ALARM’s Contribution to COVID-19 Response of Myanmar

Since the arrival of COVID-19 in Myanmar in March, 2020, ALARM, being also a local non-profit organization, has proactively been contributing to the fight against coronavirus. ALARM formed community based COVID-19 response volunteer groups with the members of partner CSOs and local institutions where there are no volunteer groups and if these groups have already in place, ALARM cooperated with them and handed over these medical aids, protective measures and education materials to the Rural Health Centers, Sub-Centers, Township General Hospitals, Philanthropic Organizations, Local Authorities such as EAOs in Shan State, Ethnic Political Parties such as Mon Unity Party in Mon State and Local Authorities.
Through these local organizations, ALARM, together with the volunteers, help distributed these aids to the communities and CQCs. Prior to distribution of these aids, ALARM delivered basic community healthcare trainings to these volunteers. Contributions made by ALARM during such time of COVID-19 crisis include
