COVID – 19 in India has deprived many poor families of their income as they are all at home in a lockdown situation.  Many of their children slipping into malnutrition. Pregnant and lactating mothers in these families are going hungry. This will compromise their immune response and make them more susceptible to the virus. To combat the situation 500 Packet of Nutrition Supplement “CINI Nutrimix” was distributed to the children, pregnant and lactating mothers in different places of Bankuratown with the help of local ICDS workers. 


50 packets of dry ration distributed to hard-hit families of Illu-Jargo G.P. Jhalda, Purulia on 16 th April in the office premises of Purulia Agragami at Jargo maintaining social distancing and other norms.

The availability of Sanitary Napkin in rural areas is most affected.Consumers who could access products at block or district level markets also areunable to do so due to lack of public transport and mobility restrictions underlockdown. A major number of adolescent girls from low-income households dependon the school-based supply of menstrual hygiene products. And with schools closingdown, those girls and their female family members now don't have access tosanitary pads.

Considering the importance and the necessity of these 500packets of Sanitary Napkin distributed to theadolescent girls in Jhalda, Purulia.
