Medical & Ration Aid to underprivileged families of Rural Rajasthan

BACKGROUND

KOTA COVID AID is a youth collective started in April'21 with an aim to verify the availability of necessary medical aid for treating COVID and share that information with the beneficiaries. Over time we identified that the second wave has severely started to impact underprivileged communities in and around the city. On a daily basis cases in rural areas are going unidentified and untreated due to lack of awareness and required health infrastructure. Seeing this, we started a fundraising campaign on Milaap to support unprivileged families with medical and ration aid.

PHASE 1 UPDATE: We successfully completed the first phase of this campaign by collecting Rs 80,000 and providing the resources to 50 families & 6 Anganwadis in Sarola, Dabar & Moti Kuan villages of Sarola Gram Panchayat, Rajasthan in collaboration with Preeti Singh Jhala (Sarpanch of Gram Panchayat Sarola),

PHASE 2 UPDATE: We successfully completed the second phase of this campaign by providing the resources to 72 families & 10 ASHA workers in 5 villages Dungarja, Nimoda, Kanwarpura, Ummedpura & Kacholiya in Kota District in collaboration with Sarpanch & Anganwadis.

PHASE 3 UPDATE: With your support aid has been provided to 108 families & 4 ASHA workers in Jagpura, Kasar, Alaniya & Kishanpura Takiya villages. Our heartfelt gratitude to all the donors & supporters.

What are we doing? 
After speaking to the local officials and medical professionals we decided to help the underprivileged families by providing them with basic medical aid kit, dry ration and additionally handing them a booklet (in native language) which consists of the necessary precautions, list of emergency numbers & home remedies suggested by Ministry of Ayush, Government of India.

Each Medicine Kit include:
1. N95 Masks (4 masks each family)
2. 60ml bottle of Sanitizer (Qty- 1)
3. 10 tablets of each medicine:
Paracetamol (500mg), Vitamin C (500mg), Vitamin B complex with B12, Zinc (50mg) - as per the home isolation guidelines released by the central government.
4. Booklet in native language with instructions & basic information on covid in order to create awareness.
5. One Thermometer for each family.
6. 15 Sanitary Napkins for each family. (Courtesy: Safe N' Happy periods team)

We are also giving medical aid kits to Anganwadi & ASHA workers to ensure door to door scanning. In the first phase, we covered 6 Anganwadi & ASHA workers.

1. N-95 Masks - 2
