As the second wave of COVID-19 creates a severe humanitarian crisis, we are reaching out to our communities in rural and tribal areas with awareness messages and support to take adequate precautions, stay safe and cope with the pandemic. Many of these communities are remote, lack access to mobile, television or other devices, and internet connectivity. Gram Vikas mobile vans with mounted speakers travel through these habitations playing pre-recorded audio messages on measures to prevent COVID-19. The messages inform and reinforce the importance of wearing masks, maintaining physical distance and following proper hand washing practices. As of 20 May, our vans have travelled across 628 habitations in 4 districts to keep our communities safe and prevent the spread of the virus.
