In rural India and in some of our local villages, there is still a lack of knowledge regarding the efficacy of the vaccine and the important part it plays in controlling the spread of COVID19. As in all areas of our Nandri Mothers lives, we strive to educate and support them and knowledge of COVID prevention and the importance of the vaccine to protect us and our loved ones is vital for our families and for society in general.
Nandri organised a Vaccine Awareness Rally in Kolappalur. It was attended by hundreds of our mothers with Nandri Director Joe starting the procession which made its way through many of the local villages. It proved a great success in building awareness of the importance of getting vaccinated.
Nandri has also organised special vaccination camps for our mothers to get innoculated. Our Nandri staff lead by example and in order to give confidence to our mothers, got their vaccinations too. We are also providing an outreach service to local villages whereby qualified volunteers visit and check temperatures and pulses and offer advice and support if people are feeling unwell.
We at Nandri continue to feed and support many of our families who are struggling with great financial hardship because of the pandemic. Unfortunately our poor families were hit by another natural disaster. Due to devastating recent floods in Tamil Nadu, many people have lost their dwellings and all their posessions. Nandri is caring for and offering shelter to around 100 people who were made homeless. Our Nandri mothers from Chatpet village are cooking daily meals and with Nandri's help we are providing them with clean drinking water and basic needs.
We thank you for your continued financial help. WIthout you, Nandri could not continue to provide essential aid for our mothers and their families.
