MAJOR ROLE PLAY IN COVID-19 BY ( C.A.R.D)
The government's lockdown as a concern for the lives of the people, the lockdown has caused great loss to the families who have a hand in the stomach. On this occasion, free rice and cheap wheat are being provided by the government through cheap grain shops. However, in a situation where it is not possible to buy other cooking utensils from the grocery store, the CARD surveyed the families in Jalna city and rural areas who do not have ration cards and even the poorest and wage earning families who are in dire need of groceries. By selecting 500 such needy families, they responded to the call for CARD burning only on mobile conversations and provided groceries of necessities to 500 families. Each kit contains groceries costing Rs.600/- and contains 5 Kg Wheat floor, 1 liter oil, 1Kg dal, 100 grams spices, 100 grams turmeric powder, 1 kg salt, 1 kg sugar, 100 g tea leaves, 1 kg pohe soap, sanitizer, 1Kg detergent powder etc. Because of this, if someone comes out of the house for 15 days, then there will be no victim of corona infection. Besides, it is a risk that we prepare food and distribute it every day. There is no denying that you can become corona positive if you accidentally come in contact with an infected person.In addition, the government has started a lockdown. So the items are given. To the 200 police have been provided with safety equipment including N95 masks, face shields, sanitizers, gloves, surgery masks by UPL Advanta Seeds Company at a cost of Rs 400 while free meals for 1300 migrants have been provided by Coast FES
