Selvaraj, our direct local support says: “Luckily at the moment there are no cases from our tribal villages. We have visited all the villages and distributed mask and soap. People are happy that we are distributing to them.So far no people are affected and we informed all the people, SHG members and community health workers to ensure that people should use mask when they come out from home.”
With hygiene games there comes also a lot of positive energy and joy into the villages
Besides the obvious awareness training sessions and protective measurements that take place as in many parts in the world the team from KKID Selvaraj and Shibu also bring some good moments to the village people, especially to the children. But for sure also to the parents and the village community.

The overall situation so far in our project area
There are already more than 7 million corona cases in India. So that people can better protect themselves against the virus, our local partner NGO team (KKID) distributed a total of more than 14,000 face masks and more than 8,600 soaps to nearly children and adults in 16 villages in Tamil Nadu (South India). The masks and soaps were made by women’s support groups. Women who in the past years had participated in our hygiene and soap production training sessions… The Making More Health initiative finances and engage actively with the project and enables women to earn money in the current situation.
And thanks, Selvaraj and Shibu for your engagement! Myself, all my colleagues and friends who know you are very grateful for what you are doing. We all miss you! ❤️
