Introducing EKAL SEVA KENDRA (ESK), Karanjo
Rural India needs us! COVID-19 is rapidly spreading in villages with little or no access to essential medical supplies and diagnostic tools. Join our mission to protect villages from this deadly disease.
Message from Ekal Abhiyan CEO Shri Bajrang Bagra
Dear Ekalites,
Our organisation together with the whole nation has been put to test once again, within a short span of time. The second wave of Covid pandemic has impacted villages in a significant manner, presenting a formidable challenge to Ekal. As usual, Ekal with its wide and deep reach in countryside equipped, with a large service-oriented volunteer force, has risen again to respond the call.
Following steps have been taken swiftly, pushing the organisation into action:
  • GRCs and Skill Centresat 29 locations being converted into Ekal Seva Kendras, the Covid Support Centres with a total of 250 beds. 5 centres with 50 beds already in operations. Remaining to be gradually opened and by 18th May all will be in full operation.  These centres are equipped with basic diagnostic tools, Oxygen Concentrators and Para medic staff.
  • Helpline Callcentres ready and operational in 23 states for telemedicine help in regional languages, 400 doctors have registered to help free of charge, through a Toll-Free number.
  • Providing food and basic medicine recommended by doctors through telemedicine at Covid support centres.
  •  Running Vaccine centres in collaboration with local Governments.
  • Diagnostic support with 6,300 Oximeters 6,300 Thermometers in villages, mobilising Ekal teachers, volunteers and local youth.
  • Proactively countering misinformation on viral spread and vaccine safety.
  • Manufacturing and distributing face masks at Women Empowerment Centres training women in tailoring.
  • Sadly, we have lost 6 operation Karyakartas in the line of duty to Covid. Starting an endowment to support their families.
  • Working with other Non-profit organisations like Seva Bharti, Sewa International, Mission Oxygen etc. to provide support.
The above are in addition to awareness drive for preventive methods to enhance immunity like use of Kadha recommended by Ministry of Ayush, Yoga and Pranayama exercises, use of masks and maintaining safe distance. The ladies from cities and towns have been contributing a lot in this awareness drive.
The chapters abroad, USA and Canada in particular, have come forward to lend a supporting hand since very beginning, in addition to raising resources locally.
We together will meet the challenge to put the villages and the nation back to normalcy.
