Home delivery will increase infection risk, will deliver at Anganwadi centres: Negi
The Anganwadi workers will not deliver the Take Home Ration (THR) directly at the home of children, pregnant women and lactating mothers in their area, said state president of Anganwadi Workers Association, Rekha Negi. Every month the Anganwadi workers distribute THR in their respective Anganwadi centres under Supplementary Nutrition Programme (SNP) of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) for 300 days. This time, according to Negi, the state government has ordered them to distribute the THR for the month of April by personally delivering it to the beneficiaries.
Amid the threat of COVID-19, it can be very risky for the Anganwadi workers as well as for beneficiaries as anyone can be the carrier of the virus, said Negi. “We will not distribute THR by delivering it to the homes of every beneficiary under our respective Anganwadi centres. We will distribute the THR in our centres while taking all the precautions for the safety of everyone near the Anganwadi centres. The centres will be sanitised and proper social distancing will be maintained among the people,” said Negi. She added that besides the beneficiaries, the state government should also consider the situation of Anganwadi workers and keep them safe from the risk of COVID-19.
