WOW’s Relief Response For COVID-19

Phase 2.0
Bare Necessities Kit
The second lockdown has once again affected the community where WOW serves. A majority of them work as daily wage workers, autorickshaw drivers, painters, plumbers, electricians and so many others. Most of the women from this community work as house helps and are dependent on daily wages.

While they are receiving dry rations from the Government through the public distribution system (PDS), safety and hygiene are not a priority. So, to ensure safety and hygiene, we have designed a pack consisting of household sanitizing and cleaning products, sanitary napkins and an immunity boosting herbal drink.

CONTENTS OF THE KIT:

3 reusable face masks
1 household disinfectant – 1/2 liter
2 bath soaps
1 Kabasura kudineer pack (a herbal health drink)
2 detergent soaps
1 sanitary napkin pack
1 disposable bag

*All Kits will include awareness pamphlets on child safety and Covid 19 related information.

No. of Kits needed: 250

Cost per Kit: INR 550
Hygiene Kit
During our community interactions, we’ve found that most waste handlers perform manual collection of garbage and do not wear protective clothing while working. This workforce forms an integral part of our waste management system, putting their lives at risk to protect and serve us.

To address this need, we have designed a small personal protective equipment pack (PPE) for sanitary workers in Kilpauk (Chennai) and Veerapandi Town Panchayat (Coimbatore). Our staff at Kilpauk and Veerapandi will work with the local district government to distribute these kits.

CONTENTS OF THE KIT:

3 face masks
1 face shield
1 pair of rubber gloves
3 plastic aprons
2 alcohol based sanitizers (50ml each)
2 liquid soaps (50 ml each)
1 disposable bag

*All Kits will include pamphlets on child safety and COVID-19 related information.

No. of Kits needed: 250

Cost per Kit: INR 550

Update On WOW’s 2020 Relief Response For COVID-19

Phase 1.0

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, our rehabilitation work reprogrammed its project to meet the current and relevant needs of the communities we serve in. Our response covered not only distribution of relief kits and rations, we also disseminated awareness videos and flyers in three communities – Chennai, Nellikuppam and an urban slum in Kolkata.

Last year our awareness videos and flyers reached 2500 Individuals. The themes we highlighted were staying physically fit, mental health during the pandemic, general precautionary measures and the guidelines for the “new normal”.

We also reached 585 families, migrant workers and adolescent girls in shelter homes with our hygiene kits.

Our dry rations reached 53 families with no income, widows, single mothers, and families of daily wage earners who had lost their livelihood .

We also initiated a first of its kind vocational skill training program for housemaids in our adopted community in Kilpauk, called “Groom The Housekeeper”. We trained the first batch of 10 house helps to up-skill themselves.
