Covid 19 has drastically affected the lives and livelihood of our people.  While sanitizing hands regularly, wearing masks and social distancing has become a part of our lifestyle , Arumbugal trust realized the importance of spreading this awareness among the rural women.  As a part of our awareness campaign, we set up a mask production unit with the help of our women self help group members.  Ten thousand cotton cloth eco friendly masks were produced and distributed free of cost among people living in the rural areas of Tirunelveli district.  Apart from this activity, we also conducted awareness programmes on the theme “COVID 19 PREVENTION AND CARE”. One hundred awareness programmes were conducted all over the Tirunelveli district.  Moreover, we organized six campus to distribute basic food and hygiene products for the people whose livelihood was extremely affected by covid19.  Over five hundred people benefitted out of these campus.  Out of the six campus, three campus were conducted to distribute basic necessities to the Kaani tribal communities living in the Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve region.  We are on the progress of planning and implementing of more essential activities to deal with this global pandemic.
