Rural village mothers
"700 rural villages - mothers from these villages are members of IIMC - some in our Woman Peace Council, some run little businesses with our microcredit loan which are now no longer active because of the 100% lockdown. Most of them have been living on their daily earnings from 'hand to mouth'. They are the ones who are suffering the most and are unable to even have 2 meals a day."

 

Churches, mosques and temples are closed. Universities, colleges and schools are off. The world has shut down her doors. People are suffering, struggling and starving. Every day we, in our IIMC Mission, are serving food and distributing essential commodities among poor and destitute families who were living on daily work but now can't work and have no money."

 

Our sponsors and trustees have donated generously to help IIMC get through this difficult time.

"Thank you, everyone, for your donation and contribution during this catastrophic crisis period,"

Dr Sujit Brahmochary.

Damage by AmPhan Cyclone and Manson Water

In May 2020, Super Cyclone Amphan ravaged through IIMC Kolkata and parts of West Bengal adding to the hardship and miseries the people have been experiencing from the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.  The Children's Campus was damaged by the AmPhan Cyclone and Manson Water. IIMC's Children Centre will get a new floor, play ground, playing instruments and new space.

 

Dr Sujit and IIMC are reconstructing the ground with collected wasted pieces of marvel stone to create a beautiful lawn and play ground for the resident children.

Here is a letter from Dr. Sujit on how IIMC had been coping with the Pandemic Lockdown, the Amphan Cyclone & Super Monsoon Flood.  ​Please donate and help us support the work of IIMC  during the coronavirus pandemic crisis. Thank You
