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.
