Jan Shiksha Bhavan (JSB) reached out to the needy during the COVID-19 outbreak in Gaunaha Block. JSB campus was open to the migrant workers who walked miles from Delhi, Lucknow and Gorakhpur. Around 12 migrants were welcomed in our campus and were given meals and space to rest for 2 hours on 28th March. We visited the leprosy colony in Sundarbasti (5 km from JSB). This leprosy colony was established by the ‘Baba’ Bro. Christ Das of Raxaul. JSB identified 15 families and distributed ration to them. There were 54 quarantine centers in Gaunaha Block with 964 people on till 14st April. JSB staff visited 8 centers that were in need of our intervention. With the networking with the Mukhiyas and ward members, tola sevaks and Vikas mitra around 78 people in quarantine centers were given ration. With the cooperation of SHG women and adolescent girls of tailoring centers JSB organized mass scale mask making initiative in 6 tailoring centers. The girls stitched masks for about 2780 families in 6 villages and distributed to the villages themselves.

One of our SEC instructors Ms. Manju Kumari has become an inspiration for the villagers. Ms. Manju Kumari has distributed 80 kgs of rice and 10 kgs of daal to 12 Musahar families in Hardi. These Musahar’s were working bricklin in Bettiah. Since they could not go back to Bettiah to work in bricklin is closed. Around 108 families were given ration till date and 2780 villagers were given masks made by our tailoring centers. Each family was given rice 5 kgs, daal 1 kg, soya bean 250 gram, half a litter of mustard oil, beaten rice 1 kg, jiggery 250 gram, soaps - 2 pcs, biscuits-2 packets.
