APFERWAS During the Health Emergency 
APFERWAS, Vishakhapatnam donated Rs.4 lakh to the AP Chief Minister Relief Fund towards COVID 19 relief activities. The cheque for this amount was handed over to Mrs. G.Srijana, IAS, Commissioner, GVMC in her office  by Mr.Uday Shirname, President, APFERWAS in the presence of his colleagues. This amount is collected from its constituent RWAs in the six zones of the city of Visakhapatnam. The APFERWAS EC team as well as the Coordinators of the six zones made it possible by just using what’s app and bank transfer facility to pool up this fund without moving much in the lockdown period of April-May, 2020. The coordinators in particular made hectic efforts in motivating the RWAs to donate for this noble cause.
In addition to this fund generation, most of the RWAs participated in COVID-19 relief activities, by way of providing groceries and safety materials like masks, gloves, sanitizers to the victims affected by the lockdown. Rice, pulses, free food were provided at many of the centres opened by the RWAs on National Highways and at important clusters in the city.
During the last months, RWAs continuously organized awareness programmes for citizens on social distancing, importance of using sanitisers, avoiding crowded places, etc. Social media Apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter have been extensively used to caution the residents on the ill-effects associated with Coronavirus.
In some colonies, COVID warriors including doctors, sanitary staff, security and paramedical personnel were honoured by the RWAs for safeguarding the public by their selfless work under the most critical conditions.
