A content bank on coronavirus

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is seeing overwhelming response from grassroots organisations, donors, multilateral agencies. As a part of its humanitarian response, Arghyam reached out to several organisations working on the ground to understand their most urgent needs and we realised that along with relief material the one thing that was glaringly absent was the right information to disseminate in appropriate regional languages/ dialects. 

 

A rapid assessment and conversations with other organisations led us to a rich set of material already created by other organisations. The Content Bank is a collation of context-relevant COVID-19 resources produced by several organizations in more than 20 Indian languages. Scroll down below the table for help on how to use it.

 

This content bank is also available in Hindi
