Dear Friend Namaste,
Hope you & your family Safe & Healthy!!
There are so many remote villages which are far away from the city. People living in these villages are still living like the old days. They have radios in which they listen news and only some of them have featured mobile phones. Corona Pandemic news was not reached to these places and this was the reason why so many people from villages were getting Covid-19 positive. These people are not aware and that is why they are not following social distancing, use of masks or regular handwash.
RSKS India organized awareness program in 90 different slums and villages which are far away from the city which included 1.5 hours of workshops, videoshows, wall paintings etc. People were taught with the help of flipcharts on which their local language was written so that they can understand it easily. This awareness program was done with more than 5500 people so that everyone can be safe from the corona pandemic. In these workshops, videoshows, wall paintings etc. the use of masks, proper handwash techniques, social distancing, if sick then go to a doctor etc. things were told.
The poor and marginalized people living in these slums, villages realized the threat and effect of the coronavirus and started following social distancing, use of masks, regular handwash practices and stepped out of their house only when it was necessary. Now these people are also not afraid of going to a hospital.
Beneficiary's View about Project !!
My name is Lakka (Name Changed) and I am 72 Years old. I live in Badi Village which is far away from the city. I have no family and I spend my most of the time sitting below the banyan tree. I have no T.V. at my house and also i dont have any mobile phone, what i have is a radio which i turn on only sometimes. One day 4 people came to our village and said that they are from RSKS India and have comed to our village to tell us something very important.
I also sat there and heard all of what they said about following social distancing, using masks, regular handwash as corona pandemic is killing so many people. They are doing a great job I must say as they are saving lives by creating awareness. Before them no one was wearing masks or following social distancing but today I myself started wearing Gamcha on my face as everyone is wearing something on their face. Now I remain inside my house and only go out when it is too necessary. I would like to thank RSKS India, an organization which is not keeping anyone behind.
