During the pandemic, she also conducted various socialization related to COVID-19 for women and children with disabilities who had never received any socialization from the government about How to survive during Covid-19. Some things that have been done by Qanita are an effort to be able to achieve the goal of SGDs 4 that related to education for disabilities and also SDGs 5 of equality for women, especially with disabilities.
