COVID AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
Location : Panighata TG, GIRMIT LINE, Darjeeling district, West Bengal,INDIA
Initiated and Organised by AICUF Reunited, W.B.
In Collaboration with Adivasi Vikas Aur Dhumkuriya Kendra, Sishujhumra.
The second wave of Covid-19 in India is creating havoc across the country, with the cases skyrocketing and sadly high death toll. As the virus has started making inroads into rural and tribal areas, the situation is very grim. The people in the tea gardens and villages in North Bengal particularly in Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri and Alipurduar districts in West Bengal, are exposed to multiple forms of vulnerabilities. They earn very less with daily wages of Rs. 202.00 and around 3-4 dependent family members. In case of falling sick, they are not in a condition to get even basic treatment and medicine. The local hospitals and medical centres are distantly located and not adequately equipped to deal with the pandemic. At the same time there are number of doubts, fears and stigma about COVID-19 and its Vaccination Process among the locals.
Our Plan of Action
Step 1 : TRAINING Local Volunteers
Step 2: Spread AWARENESS
Step 3 : HEALTH Check up
Step 4 : Distribute MEDICAL equipment .
Step 5: VACCINATION Drive
Step 6: FOLLOW UP
TOTAL BUDGET : Rs. 506440
We have already trained local Volunteers and spread awareness in the area though posters and distribution of soap, sanitizers and masks.
Out of Rs.506440,I am trying to raise at least Rs.50000 for the next plan of action.
We cannot do this on our own, we need your help. Small steps in the right direction and a helping hand, can turn out to be the biggest step for someone else’s life.
