UMANG has released a special edition of its newsletter to spotlight the efforts of team members and partners, help alleviate fear and stigma around COVID-19, and promote access to relief efforts in the villages of Godda and Jamatara districits, Jharkhand. The Newsletter is available in English and Hindi.

“Through a range of activities, including preparation and distribution of essential supplies, awareness generation campaigns on hygienic practices, etc., UMANG team members have been amplifying and strengthening the reach of government response activities,” said Dr. Ravi Verma, Director of ICRW Asia. “It is heartening to share that many adolescent girls, who have been part of the UMANG program, have been actively leading and participating in response activities in their respective communities.”
