Covid-19 Response

DEAL Foundation’s response to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has been informed by its network of self-help groups across village communities and partner organizations working in the district of Gadag.

This has helped develop a sense of the situation on the ground and promote understanding of what needs to be done immediately and in the medium-term to provide support to at risk and vulnerable communities.

Immediate and medium-term support provided to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on lives and livelihoods include:

  • Awareness on Covid appropriate behavior and the need for vaccination.
  • Online registration for vaccination and follow-through with the local PHC.
  • Chaperone services for persons receiving vaccination.
  • General health advisory on managing quarantine and Covid symptoms.
  • Subsistence and livelihood assistance for persons with disability.
  • Psychological and online counselling.
  • Increase capacity for Covid screening and
  • Monitoring of people with symptoms and at risk groups in the community.
