COVID-19 Updates from Cuddles Foundation

To our Supporters, Collaborators and Partners:

As the Founder & CEO of Cuddles Foundation, I want to thank you for your support during this challenging time, and also provide a few updates on how Cuddles is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak in India.

Firstly, we hope you are doing what you can to protect yourself, your family, friends and your community. You are a part of our extended family at Cuddles, and your health and well-being matter to us.

We know how deeply you care for the children and parents who rely on our services, and we can assure you we are doing everything possible to protect the children in our care. Children battling cancer are extremely prone to contagious viruses, and so along with the doctors and nurses at our partner hospitals, we are taking additional precautions to limit their exposure and build their immunity.

We have scaled back our Parent Support Group Meetings, are educating parents on hygiene, and encouraging phone-based counsels where possible. But, our nutrition aid to children continues as of now since that is most important to build their immunity. Thanks to supporters like you, we can do everything possible to protect and nourish them.

Protect Our Heroes

Just as the world moves to #workfromhome, our healthcare heroes continue to stand on the frontline protecting the sick and vulnerable. We are raising funds to provide protective masks and sanitisers to these heroes – our nutritionists, doctors, nurses, social workers and all the amazing human beings performing their duties in the face of the COVID-19 crisis in the hospitals we work in. You can donate via our website here.

We have also taken important steps to safeguard our nutritionists through daily check-ins with them to make sure they are safe and healthy. After all, they are our heroes!

Your love and generosity for the children mean so much to Cuddles, now more than ever. That’s what allows us to continue our work so we can help kids be healthy again.

Take care.

On behalf of Team Cuddles,
Purnota Bahl
