COVID19: SonuSood to create volunteer program for vaccination registration in rural India

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of people have gone jobless or have lost their close ones. In order to provide help, a lot of celebrities have come forward to help them monetarily as well as with food supplies. But there is no stopping for actor Sonu Sood, who on Friday came up with one more initiative to extend his support to people amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He has now launched COVREG, which aims to create a volunteer program for COVID-19 vaccination registration in rural India.

The particular initiative is powered by rural fintech leader Spice Money, which will provide the technological expertise for building the application, and will onboard volunteers through the website

Opening up about the initiative, Sonu said, "Vaccination is the need of the hour in India to win the battle against COVID-19. Rural India continues to struggle in coping with the pandemic and is now also struggling with vaccine registrations. So, COVREG is created based on a detailed understanding of rural India and its needs observed through months of on-ground work."

"COVREG addresses rural-specific issues of vaccine registration and provides much-needed assistance to hesitant rural citizens. The trust that a neighborhood volunteer warrant will be an additional push towards registration," he added. Also, COVREG has been authorized by the Ministry of Health, Government of India as an Application Service Provider (ASP), with protected CoWIN APIs.
