This very active group has organised themselves into small focused working teams pulling in from their network of experts for each to make things move fast but also with direction and quality, says a press communique. With total transparency in the use of money, volunteers have been working on tasks ranging from a Need Assessment Group and Procurement Team to Implementation & Logistics and Quality check, Social media and PR support.

The appeals of the ‘Support Group for Covid Warriors in Goa’ trust are aimed at people living outside Goa, who have all got links with the State. Their line – “You have always come to Goa for that much
needed holiday – Now Goa Needs You.”
“Your contribution will keep the work going. Please help us help Goa,” is the plea.
