The cases of COVID-19 are surging every day worldwide and so in Harda and depending on the support from the government or kind civilians. As the second wave began, Synergy Sansthan’s field workers started reporting symptoms of COVID-19 among community members. People are living in a distant world hence, they fear the testing and the treatment also. There are fake news, misconceptions, miscommunication which are making it worse to fight COVID-19. Due to lockdown, people have fallen short on food ration too. Hospitals do not have enough beds, medical equipment, or direct reach within the community hence, people are suffering far away.
Since the inception of catastrophe COVID-19, Synergy Sansthan has provided Ration Kits for month to 2000+ families, rain shed to 1000+families, ready food for 5000 migrant workers, Mask and Sanitizers to 10000 peoples, Online Counselling, Mohalla Education classes in 40 tribal villages, financial assistance for livelihood to 100 migrants and tribals, and medical aid and care too. During the second wave, we are continuing relief work by supporting community members with direct medical aid and care to fight COVID-19 and lessen the long-term impact.
