About the Campaign

The Rayerbazar slum area where Spreeha runs its Journey of Hope project has been hit hard due to the city wide lock down as part of the Covid-19 response. As a result, daily wage earners are out of job and struggling to arrange basic necessities during this time. Spreeha is organizing a relief effort and providing emergency food, health, and hygiene products to the families in the Rayerbazar community. Spreeha is currently running the following programs in the Rayerbazar slum community as part of the Covid-19 response:

  1. Food supply:
    Most of the underprivileged people depends on daily income, as a result home quarantine is not possible. Food supply for few days can mitigate this challenge and can limit the chance of community transmission of corona virus. This package contains the following:
    – Rice 5kg
    – Potato 2kg
    – Dal 1kg
    – Oil 1L
  2. Hygiene materials:
    Good hygiene practice and hand washing can prevent corona virus transmission. Due to current financial constrain underprivileged people are ignoring the importance of hygiene and as a result risk of contamination is getting higher. This package contains the following:
    – Soap 1
    – Washing powder 1/2kg
  3. Essential drugs:
    Currently flu like symptoms cold, cough and fever are at highest pick and common drugs supply can reduce people`s movement. This package contains the following:
    – Anti-fever medicine 20 tablets
    – Anti-cold medicine 10 tablets
    – Vitamin C supplement 20 tablets
  4. Door to door awareness and counselling:
    Community worker will create awareness about what is corona virus, how to prevent it, what to do if you have flu like symptoms and encourage for online doctor consultation rather than go to healthcare center.
  5. Online Doctor helpline:
    A pool of Doctors will provide free consultation upon maternal & child health, primary healthcare and counseling for COVID-19.
