Challenge

The lockdown is needed to stop the spread of the disease. But it brings challenges for daily wage labourers, the poor, elderly, children on the streets, and many others who can't afford to pay for their hospitalisation or purchase rations in this time. Oxygen concentrators, ventilators, hospital beds, ration kits are the need of the hour. . According to some of them, they would rather die from the virus at their own village than starve

Solution

Distribution of Ration and Medical kits: Each ration kit costs Rs 2,500/- and contains rice, dal, atta, spices and sanitation items which would suffice a family of 5 for one month. The medical kit costs Rs 2,500/- and comprises a oximeter, a thermometer, mask, sanitiser, etc. which can help in early detection of COVID-19 and help more people better monitor and manage symptoms at home, reducing the pressure on the already stressed health system.

Long-Term Impact

With the threat to sustenance at the workplace post the Covid-19 outbreak, vast numbers of family affected. This has opened up the serious threat of rural contagion, which can result in medical exigencies, extended lockdown and diversion of more funds to fight Covid-19 rather than aid economic activities. Your support will success their life
