Currently, in Shark, Mady and Kyzyl-Kyshtak rural districts of Kara-Suu district in Osh oblast, psychological and legal assistance is being provided through WhatsApp and mobile communication.

Due to fears of becoming infected with COVID-19, psychological counselling for those in need is provided online. To prevent domestic violence, a video on “How to get rid of negative feelings” is sent via WhatsApp to SHG members and parents, thereby morally supporting them. For children's SHGs and schoolchildren video lessons on the topics “Living Space”, “Know Yourself” was prepared and sent via WhatsApp, then feedback was organized to consolidate learned material. Project psychologist Dilfuza Anarbaeva noted that this work is carried out jointly with expert psychologist Chynara Termechikova, social specialists and juvenile liaison officers.

Project lawyer Dilshod Kadirkhodjaev gave information on the work being done at this time. He said that he helps the rural population how to fill out route sheets to travel to the city and gives various consultations to resolve SHG issues by phone. At the same time, he assists in identifying vulnerable families and in distributing assistance to them in the form of products (flour, pasta, butter). Besides, we advise the beneficiaries on issues of land disputes and benefits, thus helping to solve their problems - D. Kadirkhodjaev added.
