What We Did to Support Rural Communities in 2020
COVID-19 may no longer remain an urban phenomenon. With thousands of migrant daily wage workers starting to move back to their villages, the infection could well multiply manifold in the coming days. And COVID-19 could become a ‘community threat’. One of the biggest challenges in remote rural areas, apart from inadequate Corona virus healthcare facilities at their doorsteps, is the lack of awareness about the pandemic and the measures that are essential to keep one safe and secure in this situation. Unavailability of ration, masks and sanitizers, testing kits, and adequate healthcare facilities especially for COVID-19, are the other lacunae that make the challenge look insurmountable at the moment.
PRADAN, present in around 9,000 very remote and backward villages of 36 poorest districts in seven states of India, touches almost 4.5 million lives every day. Through its presence and deep rooted community relationships it is uniquely placed to support all COVID-19 related interventions, besides feedback to the administration on the situation and needs of the community on the ground.
Stories From the Field
One can catch COVID-19, irrespective of how sunny or hot the weather is. Countries with hot weather have reported cases of COVID-19. For protection, one must make sure to clean hands frequently and thoroughly and avoid touching eyes, mouth, and nose.
