The unexpected rise in COVID-19 cases in Patna has made a tremendous impact on the informal sector. Patna has been reporting over 2500 cases per day and hospitals in Patna are running out of beds and oxygen cylinders as they are not equipped to tend to so many patients at once. They are forced to turn away COVID-19 patients. The Annapurna Campaign is an effort to help the families from slum communities, survive and protect themselves during initial (mild) corona. Through our campaign, we are raising money to provide primary medicines/treatment and dry nutritional food items to boost immunity of the families of our students.

Our children belong to the most marginalized sections of society. Their parents work as daily wage earners in various occupations such as construction workers, manual labors, rickshaw pullers, and house helps. Due to the rapid spread of the virus and partial lock-down, most of them have lost their jobs. They are struggling to meet their daily needs. These families are not aware about the primary treatment of corona and lack awareness regarding COVID-19.

Diksha Foundation seeks to run this initiative until the graph of cases take downward direction, and the challenges arising out of this situation for the communities are entirely lifted.

Through Aushadhi-Annapurna Campaign last year Diksha had provided 950 kits in Patna and Nalanda districts with dry rations. This year, we are planning to provide primary treatment to mild covid patients with nutritional food items including tele-guidance with COVID-19 related guidance. The kit includes all the necessary items required to sustain a family for the crucial week.

The funds will be supporting 500 families in Phase I.
