The healthcare system in India has faced a huge challenge over the past 2 years, placing enormous pressure on healthcare workers. As the third wave is yet to reach its peak in the country, it is crucial to increase the preparedness for preventing severe scenarios.  An effective response to the pandemic starts from building the capacity of healthcare workers.

HLFPPT is working towards the preparedness of the healthcare system against 3rd wave by building the capacities of community workers. The training is designed for health workers on the frontlines of the crisis to increase their capacity to respond rapidly and efficiently to the threat of 3rd wave, while also protecting their own health.

HLFPPT has conducted training of 1000+ Community health workers (CHWs) in UP and Rajasthan on COVID-19 management and preparedness against the third wave. This involves providing information on the following themes:

  • Introduction of COVID-19, its causes, mode of transmission & clinical manifestations
  • Basics of prone ventilation
  • Correct measure of Temperature Oral/ axillary, Use of SPO2 probe, Assessment Tools- Rapid bedside assessment
  • Detailed modules on Vaccination/ Types/Myths/Side Effects
  • Health workers safety in the community
  • Nutrition during Covid-19
  • Preparedness & prevention against the third wave especially for Children

This training has enhanced the knowledge of community workers regarding preparedness on the subsequent waves.  CHWs serve as the intersection point and advocates between the community and the healthcare system. They bring effective change as well as prepare the community for the pandemic.

We are able to train the CHWs on the COVID-19 which has benefited the community because of aid provided by donors like you.  We would like to thank our donors for their continuous support for our efforts towards COVID-19 relief and intervention to train more and more Community Health Workers.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from HLFPPT!

While several states of India are reporting significantly reduced COVID-19 cases and deaths from the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the virus continues to linger in various geographies of India, and experts believe that a third wave of the pandemic is imminent.

Since last year, HLFPPT is working on awareness of COVID-19 & its vaccination as it can help in reducing the spread of COVID-19 & increasing COVID-19 vaccine administration. Inadequate demand and pockets of vaccine hesitancy with people not coming forward for getting the vaccine due to various reasons is one of the key challenges of vaccination programs in India. The causes of reluctance and hesitancy vary according to the local context and prevailing norms, attitudes and behaviors. Cultural diversity, illiteracy and ignorance play an important role in the health and health-seeking behaviors of communities. There are several myths and misconceptions among people about the utility and side effects of COVID-19 vaccines which act as barriers to the uptake of the vaccination.

In this critical situation, it is highly essential to share the right information and spread awareness on COVID-19 associated behaviour & Vaccination with the most vulnerable communities to the infection. HLFPPT is working on different groups of construction workers who have high potential occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 and Vaccination hesitancy. HLFPPT conducted 2 awareness sessions with construction workers to aware them of COVID-19 associated behavior, facts, correct information, vaccination & its importance last month with your support.

HLFPPT is delivering simple and effective messages like:

  • Hand-washing, physical distancing and following respiratory etiquette
  • Knowledge of the Facts and Myths on COVID-19
  • Importance of vaccination
  • Facts & Myths about vaccination
  • Recognizing and combating negative behaviors as well as xenophobia, stigma, and discrimination associated with COVID-19
  • Seeking early medical care on the appearance of symptoms
  • Promoting healthy behavior, nutritious practices and immunity building


We would like to thank our donors for the previous donations that you have made for COVID-19 Crisis Relief & Support in India. Thank you so much for standing with HLFPPT during the difficult times.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from HLFPPT!


The World is still battling with the pandemic. The second wave hit India even with greater ferocity. India's deadly Covid-19 second wave has devastated big cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow and Pune. Delhi continues to reel under a deadly second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 case positivity rate peaked to 32.82 percent in Delhi, the highest so far. Prevention and awareness help in reducing the current rate of spread of COVID-19.

Though the funds were short, HLFPPT has made efforts to continue COVID-19 related activities among hard-to-reach communities. The magnitude of the community misconception and lack of prevention about COVID-19 is one of the biggest challenges faced during pandemic. Rapid and appropriate risk communication is required to contain the disease and keep fear and false stories at bay. In Delhi/ NCR, despite the strong spread of COVID-19, the community was not following COVID-associated behaviour in the first quarter of the year. Due to lack of awareness, trust and rumours in the system, less cooperation has been received from the community in breaking the chain of infection. To smash the myths and misconceptions of the community and promote COVID-associated behaviour, HLFPPT is generating awareness for COVID-19 across Delhi/ NCR, India. In this critical situation, it is highly essential to share the right information on COVID-19 with the most vulnerable communities to the infection. The construction worker is one of the marginalized populations with high potential occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2. HLFPPT conducted 6 awareness sessions with construction workers to aware them of COVID-19 last month with your support.

HLFPPT is delivering simple and effective messages like:

  • Hand-washing, physical distancing and following respiratory etiquette
  • Knowledge of the Facts and Myths on COVID-19
  • Importance of vaccination
  • Facts & Myths about vaccination
  • Recognizing and combating negative behaviours as well as xenophobia, stigma, and discrimination associated with COVID-19
  • Seeking early medical care on the appearance of symptoms
  • Promoting healthy behaviour, nutritious practices and immunity building


Thank you so much for standing with HLFPPT during the difficult times. But we are falling short of funds to provide support for COVID-19 victims since last quarter. Many of us have done a lot towards benefiting the communities in several ways during the last year. We would like to thank our donors for the previous donations that you have made for COVID-19 Crisis Relief & Support in India.

We seek your constant support in our endeavours.

Dear Friends, Donors, and Supporters,

Greetings from HLFPPT!

The New Year has started with new hopes and happiness. Many of us have done a lot towards benefiting the communities in several ways during the last year. We would like to thank our donors for the previous donations that you have made for COVID-19 Crisis Relief & Support in India. Since last months, due to lack of donations, we are not able to reach our target of supporting more lives during the pandemic.

Though the funds were short, HLFPPT has made efforts to continue COVID-19 related activities among hard to reach communities. The magnitude of the community misconception about COVID-19 is one of the biggest challenges faced during pandemic. Rapid and appropriate risk communication is required for containment of the disease and keeping fear and false stories at bay. Due to lack of awareness, trust and rumours in the system, less cooperation has been received from the community in breaking the chain of infection. To smash the myths and misconceptions of the community, HLFPPT is generating awareness for COVID-19 across India. In this critical situation, it is highly essential to share the right information on COVID-19 with the communities that are most vulnerable to the infection.
