Help The Daily Wage Labourers Survive The Second Wave Of COVID-19

    Feel free to ask Campaigner for a new update on this Fundraiser.


    India’s COVID-19 cases have once again spiked to record high numbers. And it’s only increasing with every passing day. Last year, along with our NGO partners we were able to impact over 2 million+ lives by distributing over 5 lakhs+ products in 23+ states across India. This year, we want to do more.

    This second wave has already been proven to be more dangerous than the first, and with several states imposing curfews, the daily wagers once again face uncertainty. Many of these essential workers include farmers, construction workers, street vendors, masons, painters, vendors and more. This large segment of the unorganized sector does not have the necessary resources to survive another wave of this pandemic. They rely on their daily wages to put food on the table and have already suffered great losses in the last year.

    These communities are already vulnerable as they don’t have proper homes, adequate income or sufficient resources. These individuals from under-served communities are on the brink of starvation. They suffer from various problems such as lack of access to food and basic amenities. Many of them have mostly exhausted their monthly ration supplies and most of them do not have access to avail rations due to lack of awareness. Most of the students rely on midday meals which have also stopped since many schools have shut down.

    The street vendors struggle to sell whatever they have. Women employed in household activities were instructed not to come. They are shut in their own homes with little or no food at all. While there have been efforts to provide ration and food supplies to the marginalized communities, India’s current economic situation, population, and distribution of resources make it a struggle.

    However, our NGO partners are working day and night to provide grocery kits to these families. A few supplies such as rice, dal, and oil can help these families survive. These families need your support and help to survive. COVID-19 should not push them into starvation again. Let’s come together and help the most vulnerable during these difficult times. Together, we can make a difference - these families need your help now more than ever. A grocery kit can save a life. Beneficiary NGOs:
