Chennai Fights COVID-19
The onset of COVID-19, and consequent exponential spread caught everyone by surprise. The underprivileged and daily wage workers have taken the worst hit. While everyone is coping with the crisis as best as they can, we, at the Chennai Hub have been doing our part by spreading awareness about the common norms to be followed during this pandemic and raising funds to help those in need.
We have been conducting webinars, circulating posters and posting regular social media updates on the best ways to stay safe in the pandemic situation as well as government support schemes to ensure information reaches people across different spectra. This effort is expected to impact about 2 lakh people in the city. In addition, we will also be raising a first round of funds that is about 5 lakhs. The proceeds of these funds will be fully contributed to NGOs that are working to put people at ease during this situation.
