The precaution on the aged people and big awareness and counseling to poor and marginalized people is also a main component of the project. This needs to be facilitated to access ongoing social protection schemes and programmes including the welfare package announced by the central and state government to cope with ongoing COVID crisis.

KARMI during this pandemic, when he has no income, no opportunity to work and earn, it becomes difficult for him to feed himself & his family. Then he’s left with two options: either to starve or to break the lockdown rules set by the government, which will in return increase the

chances of spreading of the deadly virus in the community.
