Nagpur: Care India, an NGO running projects on water conservation and women’s development in Wardha and Yavatmal districts of the Vidarbha region carried out an awareness drive among the rural populace on Covid-19 management. Women used methods like rangoli and poster making to spread awareness in the villages.

The NGO has been taking up women-centric activities for quite some time. These include sensitizing the women towards the overall conditions and training them to take decisions in day-to-day affairs. Now, a message of coronavirus prevention is being spread through the women trained by the NGO too, said Nitin Khadse, a Care India worker.

They were taught about Covid distancing, use of masks and maintaining cleanliness to prevent the spread of disease, he said. The programme was conducted by field coordinator of Care India, Dyaneshwar Borkar. The slogan ‘Stay home and stay safe’ was given to the trainees. Apart from creating awareness, certain misconceptions related to Covid-19 spread were also dispelled, said a note by Care India. Others who were part of the initiative included Mahendra Kopade and Priti Chikaram.
