Helping Unprivileged Indian Children Amid Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on the humanity

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on the humanity, and over the last few months, weve been witnessing its effects on multiple levels. While our attention has zeroed down upon the visible impacts of this unprecedented health disaster, somehow, weve failed to see children as COVIDs unseen victims. And as the situation pans out, the pandemic is all set to leave a huge trail of effects on the overall well-being of children, especially from the marginalised communities and backward socio-economic backgrounds.

Even though the pandemic has impacted all CRY America events on the ground, it is still committed to continue the work so that vulnerable children do not bear the brunt of this crisis. This year, CRY America is organising a series of exciting online auctions titled Auction4CRY to raise much needed funds for children during this COVID time. Throughout the year Auction4CRY will be showcasing some amazing paintings, designer outfits, jewelries and sports collectibles.

Designers like Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla continue to lend their longstanding support to the organisation. For the past two years Manish Malhotra has sent CRY beautiful designer sarees which have added a lot of excitement to the CRY America Galas. The beautifully handcrafted saree with zardosi border donated by him in 2020 got donors excited.

Talking about what drives him to stand up for the cause, Manish Malhotra said, “Child care and protection of their rights must be everyone’s responsibility, especially in this troubling time. It is deeply disturbing to see them suffering from the lack of education, health and nutrition, and learn about incidents of crimes against children. CRY’s holistic effort in education, healthcare, protection from child trafficking, and child labor is praiseworthy, and I support this model of sustainable change for children.”

“I’ve been donating outfits from my collection to CRY US Galas and in my way contributing to help raise funds for underprivileged children. I encourage everyone to come forward and help every child to live their childhood,” he further added.

The beautiful threadwork embroidered saree with hand-painted blouse donated by him have been included in the organisations online auction and has generated a lot of interest in the online space.

Events such as the Online Auction are a great way for us to raise funds. We are so grateful to artists, designer houses & jewellers who donate their items to our Auction for Child rights.”
