Healing Fields Foundation

The leadership of our women health leaders manifested full force during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Healing Fields has activated 1,200 Community Health Facilitators to educate their communities, distribute rations and launch covid committees in their villages. Following the nation-wide lockdown, Healing Fields provided dignified journeys home for 2,475 migrant laborers stranded away from home and established 103 quarantine centers for a safe transition. Village women health leaders have used an IVRS platform- Gramvaani- to spread COVID-related information in their villages. They did large-scale demonstrations of hand washing and social distancing protocols. They have also facilitated 7500 families’ access to entitlements and provided 10,212 families rations. These leaders are preparing their villages, preventing new infections and protecting the most vulnerable members of their communities.
