Nagpur Moms Club (#NagMo) donated around 60-70 immunity kits to city journalists who have been relentlessly reporting amid COVID-19 lockdown. Apart from journalists, the club also donated kits to the three woman DCPs of the city – Vinita S, Nirmala Devi and Shweta Khedkar.
Nagpur Moms Club, which is a 14,000 strong online support page for mothers, mothers-to-be, ‘mompreneuers’ and women on Facebook and Instagram, was co-founded by four young and energetic mothers from the city including – Anisha Agarwal, Apeksha Kongovi Munde, Nikita Bembi and Ritu Kukreja.
Nikita Bembi told Nation Next, “Usually government provides frontline COVID-19 workers like doctors and policemen with safety equipment. Journalists, who too have been risking their lives to give us crucial information on COVID-19, have been working on field; they’re on their own. That’s when we decided to acknowledge their efforts and provide them with immunity boosting kits to fight COVID-19. So far, we’ve provided these kits to 60-70 of them; we plan to give more. Moreover, every product in the kit including the N95 mask has been made in India.”
The club, which has been distributing food kits to the migrants stranded in the city, also acknowledged animal activists for taking care of animals in COVID-19, who otherwise could have been neglected given the situation of lockdown.
The club has previously conducted many on ground activities like flash mob, seminars, flea markets, festive programmes, charitable events that have included children of different age groups and women across various walks of life.
