We successfully organised our first vaccination camp at Koundampalayam, Coimbatore, in collaboration with the Community Organisation for Oppressed and Depressed Upliftment (COODU), on July 6th 2021.
The free vaccination camp for the general public was organised with the support of The Department of Health and Family Welfare, Tamil Nadu and KGM Hospitals, a private hospital chain in Coimbatore.
“The beneficiaries included over 250 individuals from marginalised sections of Koundampalayam, Coimbatore aged 18 and above, most of whom received their first dose.”Read More
The Help Desk
We recognised that although many resources are available, albeit scarcely, most people are unsure of where or how to look for them. This includes beds and medicines, but also ambulances, COVID test centres, vaccination centres etc.. We aimed to solve this through ‘The Help Desk’ - a database of verified information and resources for COVID patients. The document (available in both English and Tamil) is constantly updated and is easily accessible via our social media platforms.Read More
The Info Desk
‘The Info Desk’ was born from the necessity to disseminate correct information about COVID. New COVID variants, fungi, convoluted instructions for home-care and vaccine-related misinformation have negatively affected people with otherwise milder cases, as well as added to the stress already present on the healthcare system. Our information comes directly from a team of four medical professionals, working with COVID patients and social media posts are curated in both English and Tamil.Read More
The Food Chapter
With a simple form to fill, the Food Chapter connects quarantined individuals/families with those willing to provide food for the required time. In case we are unable to find a match, local home-shares or larger food providing services are contacted to do the needful.Read More
Help Tiruppur Breathe
A fundraiser in collaboration with the Community Organisation for Oppressed and Depressed Upliftment (COODU), a Coimbatore-based NGO and Rehabilitation Centre for Blind Women (RCBW), a Trichy-based NGO.
