A reminder that the world needs to come together to create better days
Watch a group of Indian singers share an uplifting message
As the second wave of COVID-19 continues to devastate lives in India, this week we’ve shared how hope is possible through kind donors sending financial support, community leaders delivering oxygen, medicine and food and even inspiring videos like the one below, YouTuber Astrid Pereira’s India cover of “We Are The World.”
Astrid explains the context of video in her YouTube description. “Ten years ago a few friends of mine kindly agreed to help me make a ‘We Are The World’ India Cover. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fix it up at the edit table. Last year’s lockdown helped us revive this project, and here we are.”
The inspiring video comes during a tough time in India, and Children Believe is helping ensure children in our programs are safe. We’re providing food rations, cash vouchers and feminine hygiene products, among other activities such as working with governments and agencies to enhance vaccine rollout.
