The Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic has unleashed unfathomable strife and great hardships across the world. Apart from the rising death toll, people have also suffered immensely due to the economic crisis that was precipitated by the necessary lockdown. Organisations like Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have come forward to help the vulnerable sections of the society by either distributing food packets, manufacturing masks, reaching out and distributing them in places facing a scarcity, distributing bed sheets and blankets and providing basic medicines etc. 

Not only in India but Vishwa Hindu Parishad have also reached out to the poor families in other countries like Thailand to help people in distress. As part of the community sewa initiative, VHP Thailand extended the effort to help almost 3000 families facing adversities due to COVID-19 in the 9 districts of Bangkok during the month of May and June 2020.
