With the rapid spread of COVID-19 vulnerable families were at risk because they could not afford COVID protection gear, neither could they spend on medicines.
We provided vulnerable families with access to hygiene kits consisting of face masks, gloves, sanitizers, soaps as well home isolation care medical kits consisting of paracetamols, nutritional supplements, thermometers and oximeters.
We live in a remote
village and couldn’t
access many face
masks and sanitisers.
CIF helped us
access these with ease.
We work in Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka.
Ms. Indira (name changed) from Karnataka was worried
when two of her family members tested COVID positive.
“The doctors told us that they need to isolate themselves
at home but we did not know how we would afford the home
care. We were scared.”, she said. “Then through CIF, we
recieved some paracetamol tablets, nutritional supplements,
antiseptic, sanitisers and others. We were also instructed on
how to carry out home based COVID care”.
Within a period of two weeks, both the family members
recovered from COVID and Ms. Indira expressed her
gratitude to the team.
