Hello everyone,Project Sashakt is an initiative launched by Tribhuvandas Foundation and a group of like-minded professionals; and aims to establish a COVID-19 surveillance system for rural areas located around Anand, Gujarat. This project intends to equip Tribhuvandas Foundation’s village health volunteers with COVID-19 kits consisting of necessary resources such as N-95 masks, hand sanitizers, pulse oximeters, and digital infrared thermometers.
The volunteers typically deliver maternal and child health-related programs in rural areas of Anand, Kheda, and Mahisagar districts, but their skills will now be expanded to surveil villages for COVID-19 cases and provide timely care and guidance to individuals with COVID-19 symptoms. We are currently helping 5 villages namely Raipura, Sokhda, Neja, Islampura, and Navagam vanta and need 25 kits that will last for 6 months.
All proceeds will go towards buying the appropriate equipment and providing honorariums to the volunteers. The team of Project Sashakt will continue to update you on our initiative and the impact it is making. A breakdown of kit and program costs is provided in the image attached. Any amount is appreciated!
