The spread of Covid-19 has been very rapid in this second wave and is widely increasing in villages of southern Rajasthan. The infection has reached to tribal communities residing in scattered settlements in remote areas. Seva Mandir is responding to this emergency in villages of Udaipur and Rajsamand districts. The relief and awareness activities are implemented in close coordination with the panchayats and local administration. Community leaders engaged with Seva Mandir and our staff are helping in reaching out to needy communities.

As with all crises, those living in poverty are disproportionately affected. Access to vital supplies such as food and sanitation materials is becoming increasingly difficult.

To relieve the situation, Seva Mandir is assisting the government in delivering food and sanitation kits , building capacities at the grassroot for home isolation and facilitating referral to government hospitals to families most in need. 

 

But we can only do so with your help.

 

Your support can ensure those who live in poverty have the food and hygiene materials they need to feed their families and survive this crisis.


Our Relief Efforts- 2021

We are focussing on following five strategies to respond to the second wave of Covid-19 :

1.Home isolation care -Sanitation kits with education material are provided to families with members infected by Covid-19. Seva Mandir has started home isolation care in 6 blocks of Udaipur district. The kit includes 12 masks, soap, detergent, sanitiser and education material for the family.

A group of volunteers and government frontline workers identified from villages, equipped with safety gears, are trained on home care and monitoring. The volunteers have oximeters, thermometers and reference guide. They visit or keep in touch on phone with home isolated families every day

2. Ration and Sanitation Kits- Ration kits are being provided to vulnerable families and are not able to arrange for foods. The kits include basic food ingredients, soap and detergent for 15 days for a family of 5 members. Families are also provided 3-layer masks.

3. Safety Kits to volunteers and para workers Material distribution and information dissemination are undertaken by our staff and community workers and leaders from villages volunteering for the task. Volunteers are provided with safety gears of 4 masks, face shield and sanitisers to remain safe while working in field.

4. AwarenessSeva Mandir began the awareness drive through social media in first week of April. Over the first 6 weeks, 18 posts consisting of posters, audio & video messages of community leaders, and animation messages have been prepared in Hindi covering different components. The posts are reaching out to about 2.3 lac people in 1121+ villages. A Vehicle Audio Awareness Campaign has been started to disseminate messages in villages to increase the outreach.

5. Covid Care CentersAccess to health facilities and timely treatment is critical for patients with low oxygen level and other complications. Seva Mandir is working with the block administration of Jhadol, Rishabhdev and Kherwara to arrange oxygen concentrators, electricity backup and other needs at Covid Care Centres being set-up by the government.

 

Our Relief Efforts- 2020

We provided families in rural, tribal and urban slum communities with vital relief packs to ensure they can survive this crisis.

Sanitation kits containing soap and detergent were distributed. Each kits was enough for a family of 5 to last 2 weeks. Furthermore, sanitary pads have been provided to women and girls, ensuring that they have quality and hygienic material to protect themselves from infection and to provide comfort. 

Food kits containing items locally used were distributed to the neediest families in hard-to-reach regions of our work area. This was conducted alongside the government's own relief efforts. Each food kits was enough to last a family of 5 for 2 weeks.

Agricultural storage kits were also distributed. These kits gave farmers the ability to store greater quantities of grain, giving them better food security.

The kits were distributed by our field team. We provided each distributor with their own basic personal protective equipment, which included masks, hair nets and gloves. They were trained and given advisories to ensure they were safe and followed social distancing during their work.
