Covid-19 Response

In Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Uttarakhand, Naman Seva Samiti responded to Covid-19 emergency by providing Dry Ration kits, Masks, Soaps and Sanitiser while creating awareness about Social Distancing and Personal Hygiene. 

Naman now is aiming to address the loss of livelihood by developing local and sustainable livelihood opportunities for rural poor especially migrant population which has returned to villages due to the pandemic. 

Dry Ration

As an emergency measure, provision of dry food packets was ensured for persons with disabilities, and other marginalised communities. 

With Dry Ration, soap and sanitiser was also provided to ensure hygiene as most are forced to live in unhygienic conditions.

Face Masks

SHG members were remunerated for standing up at a time of emergency which also provided them financial support as members of SHGs themselves are from marginalised communities.
