid-19 Relief Grant: $2500
The DHAN foundation used PPI funds to provide preventive and nutritional support to 200 children in Karunai Illam (home for handicapped children), the Karunai DHAN School & Satellite Learning Centre for disadvantaged children, and their families.
Preventive supplies included masks, sanitizer, preventive immune boosters such as kabasura kudineer (herbal remedy), vitamins and minerals, nutritional supplements including millets and other essential flours as well as peanut bars and sesame seed (gingelly) mix.
The funding also helped pay for scanning thermometers and pulse oximeters for health monitoring during in person enrollment of new students at the school.
