Help the families of daily wage labourers during the Corona crisis


    Impact as on (17th August 2020) - We have distributed grocery kits to over 42,800+ families and a total of 2,14,000+ individuals in and around 23+ states across India.

    We're grateful to have the support of over 12,046 donors for this campaign. Many of the beneficiaries are daily wage labourers, construction workers, slum dwellers, poor communities. Even though the lockdown has ended, there are many industries which are still closed. Without any work, many daily wage workers are struggling to feed their families. 

    The campaign is a long term relief effort to support more families in need. These families need your help more than ever. 

    Over the past few months, Corona Virus has spread rapidly across the country. India’s COVID-19 cases have spiked to a magnanimous number and the numbers are increasing. The government has been actively working towards stemming the outbreak. A severe lockdown has been put in place in all the states. The lockdown has also been extended in various phases and these workers are still struggling to survive.

    A large segment of the unorganized sector i.e., the daily wage workers, the construction labourers, farmers and so on do not have the necessary resources to survive. They rely on their daily wages to put food on the table. 

    Many of the essential workers are farmers, construction workers, street vendors, masons, painters, vendors and more. They rely on their daily wages to put food on the table.

    There is a huge lack of awareness of the pandemic among these individuals from marginalized communities. 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. 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 the government has been making 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.

    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. The Corona Virus should not push them into starvation.

    We've helped feed more than 30,000+ families. We can do more, with your help. Donate a grocery kit to the poor now.
