INTERVENTION – SECOND PHASE

The second all-India surge of the COVID -19 pandemic has been more devastating than the first one. It has also appeared to be different from last year’s surge in several ways, increasing worries and anxiety. Hospitals are running out of beds, oxygen and basic medical facilities to treat COVID patients.

Currently, Karnataka has reported the biggest single- day spike of 34,804 new COVID-19 cases, taking the total caseload to 13.39 lakh. Bengaluru Urban alone accounted for 20,733 cases. Patients and their families have been running around for medicines, hospital beds and oxygen. Due to the lack of medical facilities and beds provided for COVID patients, many families are losing their loved ones.

The health system across India is collapsing and unable to provide treatment for COVID patients. Hospitals are charging exorbitant rates to treat patients. The sight, of ambulances queuing up outside crematoriums is unbearable.

We look forward to your support and collaboration so that we can reach out to as many people and organization as possible.

 

COVID VACCINATION CAMPAIGN

India has the world's second-largest population and over one-seventh of all the people in the world. Therefore, getting high coverage of India's population with the COVID-19 vaccine will be important in controlling the global spread of the virus.

Unfortunately, field assessment suggests many people are hesitant to take the jab as there are many myths and false concerns associated with the vaccination. United Way Bengaluru (UWBe) has taken up the challenge to get people vaccinated through this campaign that will run for about 45 days (might get extended if needed).

The Objective of the Campaign:

- Augment awareness in communities on Covid Appropriate Behaviour
- Step up Vaccination Drive and help people from remote areas get vaccinate

We have trained several staffs from UWBe, ASHA workers, Anganwadi Centre workers and other volunteers from partner organizations who are visiting remote areas and carrying out public awareness among community members. Through this campaign, door-to-door visits, community events and massive social media coverage are being done daily.The Campaign kick-started last week of April, at different remote locations in Karnataka and getting people vaccinated.
