Context and Background

As we all know and experiencing COVID second wave is impacting life and livelihoods in community severely. This is time the vulnerability level increased, and lot of mortality, morbidity and health/ medical things are very critical.

As we have interaction in field there are several deaths every day reported by community cadres. The pandemic is deepening pre-existing inequalities, exposing vulnerabilities in social, political and economic systems which are in turn amplifying the impacts of the pandemic”. During the first phase, the virus was largely considered an urban phenomenon.

According to a State Bank of India research paper, in April 2021, rural districts accounted for over 45.5% of overall new cases compared to 37.9% in March. In that context we as an organization planned to our community covid response.

Support to Rural India to Combat The Second Wave Of Covid – 19

Our response will be immediate relief, medium term support and long-term actions as well. Because we believe immediate needs to the community is very critical. Manjari Foundation would like to support these families for short term requirements like support for living, ration distribution, linkages with government schemes, counselling, etc and long term needs like education support for their children, livelihood intervention, etc. The one main areas of intervention is developing isolation centre in Panchayats, as we know still due to lack of institutional isolation centres poor families are suffering a lot, because they do not have much space in house hold to isolate himself/herself properly.

At the same time due to ignorance they are also spreading it to other members as well. In that context isolation centres and where possible home isolation support is very critical to reduce the spread of corona virus. Vaccine hesitancy is still high in rural areas, so we need to create awareness and also need to support to facilitate vaccination enrolments as well.

We have initiated the Chetan Rath for these activities.
We have Identified the vulnerable families and will provide the medical kit.
These families will be supported for 15 days dry ration kits.
Our SHG federations are distributing kada in their respective villages.
