Clean-Up Foundation conducts health & COVID 19 vaccination awareness campaign for city's rag-pickers:
Mumbai, March 10, 2021: Continuing its work to help the rag-pickers of Mumbai, Clean-Up Foundation conducted an awareness campaign on improving health and hygiene of the city's rag-pickers along with creating awareness about the COVID 19 vaccination. The initiative was part of the National Safety Week 2021 drive and was conducted in association with Aasra Welfare Association at ‘H' West ward of MCGM.

During this event, Dr. Jitendra Patil, MBBS and Occupational Health Specialist highlighted the hazards, risks and control measures for health and personal hygiene management. He also shared the importance of COVID-19 vaccination and how safe it is to get oneself vaccinated. A skit was also organized in association with Yuvak Pratisthan, an NGO focusing on behavioural change among rag pickers. Clean Up Foundation distributed 3 ply cloth masks to all the Safai Sathis at the event.

Commenting on this initiative, Sanjana Runwal, Co-Founder of Clean-Up Foundation said, "It is our endeavour to provide the rag pickers with the kind of support that is not easily available to them. That's why we conducted a session on mental health some time back to help this segment deal with the anxiety and concerns that develop with the backdrop of the pandemic. Now, with the vaccination having commenced, again there are a lot of doubts, concerns and general lack of information about its impact on one's health. This event was planned with the clear objective of providing valuable insights to the rag pickers about the whole process and the associated health benefits."

Sanjana's aim is to improve the living conditions of those who keep our city clean - the garbage cleaners and rag pickers.

Mr. Parmar (Khar Nagar chowki)

"I've been working as a garbage cleaner in BMC for the past 20 years." Because of this, I've suffered from quite a few diseases in the past. I am grateful to the Clean-Up Foundation for helping me by installing water-purifier in my home. Now I am getting clean and pure water to drink.

Mr. Bajirao

Sincere thanks to the Clean-up Foundation. It's because of them that fresh & clean water is now available to us right within our Chowki. Now we don't have to go out for it.
