SKY TRUST is a student based organisation established in 2017 purely based on social work, capacity building of people in general and youth in particular. Our main focus areas are education, youth development, environment, women empowerment, health hygiene and relief and rehabilitation.
As Covid-19 pandemic has caused havoc around the world. We have found poor people are facing more problems due to pandemic. We at JK Sky trust are doing our bit. Making people aware regarding the prevention to control the spread of Covid-19 and distributing emergency food kits to poor in 5 districts of Kashmir. Under EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROGRAMME launched in March 2020 food kits provided to more than 1500 artisan, widow and poor families. One time cash assistance provided to 12 migrant labour families. Fumigation/sanitization drives at hospitals, roads, public places, mosques and police stations to control the spread of novel corona virus. We also distributed masks and sanitizers among poor families and at public places. Posters also pasted and distributed at public places. Awareness on menstrual hygiene practices given and reusable sanitary napkins distributed among 700 poor menstruating rural women.
We have found poor families are unable to make both ends meet. we are receiving requests for ration kits on daily basis from poor migrant labour families and drivers.Drivers used to run vehicles (public transport). Because of lack of funds we are not able to help them.
Funds raised will be used to purchase dry ration items and distributed among driver poor migrant labour and widow families.
