Our teams need more time to mobilize the target funds. Most team members are currently engaged in groundwork, and so we are unable to give much time to raise funds.

Increased time may help raise more resources. Please keep supporting, we will keep you posted with updates!

ONGC supported Drug De-addiction and Counselling Center, Indian Army campus, Baramulla - How Covid-19 has affected mental, emotional & physical health...and the fight back through ONGC CSR.
One of the most immediate effects the lockdown had on people was their mental health. The isolation and fear in this lockdown era is driving an escalating nervousness among many people and not just those with pre-existing conditions. Keeping this in mind, our mental health counselor in Chinar, Ms Arifa Aslam and her team started online counselling/phone counselling people. Ms Arifa says, “We counsellors are more concerned about those grappling with substance abuse as our drug de-addiction centre is not accessible right now. The situation is tough for children who are either mute spectators or directly subjected to domestic violence. Thus, we have started our online counselling session from 1st April and are still helping people through it.” Ms Arifa’s aim is to let people know they aren’t alone in the way they are feeling right now and help them in finding ways to cope up with the emotions. She explains, “The  anxiety ,depression, obsessive compulsive disorder cases of some people who were treated from our centre earlier got relapsed during this lockdown period and some started indulging in substance abuse too. One of my patients while describing his struggle to take care of his kids, parents and work, couldn't stop crying. Patients with anxiety are struggling with negative emotions and some even with nauseous and breathing problems. Watching the news makes these people even more hopeless.” Ms Arifa and her team is helping these people through Motivational Enhancement therapy. It involves helping patients focus on the things that they can control and become more grounded. They must follow guidelines to reduce chance of being exposed/passing through the virus. Exercises like walking, yoga, meditation, dancing and listening to songs is also helpful for people with anxiety.
Another method they use is Cognitive behavior therapy. Ms Arifa says, “Using catharsis i.e penning down each and everything that comes in their mind or maintaining their personal diary helps in calming down the anxiety and negative emotions. Staying busy in reading or other hobbies is also a great way.  Lots of encouragement and empathy has worked for these patients. We are constantly giving them hope that this will end soon and we will start our lives again the way we were living before this pandemic.”
She is encouraging people to talk about these issues without any shame or hesitation and providing them help through texts, videos, calls to keep in mind the social distancing rules.
Apart from this, the team is also making people aware about these issues and asking them to be kind with each other and fight this with a feeling of togetherness.
The Center is fully supported by ONGC and we are grateful for their support. It is housed within army campus in Baramulla as part of its outreach to assist local Kashmiri communities and strengthen solidarity. We are reaching out to augment/add to ongoing work as requirement is tremendous to support Indian Army.
