Għargħur Students expressed their solidarity with Indian counterparts passing through great hardship because of the escalation of the Covid-19 situation across the country.

With awareness of what’s happening around the world being part of their holistic education, Għargħur Primary Year 1 Students created this wall of solidarity to show empathy and encourage children living more than 6,400 kilometres away.

As India battles a raging second wave, cases of children losing their parents to Covid-19 are also mounting. While some have lost both parents and have no one to look after them, others are in a situation where a single surviving parent is unable to take care of them financially and psychologically.

His Excellency Reuben Gauci, High Commissioner of the Republic of Malta to India, thanked the Għargħur Students for this show of solidarity.
