Katakhali Swapnopuron Welfare Society (KSWS) has been working in Hingalganj and Hasnabad area of Sunderbans in North 24 Parganas over last 8 years.
During this period of working, the organization has established a meaningful relationship in the communities. The organization has been working with communities closely and supporting them in various ways.
The crisis situation amid the COVID-19 virus has affected quite a lot of people in the country. This has resulted in sudden lockdown across the country. The people living in Hinglaganj and adjoining areas were not at all ready for such a situation. The majority of them could not manage to arrange enough ration to run their family.
Since the majority of these families are daily wage earners, that became another problem for them to procure daily needs. The labourers at the brickfield also could not go back to their native places owing to this lockdown and are facing acute crises of daily needs.
