Seva Mandir's response to Covid-19

By Atul Lekhra | Programme Incharge

Namaste,

The coronavirus has brought unprecedented challenges to the world and effected the lives of thousands of people. At the time of writing, Rajasthan has begun a lockdown of all non-essential businesses and services, as the Government ramps up preventative measures. Yesterday, the country took part in Jantana Curfew (People’s Curfew), which also celebrated the people at the front line of tackling this virus.

Hygiene practices are a weapon against coronavirus. Our field teams are working directly with the communities to ensure they are aware and are practicing proper hygiene practices. Such methods include one of the most important in preventing not just coronavirus, but many dangerous diseases – hand washing. This basic action can save lives.

We have taken all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of our staff, field workers and community members. Some of the measures include:

  • All activities such as trainings, community meetings and awareness campaigns that involve gatherings have been put on hold
  • Center based activities such as pre-schools, bridge schools, youth centers, etc. have been closed for the safety of children, their families and workers
  • Information dissemination in communities and internal meetings are being done through online platforms and mediums
  • Construction activities and natural resources development has been put on hold
  • Staff and community workers are now working from home

We are continuously monitoring the situation in our work areas and are in touch with communities in case of any support needed.

We are committed, even during this tumultuous time, to continue to serve the communities we work with, and we know you will be too.

The world will come out stronger after we beat the coronavirus. We urge you all to follow the guidance of the authorities.

Thank you, and sending our best wishes for yours and your family and friends safety.

Regards

Atul Lekhra and the Seva Mandir team
