This is the story of Thakubai Burange. She has been a widow for a few years now and continued to work and provide for her family. Pre-COVID she worked in the MNREGA and had income from her farm too. However, when COVID hit she lost work. The family struggled to make ends meet. She had to subsist on the ration given by the PDS. The NGO and government have already reached out to her to help. Mrs. Burange said, “My family has been supported before. But it was very useful to hear COVID-related information along with the soap and mask. I am grateful to the UNICEF COMARG team ” Thakubai feels that the information she has received makes her and her family less afraid to deal with COVID-19 if anything happens.
