It has been amazing week of carer celebrations across Koraput District in Odisha state, India. Activities concluded yesterday with an Carers Day event hosted by our partner Ekta in Koraput.
Hundreds of carers and their families from both Koraput & Dasmantpur blocks joined us to connect with each other and lobby for their rights. They gathered in the streets to show their solidarity, express their emotions about their caring roles and the challenges they face and take part in a mass rally to raise awareness of their situations.
With thanks to the hard work of the entire Ekta team, taking part in this ground breaking event will be a fond memory for many months to come.
With special thanks to all of the VIP guests who attended the event: Mr. Bhagaban Bahinipati, Chairman, Koraput Municipality, Mrs. Pravathi Tripathy, DSWO in charge, Ms. Soudamini Pradhan, BSSO, Mr. Dilip Hial, Mr. Sunil Kumar Nayak, Mr. Krushna Majhi, Kendar Sarpanch, Mr. Durga Prasad Mohanty & Mr. Jagannath Mishra.
