NGOs across the world put in a lot of effort to launch a number of initiatives to provide relief as the
COVID-19 pandemic turned lives upside down. These initiatives, undertaken alongside their regular
work towards the development and progress of society as a whole, made quite the difference during
those trying times. Even as the government of India left no stone unturned to combat the situation,
several NGOs took up the task to help expand the reach of the efforts, offering resources through
their extensive networks and large volunteer bases spread across the country.
Narayan Seva Sansthan launched a number of campaigns to not only help fight coronavirus but also
to provide aid to those in need. Within the first week of the COVID-19 outbreak in India, we, at
Narayan Seva Sansthan, had an initiative in place to ensure that the underprivileged sections of
society were provided basic necessities, in the form of food, medicines, protective gear. We also
assisted government authorities in spreading awareness about the virus, its harmful effects, and the
various steps people could take to prevent the spread of the infection.
As more and more migrant workers began moving back home because of the lack of daily wages,
Narayan Seva Sansthan provided them meals and ration kits as a measure to help them survive the
arduous journey. Several efforts were made to develop and implement various measures for the
In a country like India, voluntary support offered at the right time can go a long way in helping bridge
the gap between the government and those in need. It makes it easier to identify the needs of the
community, which can then be highlighted in front of the authorities. It can also help provide basic
support and services to the people until the authorities are able to reach them. This was our focus at
Narayan Seva Sansthan as our entire team worked to the best of our abilities from the very start of
the pandemic, and even today, we battle on!
Working for coronavirus relief, our NGO implemented several measures and initiatives, including:
Saathi Haath Batana
Under our campaign, ‘Saathi Haath Batana’, we provided meals, oxygen cylinders, medicines,
ambulance service, and isolation centres for people seeking aid, especially those who came from
economically weak backgrounds. All of these services are being offered across the country, free of
charge. Besides, we offer a free sanitisation facility for those who have recovered from the virus and
want to get their homes sanitised. We also announced a dedicated COVID-19 helpline number that
people can call for aid.
Other Steps Taken
Apart from working for Coronavirus patients, our NGO also organised a number of awareness
campaigns to make people understand the importance of sanitisation, proper safety gear, immunity
supplements, vaccines, and everything else that can help protect them, and their families, against
To provide aid to people who needed it most during these dire times, the specially-abled students at
our schools and skill development centres also took part in our initiatives. They made masks and PPE
kits that were distributed amongst the underprivileged, and helped in sanitising private and public
facilities, running awareness campaigns, and more, all to ensure safety and wellbeing for everyone.

they could not afford their house rent. Apart from meals, we also provided free of cost ration kits

2. Distributing masks and medicines
Masks and sanitisers are basic yet very important safety measures that can go a long way in
protecting people from coronavirus. However, there are still many people who are unable to buy
even these. That is why Narayan Seva Sansthan, with assistance from our specially-abled students
made and distributed masks and PPE kits to the underprivileged, free of cost. We also made
sanitisers and medicines available for people who needed them.
Dedicatedly working for coronavirus relief, our NGO has, to date, distributed 92,504 masks and 800
PPE kits, with the initiative still being active.
3. Providing oxygen cylinders
Oxygen cylinders are very essential for people receiving treatment for COVID-19, the shortage of
which created havoc in the country. To help as much as we could to alleviate the situation, we
started arranging and providing oxygen cylinders to patients, as and when required, free of cost.
Many people chose to donate to our NGO’s COVID-19 relief measures, which enabled us to do go
the extra mile with our efforts.
4. Providing hydraulic beds to patients
The pandemic also resulted in an increased demand for hospital beds, stretchers, and mattresses. To
help hospitals expand their facilities to accommodate the increasing number of COVID-19 patients,
our team provided free of cost hydraulic beds for patients.
5. Providing sanitisation service
Sanitisation proved to be a highly effective measure in curbing the spread of coronavirus, which
made the sanitisation of public as well as private spaces crucial to ensure safety for everyone. While
the government had several sanitisation drives underway for public places, our team offered the
service for homes, to help ensure all-round safety.
