In addition to our regular activities of providing dry ration, basic medicines and sanitation kit to the slum dwellers, we are also concentrating on rapid antigen testing and vaccinating them from various private hospitals so that they can acquire the required immunity to fight against the virus. We are also providing data recharge to the students, running awareness sessions about the need to wear masks, wash hands and get vaccinated as well as taking care of their mental health.
Since the lockdown have eased up, the people are going to work on a roaster basis, so they need to increase their immunity to fight the virus. Also, until the government permits, all teaching will be done online. For this, we need to supply them with food, basic medicines and immunity boosting kit, sanitation kit, data recharge and psychological counselling since they are having lesser earnings. Also, we have to vaccinate them and provide them with regular rapid antigen testing facilities.
Patient consultation is continuing in both fixed and mobile clinics by maintaining all Covid protocols with the introduction of rapid antigen testing and Covid vaccination via different private hospitals. We continue to provide tele-consultation and doorstep delivery of medicines and dry ration. For students, all education services are provided either online. We have started our Education on Wheels project for primary and pre-primary students again from August, 2021.
Improved immunity due to better nourishment and vaccinations. Access to improved digital infrastucture for last mile deliveries even post-covid. Further improved trust for Calcutta Rescue in the communities which could be beneficial while implementing interventions post-covid.
