The rapid spread of COVID-19 and subsequent lockdown declared by the Government have made our member households, who are mostly small and marginal rain-fed farmers, and landless labourers to remain in their homes. All of them are dependent on farm labour for eking out their living. No doubt, the current COVID-19 Pandemic has posed a serious threat to the lives and livelihoods of our resource-poor farmers in many ways. We work hand-in-hand with our member households to understand their miseries and find ways and means to alleviate their sufferings.
Building on our core competency of promoting local health traditions and the strength of community based organisations promoted by us over the last three decades, our health workers and volunteers have started working with the communities without violating the rules of lockdown and prevention protocols.
We have identified and started working on a set of preventive and promotive strategies to prepare our communities for facing the present and future healthcare threats.
