Bhubaneswar:25/4/20: A unique website inviting volunteers of Odisha to join the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in the State has been launched by ASC-cum-Development Commissioner Suresh Chandra Mahapatra in OSDMA Conference Hall on Saturday.
The Government of Odisha has summoned all its resources to tackle this crisis due to the Coronavirus. Various International Agencies and Civil Society Organisations have shown overwhelming interest on a voluntary basis to support the efforts of the State Government. It was also seen that there are many without affiliation to any organization that is willing to work with the Government in fighting against the pandemic.
The Odisha Government is now inviting volunteers to come forward and register themselves through ‘https://covidsangramee.odisha.gov.in’ and support the government and the people of Odisha.
The site developed by the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority (OSDMA) with support from UNICEF will enable individuals as well as organisations to register themselves, specify their area of expertise, and also indicate geographical areas where they would like to serve. Volunteers will be able to work from home, at government offices or in-field locations to provide services in public awareness and information, essential services, health, and relief camp management.
State Government and district administrations can use the reporting feature of the application to assign tasks to registered volunteers.
