DISTRIBUTION OF HOME MADE MASK
During this pandemic period wherein we are facing challenges in terms of health and finance, we have started making and distributing homemade masks as it helps preventing us from Covid-19. These have been made by women of rural areas in and around Mathura/Vrindavan. We have also involved 6 Self-Help Women Groups (SHG). We will pay them making charges by transferring the amount directly to their bank accounts so that we can provide them monetary support during this tough time.
We have started this by imparting them training and defining specifications to each SHG group.
We have distributed around 9000 masks till date to hawkers, rickshaw pullers, policemen and women manning posts at different locations of city. Everyday we will be distributing around 800-1000 masks in different markets and areas of Mathura and Vrindavan.
In the next phase by God willing we intend to make 3000 masks and distribute them in nearby villages.
