The COVID-19 pandemic caused the most distress to the poor and disadvantaged including migrant laborers, tribal families, persons with disabilities and other marginalized groups. Our team of volunteers continue to work on COVID-19 response activities.
During the first wave of COVID 19 crisis:
Holy Cross Organization has distributed cooked food and Dry ration kits to return migrants and disadvantaged families.
Distributed education materials, snacks & sanitary napkins to young girls for engage them in education activities at their home during the lockdown period.
During the second wave of COVID 19 crisis:
Holy Cross Organization continuous awareness generation on hand wash, personal hygiene, symptoms of COVID-19, proper usage of masks, social distancing etc. Providing direct services that include distribution of food rations to needy families and distribution of masks and sanitizer bottles to front line workers as well as disadvantaged groups.
Special focus on Awareness on COVID vaccination:
To win the war against COVID-19, we have to ensure that everyone who is eligible gets vaccinated. Many people are still not taking the vaccine as there has been a lot of misinformation surrounding the vaccines and their development.
To raise awareness among the indigenous people in our target villages and debunk the myths related to vaccinations, Holy Cross Organization is organizing the COVID 19 Vaccination Awareness Campaigns in tribal villages.
