Covid-19 Relief and Response

 As a result of the nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19, a large number of migrants, daily wage earners and their families are struggling without work or food. PRASAD is supporting them in the following ways:

  • Distribution of ration bags, which include rice, lentils, cooking oil, wheat flour, onions, potatoes, turmeric powder, chilli powder and soap to last a family three weeks
  • Mask production by women in self help groups, which helps not just the community but also generates income for them 
  • Mask distribution to communities residing in remote hamlets
  • Provision of health services at Prasad’s Anukampa Health Center, working in tandem with the government
  • Distribution of medical equipment to government hospitals that are treating patients affected by covid-19
