Covid Response From Guntur Province

REACHING THE PEOPLE WHO RUN OUT OF FOOD IN GUNTUR,

ANDHRA PRADESH

India has been put in lockdown to halt the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak. People of unorganized sector are the most affected when they have been told to stay indoors, but for many daily-wage earners this is not an option among the tribal colonies, orphan children and old & Destitute persons staying in huts with no proper shelter, sanitation, safety beside the railway tracks, lakes, roadsides as their house sites and other entitlements are on process with the Government.

Live their life by earning daily bread working under the landlords, mills and construction work which is the only source not to run out of hungry daily. Lockdown days are very hard to spend, though the colonies know risk of corona virus, but they can’t see their children go hungry and run out of food which is creating fear that hunger may kill them before Corona.

 

The above reason has moved Congregation of JMJ to respond to reach out 500-1000 population their situations from 26th March 2020 which is our working areas in Guntur and East Godavari of Andhra Pradesh.

We Congregation of JMJ, Guntur Province through its Social Apostolate-JMJ Social Service Society obtained special permission from the District collector, wherein we were issued COVID-19 pass for the Distribution from District Civil Supplies, Guntur District.
