In Jodhpur, CHI’s partner UJAS works with hundreds of refugee families who have fled
religious extremism in Pakistan only to meet further challenges in India. Today, the needs of this impoverished community have become more urgent than ever as they face the threat of COVID-19.
Sewing Masks For The Community:
Enterprising female residents are learning how to sew masks, and have already supplied 1,500 to a private hospital for elderly and sick patients, and healthcare workers, all of whom are victims to a severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Access To Clean Water & Hand-Washing Units:
Without access to clean water and soap, members of the community are particularly vulnerable to infection. CHI is setting up hand-washing stations, giving out soaps and sanitizers, and educating the community on disease prevention.
Making At-Home Learning Possible:
Resident children lack access to formal education, so we are providing downloadable remote learning resources like videos and programs designed by our coaches and teachers.
Protecting A Vulnerable Community’s Health:
CHI is providing resident children with vitamins and nutritious meals. We are also bringing a medical doctor into the community to treat residents and supply critical medicines.
