A brave Anganwadi worker, Relu Vasave travels 18 kilometers daily to reach the interior villages. She leaves her home every day to attend the tribal children below six years and expecting mothers.

Relu, who belongs to Nashik, is an Anganwadi worker from Nandurbar in Maharashtra. Even during the tough times like COVID-19, she continued to look after the health, weight, and proper growth of newborns and their mothers.

Since April, she has been visiting newborn tribal babies and expecting mothers from the hamlets of Aligat and Dadar so that they do not miss out on their proper medical care and nutrition.

“Rowing daily is tough but it’s important that babies and expecting mothers eat nutritious food and be healthy,” said Vasave.

While talking to reporters, Relu expressed, "My hands pain by the time I reach home in the evening. But that doesn't worry me. It's important that babies and expecting mothers eat nutritious food and remain healthy. I will keep visiting these hamlets till things improve on the COVID-19 front."

She has received heaps of praises from the tribal people for her hard work and efforts during this pandemic.

Apart from that, she has also been personally applauded for her great work on behalf of Chief Minister and Chief executive of the Nandurbar Zilla Parishad.
