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),

  • Spreading awareness among local populations through social media (FB, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube etc), and with the help of our International Associates, to avoid the spread of Covid-19 and proper care of the patients.
  • Providing basic support materials to marginalized and vulnerable people in India, for surviving extended lockdowns and restrictions on services. These include food kits, sanitation kits, face-masks and basic first-aid/medical kits.
  • Preparing homemade cloth-based face masks through home-based tailors who can provide services on voluntary/nominal charges basis. These masks would provide basic protection against spread of corona virus and other respiratory diseases to poor families as well as essential service provider workers like food vendors, police personnel, cleaners etc.
  • Mobilizing our skilled students trained in Healthcare courses like General Duty Assistant/Home Health Aide at our PMKK/PMKVY centres, to be ready as Reserved Medical Staff(RMS), to provide support as needed to Govt hospitals/medical centres, in collaboration with respective state’s health department.
