Chudar COVID-19 Relief Update #1

As you all are aware that the repercussions of COVID -19 lock-down has tremendously affected the day to day lives of millions across the world, more so for the most economically vulnerable and marginalized people in our society, especially those who are elderly and depend on daily wages or have just one earning member in their family.

Chudar as part of its relief work has identified such families in the community we work in with the help of our tutors and local volunteers, across Chennai. We first started the relief process in the slum areas where our after-school centres were functioning until the lock-down and have been able to provide with the daily necessities of food and sanitary supplies through a decentralized model of limited movement and contact of our volunteers, adhering to all the safety norms issued by the Government.

Daily supplies have been sent to around 45 families in the slum areas of Mylapore, Mandaveli, Triplicane, Saidapet, Guindy, Anakaputtur as well as in the nearby districts like Kanchipuram and Thiruvannamalai.

N95 masks have also been sent to doctors and health workers in a Government Hospital to meet their urgent requirements until their supplies had arrived.
