Covid Appropriate Behaviours and Relief in Slums

By Akhilesh Tewari | Director

Slum communities in our project areas in Lucknow are largely affected by the devastating impact of Covid 19 and lockdown. Slum  communities  including children, girls and women are affected most due to deprivations and extreme poverty in their families, food shortage, livelihood insecurity, closure of educational institutions, mid-day meals, vulnerabilities in terms of child marriage, child labour, low participation and communication opportunities and reduced delivery of basic mother and child health services in current Covid 19 induced situation and difficulties.  Therefore, prevention of Covid spread risks and addressing difficulties being faced by them emerged as an immediate priority.

Community volunteers, adolescent girls groups and child reporters developed in slum communities by Sarathi Development Foundation are actively engaged in awareness building on Covid Appropriate behaviours including frequent hand wash with soap for minimum 40 seconds each time, maintaining 6 feets physical distance at minimum and masking up among community members to prevent spread of Covid 19 risks. While promoting appropriate behaviours, community members are encouraged for Covid vaccination as per government schedule and guidelines to reduce Covid 19 risks.They are promoting Covid appropriate behaviours and vaccination through home based counselling, story writing, posters, small group meetings in their slums using the communication material developed by the government and development agencies. 

Sarathi Development Foundation with support of GlobalGiving  has facilitated and supported establishment of two  community based grain banks” Hamara Anaj Bank” for the vulnerable households facing food shortages due to Covid 19, lockdown and subsequent livelihood insecurity in slums of Hardasi Khera  and Bhelu. Community based grain banks are contributing to address immediate food shortage and insecurity at household level. These banks provide dry ration including wheat, rice and pulses at the door steps of the families. It was motivating to see that despite Covid 19 difficulties, community also contributed grains to ” Hamara Anaj Bank”  to address hunger and food shortage among the children and their families in need. Project supported these community led banks with 200 Kg wheat, 200 Kg rice and 100 Kg pulses in both the grain banks. Community level committees are formed to manage and sustain these banks in their slums.  Community has itself decided rules regarding prioritization of families for lending of the grains, safe storage, monitoring, record management, returning of grains borrowed by the beneficiaries.

We are in process to establish more community led grain banks, menstrual hygiene depots for girls and women, Covid 10 situation specific slum planning and training of child reporters and community volunteers for advocacy. We are confident that GlobalGiving partnership will help us to enhance our role to build community resilience and impact children, adolescents girls, women and their families to cope up with Covid 19 challenges effectively.
