Livelihood support to Nandri mothers
**COVID-19 Impact and Challenges:**
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant changes to healthcare, medical education, and research. We face new challenges like combatting misinformation, addressing the impact on marginalized groups, and supporting those with lingering "long COVID" symptoms. However, it has also spurred positive developments in vaccine creation, telemedicine, and medical education. To overcome these hurdles and move forward, we need a joint effort from clinicians, healthcare leaders, and policymakers.
**Nandri's Efforts to Fight COVID-19:**
Even though COVID-19 cases have decreased, Nandri remains vigilant and continues to raise awareness about the virus. Preventing the spread lies in our hands, and Nandri organizes meetups for mothers every three months to teach them essential safety measures. By staying informed and cautious, we can protect ourselves and others.
**Livelihood Support for Nandri Mothers:**
Nandri extends a helping hand to ten mothers each month who come from financially challenged backgrounds or have been affected by COVID-19's natural calamity. We provide them with support to meet their basic needs and, recently, ten mothers received income generation support. This assistance from Nandri makes a significant difference in their lives, supporting their livelihoods.
**A Caring Gesture for Bereaved Families:**
Tragically, 80 members from Nandri's self-help group lost their lives due to COVID-19. Nandri stands by the bereaved families during this difficult time, comforting them and offering prayers for their departed souls. Additionally, we provide financial support of 10,000 rupees to each family for the funeral service, offering a kind gesture of compassion and solidarity.
**COVID-19 Statistics in Chennai, India:**
As of the latest data, Chennai, one of India's vibrant cities near to where Nandri is situated, has shown significant progress in combatting COVID-19. The infection rate has dropped significantly, with only a few sporadic cases remaining. This achievement is a testament to the collective efforts of the community, health authorities, and the government in adhering to safety measures and vaccination drives. However, it's crucial to continue staying vigilant to prevent any resurgence and ensure everyone's safety.
We at Nandri would like to thank you for your financial support, which helps us to continue this vital work for our Nandri families.
