COVID-19 Relief - Combating the pandemic

In the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, people all over the country have been massively affected in different ways (financially, mentally, physically). The worst hit have been the ones who were already in need even before the pandemic struck. Another huge section has been mentally affected and mental health problems such as depression, anxiety etc. have come across as rising. 

Pragyata Foundation helped thousands of people during Covid-19 in many ways. In accordance with the government’s suggestion to solve the crisis, we conducted food distribution drives on a regular basis in different areas of Delhi, Gurugram, Hisar, Etawah and Baghpat during lockdown - both cooked and grocery kits while maintaining social distancing. Thousands of masks, sanitizers and soaps were distributed at different locations of Gurugram, Delhi, Jharkhand and U.P. We helped people in downloading the aarogya Setu app and educated them about its features.  Around 500 people downloaded the app in different areas of Delhi NCR, U.P., Haryana and Jharkhand. Due to being confined within their homes, there have been increasing cases of depression and other mental health issues among people of all age groups. Keeping this in mind, we have launched a free helpline number and our trustee member Dr. Sandeep Kumar, Clinical Psychologist conducted free counselling sessions & workshops to help people with their mental health during COVID-19 in different parts of India.

We have taken several efforts and initiatives for combating the situation:

  • We have been providing food to the poor, elderly, children, migrant workers, homeless, needy and people without jobs by establishing community kitchens and regular food distribution camps.
  • Masks, Sanitizers and Soaps distribution
  • Mental Health awareness through Counselling, Workshops and Webinars and also launched a free Helpline number
  • making public aware through creative means, about keeping proper physical distance, and taking care about all other precautions especially where people are gathering frequently like Banks, ATMs, market places, food camps, night shelters, outside factories etc
  • making people aware about Aarogya Setu App and helping them download it and using its features, by our team members
