“I cannot do all the goods that the world needs, but the world needs all the goods that I can do.”

– Jana Stanfield

The COVID-19 is a foe to humanity today that has reshaped our daily lives. Lockdown of colleges, schools, offices, etc. and has made all of us sit behind our locked doors. But we are still lucky that we have the luxury of sitting on our couches and still crib about the quarantine, which indeed is for our betterment. Did any of you think about the people who are working for us day and night? The doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, bankers, aviation employees, police force, sweepers, etc. are striving to do their best so that we can get rid of this pandemic. 

Moving on to the next category of people suffering the most are the daily wage earners. India is a country of 133 crore people, out of which the majority of people fall under this category. This lockdown has left these people with no option of earning money and has made it very difficult for them to survive. To avoid their sufferings and deterring the contagion, the central and state governments are consistently coming out with new ways to help out.

Here are some beneficent ways in which you can help the people to cope up with the economic crisis and the COVID-19 outbreak.

Donate at PM CARES Fund

Until now, all of you must be aware of the emergency fund launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accept the requests from numerous delegates, celebrities, and people from around the country to fight against the COVID-19. If you are a bit sceptic about stepping from your houses, then why not visit the PM CARES Fund online and contribute your part to the nation and its people. 

  • For making your contribution to this fund you can transfer the amount into the account details given below.
  • You can make the payments via internet banking, credit cards, debit cards, RTGS, NEFT, or UPI.

Provide Food and Medical Supplies to the Needy

At such peak time, the biggest problem these BPL people are facing is the availability of food due to the crisis of money and discrimination. So, make it a point that you help people by providing them with food and medical supplies. You can get in touch with local NGOs and join them to offer food to the poor. Also, help in arranging sanitizers and masks, so that these people do not panic. Your single gesture of help is a lot to make them realize that we are there to help them, and they need not feel alone. 

Arrange Places for Isolation Wards

If you are a part of any religious group, then try talking to them for giving the halls for creating isolation wards. India is in high need of the isolation wards and hence it can be helpful if you can help in arranging one. 

Respect the Frontline Workers

In some latest scenarios, there are many incidents where people are harassing the frontline workers and their families to leave the societies they live in. It is because they fear that these workers and their family members might be the disease carriers. You can try to make these society members understand that the frontline workers are putting their lives at stake only for us, and we need to respect that. If in any case, you find such rude behaviour against the workers, then you can file a case against the people who are creating such nuisance during this critical time.

Volunteer and Teach the Safety Measures

If you are a teacher or have excellent oratory skills, then you can surely use these skills to aware people around you. In these few weeks, you must have seen that several youngsters and medical workers have come up with videos and lectures for the people. We must follow the safety measures for stopping the COVID-19 from destroying the country.

Feed the Animals

Amidst this outbreak, we all have forgotten them. It is a serious issue, and we need to take care of it. So, next time you go out then make sure to take some biscuits and chapatis to feed these animals. 

Guys, today not just our country but the whole world is in crisis, and we need to stand with each other to fight back COVID-19. But the first thing you need to make sure is your safety, so that you can deter it from spreading. So, wear a mask and carry the sanitizer whenever you step out of your house. Protect yourself, and you will end up saving 15,000 people from it.
