As of March 29, 2020, the total confirmed cases are 1542, out of which 570 are in Punjab province. Punjab government has announced 14 days lockdown to reduce gathering of people at public places and has declared health emergency in the province. But because of that its really difficult for the daily wages people to survive in this situation. So Joy Foundation is trying to work and sup

Solution

The project will be a source of information to the communities in the rural areas who do not have awareness on the virus and do not have protective measures due to illiteracy and absence of the above mentioned facilities especially for the children. The team will be distributing food packages, Care Packs (1 Hand Sanitize, 6 face masks, 2 liquid anti bacterial soap, 5 tooth Brush, 1 Tooth paste etc).The dissemination will be through house to house visits, small group meetings through mobile vans

Long-Term Impact

1) The precautions will help the communities to resist against the spread of virus. 2) The packs will help people to prevent their families from the spread of virus in the rural areas. 3) Communities would be having knowledge about the nearest equipped health facility in case of emergency. 3) The food drive will be helping poor families of daily wagers, Bonded labour etc who will be mostly affected by the lock-down
