Serving Communities During a Pandemic

Spreeha's work during COVID
Spreeha's work during COVID

2020 was a challenging year for Spreeha due to the pandemic.  The pandemic has affected our communities in two ways. First, it has posed constant health risks in a dense and congested setting and increased unemployment as our community members are mostly daily wage earners. About 80% of our community members have lost their jobs; malnutrition among children has increased by approximately 18%; education programs came to an almost halt. Second, a reverse migration trend to villages from slums tends to show the risk of early marriage among young girls.    

To maintain our services, we have taken innovative approaches. We redesigned service delivery at the healthcare center by increasing awareness, assurance, and hygiene measurements. We developed and implemented hygiene and cleaning guidelines. We redesigned pre- and after-school, Adolescent Girls Club (AGC), and MoMs club service delivery. We introduced an extensive door to door program. We also provided food and nutrition supplies to families.  

New service delivery has increased the cost of providing services due to additional protective equipment, hygiene and cleaning, door to door services, and bringing school and library to home.  

But we continue to implement Spreeha’s vision as we are constantly looking for ways to improve our impacts to empower people and transform lives. 

Last year, we served 12,493 people in healthcare, that includes treating patients with various diseases, pregnant mothers, neonates, raising awareness about health and safety issues etc.  Our education program served 1,535 persons in pre- and after-school, adolescent girls club, scholarship and various education awareness programs.  Our community and health workers went door to door throughout the year and reached out 14,372 community members on healthcare and counselling. Earlier before COVID hit, our Progga program empowering adolescents in the remote area launched workshop and knowledge sharing sessions to reach out 314 students, teachers and parents. In addition to our regular programs, we provided food, Hygiene material Essential medicine packages to 14,000 people, and distributed masks to 15,000 people.
