COVID - 19 Stay@Home Kit
We are living in uncertain times. The panic and destruction caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the last 2 months has been unprecedented in human history in terms of its speed and scale of deaths. Despite having the best health facilities, all western countries are struggling to contain this deadly virus and the count of infected people is increasing exponentially each day. This has raised a spectre of a horrifying future for the rest of the world, especially Africa and Asian countries including India, who lack even basic healthcare services for most of their populations.
Sewa International appeals to all its supporters world-wide to come forward and help provide services to the most vulnerable of the population who have no means to fight the global pandemic, COVID-19. Marginalized communities, especially engaged in informal economy, all across India are most vulnerable now, feeling the brunt of lockdown leading to lost wages/jobs, eviction from rented homes, no money to buy essentials, lack of medical assistance, all pointing to a grim future for them.
With your support of as small as Rs. 1000, we would be able to secure one vulnerable family during the lockdown situation. Our specially designed COVID-19 Stay@Home Kit includes awareness material, dry ration like rice, atta, sugar etc., sanitizer, soap, reusable face-masks and basic first-aid/medical kits.
Following 4-pronged strategy is being proposed (to be updated as per the developing situation with the advance of Covid-19),

Distributing Food by Sewa Volunteers
Volunteers of Sewa International distributed food materials like atta, rice, potatoes, fruit juices, etc. for the migrants and their families, who were from Mahoba, UP, staying around Ashok Nagar area in Delhi. These landless migrants from UP are dependent on odd jobs/labour work for their daily wages.
On 28th of March 2020, a team of Sewa volunteers led by Smt. Subhadra, prepared, and distributed food to daily wage workers. The food was prepared by the team in the kitchen of a local eatery (closed for lockdown) with all safety measures and then distributed.
The details of the food distribution activity are as follows:
