COVID initiatives in Odisha, India
- We have given more than 30,000 free masks to the women and their family members and to the school children. This is an ongoing project. Many girls and women also make some money by making these masks. We will continue making masks and distribute them to the women and their family members when they need them ($3,000).
- We have given free sanitary napkins to the women for three months.
- Our Biswas has given $68,500 to the Chief Minister’s Relief fund of Odisha. The fund is being used towards financial support to set up a 110-bed COVID wing in the Vikash Multispeciality Hospital, Bargarh, Odisha for the treatment of critical Covid patients. The total projected budget is about $137,000. Our Biswas and The Government have equally shared the cost to finish this project.
- Our Biswas has supported 110 (covid affected families) of Jagatsingpur district by giving basic groceries, sanitary napkins, and soaps. ($2,000)
