ThodaBahut: Phase 2 Begins

A big Thank You to all Donors, Volunteers, and Office Bearers who contributed generously or worked tirelessly to make Phase I of our initiatives a resounding success. In a period of 6 weeks (between April-June, 2020) we supported 20000 Healthcare professionals and Police personnel with protective face-shields to combat the risks associated with fighting on the front-lines of the pandemic. 1100 auto-drivers also received monetary support towards monthly sustenance during the lockdown phases.

We have now started Phase 2 from October 1, 2020, which will last for about 4 weeks. In this phase of the pandemic, with the numbers of COVID-positive cases rising, we are focusing our efforts on Healthcare. We will be distributing PPE kits to Hospitals and other allied agencies who require them to protect their healthcare workers from first-hand exposure. The on-ground situation is still very serious and we urge all donors to continue to participate wholeheartedly in our program.
