Covid-19 food distribution

Covid-19 food distribution

One of the biggest pedimic that shook entire world was COVID-19. The virus has effected millions and lead to death of thousands. The number is increasing every day and the fear is that it would be one of the biggest epidemic of whole time. Jharkhand Swabhiman with its limited resources tried best to reach the person in need of food during lockdown. We started with distribution of dry ration to the daily workers. About 50 families were reached. Jharkhand Swabhiman also made arrangements at its office for cooked food for the people who did not have place to stay. Later as we were short of funds we started linking the needy to the respective district administrations. We have contacted approx 500 individuals who were either in need of food or were stuck at a place and wanted to return back to their home town. Mr. Nirmal Yadav from Chattisgarh is one of such whose parents had come for a marriage ceremony at East Singhbhum district and were stuck for over 2 months. When Mr. Yadav contacted us we informed the local district administration ho assisted them along with other 40 people to return back to Chattisgarh. Same with a NGO based in Madhya Pradesh that contacted us for people stuck in Deoghar. Mr. Sharma representative of that NGO has thanked Jharkhand Swabhiman for immediate action. The students of National Law University (NLU, Gujarat) contacted us with a list of approx 300 migrants who had returned back to Jharkhand but are in need of food. The team of Jharkhand Swabhiman contacted each one of them and extend the possible assistance. We had also provided the municipal workers working in the area where our office is located with drinking waters, soft drinks and cookies in order to appreciate their work as Corona Warriors. Assisting people of Babupur Panchayat in Hiranpur Panchayat of Pakur district in downloading AarogyaSetu App was a big task as we had to first make them understand the importance of having this app. Once people were convinced then only they downloaded the app. The Mukhiya of Babupur Panchayat was a big help in commutating with the locals and making them realise the importance of this app. Our Representative Mr. Jantu Soren had made over 100 people download this app. As the epidemic is not over we are continuing our efforts to reach all the needy. We would like to thank our donors who made it easy for us to extend assistance to needy with dry ration and cooked food.
