Mask up, wash your hands! A reminder from KSS

AID has been in touch with Development Research Communication and Services Centre (DRCSC), which is a nodal organization that supports its own partner communities. DRCSC works closely with farmer’s group Kisan Swaraj Samity (KSS) to mobilize West Bengal farmers. It provides training in sustainable agriculture, and advocates for farmers’ rights to ensure income security and sustainable livelihoods.

KSS recently conducted a COVID awareness program emphasizing hand washing and other essential protocols. The picture below was taken in a remote corner of Purba Medinipur District. Grassroots awareness programs such as these are a vital step in controlling the pandemic even before the infection and hospitalization stage.
