Guria has strived to intervene in various sectors through its innovative holistic end-to-end strategy to achieve its primary goal of rescuing women and achieving a place safe for women.
SUPPORT AMIDST COVID-19 PANDEMIC – GROCERY, CREMATION, MEDICINE, VACCINATION – One major consequence of the pandemic has been an increase in human trafficking as the associated lockdowns, travel restrictions, rising unemployment and hunger has greatly increased the vulnerability of the marginalized population (especially women and children) already living in precarious situations. Guria India, in order to supplement the government efforts provided grocery kits to nearly 21010 families which thereby has supported almost 2268708 meals amidst COVID-19 pandemic in Ghazipur, Mau, Azamgarh, Varanasi, Chandauli and Mirzapur districts along with red-light areas of Varanasi and Mau districts of Uttar Pradesh state. We also assisted in cremation of dead bodies and distributed government prescribed COVID-19 medicine kits. In addition to this we assisted the government COVID-19 vaccination program in 13 Community Health Centres (CHCs) in 13 Blocks of 4 districts of eastern Uttar Pradesh. Apart from vaccination at the CHCs, we assisted in organizing around 23439 vaccination camps in rural villages and supported in approximately 2258029 persons being vaccinated by the govt. We also provided automatic sanitizer dispensers, hub-cutters, vaccine carriers, tents with tables/chairs, public announcement systems, PPE kits, vaccinators, data entry operators, organizers, Wi-Fi modems, mobile phones, stationery, IEC materials, lunch packets, vehicles to all the 13 Govt. Hospitals (CHCs) in 4 districts of Uttar Pradesh state. Each CHC was provided with two teams of six persons (2 vaccinators, 2 Organizers, 2 data entry operators) – one mobile team for organizing rural camps (including health sub-centres) and one stationed at the CHC. Guria India especially thanks the team members who worked tirelessly despite some of us contracting the coronavirus ourselves.
