Children orphaned due to Covid-19 stare at an uncertain future.

Losing a loved one is never easy but if one were to compare, there would not be a loss that could quite match the severity of losing one’s parents, especially for dependent children. The death of a parent strips away the child of not just the emotional blanket of comfort, but also in several cases takes away the financial support, leaving futures in a lurch. According to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), at least 3,621 children have been orphaned during the pandemic, and over 26,000 children have lost one parent, PTI reported.
