The Supreme Council for Women (SCW) today started fieldwork as part of the “Together for the Safety of Bahrain” campaign which was launched recently.
Basic commodities and health supplies were distributed to families supported by Bahraini women, based on the lists on needy households whose living conditions are being monitored by the council.
The initiative also aims at supporting the families of medical personnel who are on the frontline to combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as the country goes through these exceptional circumstances.
Eleven teams headed to different areas of Bahrain by buses provided by Al-Mansouri Company and Bahrain Mobility International Centre.
An operation centre was set up at the SCW headquarters in Riffa to stock the items and disinfect all the parcels before distributing them to recipients, in line with precautionary measures, especially social distancing.
Private sector companies and individuals took part in the campaign, which was supported through initiatives launched by civil society institutions to provide the required assistance in targeted areas.
