With new cases reported every day, corona virus has disrupted the people’s life globally. The pandemic has had a major effect on the entire social and economic structure of the society.
In India, limited healthcare resources like covid-kits, medicines, masks, PPEs among others is one of the major issues. But amid the ongoing healthcare crisis, community members are rising to the occasion and are supporting each other and the hospitals.
Internet Saathi Shivkumari Kushwha from Rewa district, Madhya Pradesh, along with her team, is stitching masks for her community members and hospitals.
Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, the largest government hospital in the division, had given Shivkumari an order of making 15,000 masks. Her nine-member team worked tirelessly and finished it within a few days. Another order of 2000 masks was also made for the Gram Panchayat.
While her team is dedicatedly contributing towards overcoming the shortage of masks, they are also taking every possible health precaution to safeguard themselves and their families.
The team wash hands at regular intervals and wear a mask while working. They even sanitise their sewing machines and other tools along with following all government guidelines as a responsible citizen.
ShivKumari thanked Digital Empowerment Foundation behind her success as an entrepreneur while also providing her with a livelihood opportunity and giving her the confidence to help the community as a social worker amid this crucial situation.
