A short video narrating the story of the life of people in Anupshahar during COVID-19.
What Are We Doing
On April 8TH 2020 the U.P. government requested the help of PPES to set up a quarantine centre to house 250 individuals. In response, we have opened up our campus to house them. The local police, administration, and government medical team are on site.
We have established a hotline service, which is a toll-free number available for consultation on issues related to problems arising due to the lockdown. We have ten college graduates of PPES managing this hotline service.
We have delivered food and hygiene kits and dry rations to the neediest families who are most severely impacted by the lock down and who have lost their livelihoods.
PPES’s economic empowerment unit; I Village is producing face-masks for the local authorities and population. This is generating employment for 200 women from Anupshahar.
We are working with our self-help group women during the current phase, identifying those most in need.
We are providing regular SMS service, disseminating up-to-date and relevant information. This has become a very important tool for awareness of COVID- 19.
We continue our Telemedical consultations at the Prana Health centre as needed.
We are reaching out to over 120 villages surrounding Anupshahar and we are delivering dry rations and supplies to those families identified by the community development team as the hardest hit by COVID-19.
