Support Sonu Sood In Helping Stranded Migrant Workers


As the world grapples with and comes to terms with the pandemic, migrant laborers in India have had to face unprecedented challenges battling poor living conditions, overnight loss of livelihood, lack of social security and limited medical coverage. Owing to these tribulations, migrant laborers and workers were forced to uproot themselves and their families and head back “home”. We all have borne witness to the images of migrant laborers and their families including women and children walking impossible distances on foot, in adverse weather conditions with a hope to unite with their families in these times of tragedy.


India is witnessing its largest-ever reverse migration from urban centers to semi-urban/rural areas. This migration has been marred with gruesome accidents faced by migrants on their way home. Incidents of laborers being run over by trains while they were resting close to train tracks in the middle of their arduous journey have been reported. Countless road fatalities due to accidents have been brought to light and it is heart-wrenching to share that there have been deaths reported even on account of severe exhaustion after walking impossible distances.

These migrant workers have been pillars of hope for our nation and have toiled tirelessly to drive our great country forward but are facing tremendous uncertainties in these trying times. Families of deceased migrants are still trying to come to terms with their loss and are themselves fighting an ongoing battle for survival. Migrants who have been injured owing to accidents need medical assistance and sustenance as they may not be able to resume work.

Apart from this the primary concern for lakhs of migrant laborers who are still either waiting for their turn to be able to go back or have started trudging back with whatever means they could conjure is to reach home safely. While the stories and pictures of despair amongst our fellow countrymen is spine-chilling, we feel that collectively, WE can make a difference and do our bit to ensure dignity and self-reliance of those impacted the worst by this crisis.


We are partnering with actor and film star Sonu Sood for ensuring that migrant laborers can be sent back home and united with their families in a safe manner. Further, migrants who have faced accidents or whose kin have expired during this time of crisis can be financially empowered to ensure that they can get back to their feet, with dignity.  Sonu has been passionately involved with the cause of migrants and has been hailed by the government as well as media for arranging hassle-free passage of migrant laborers to their respective homes in this time of acute crisis.


We request you to join us and help these migrants get back home and be self-reliant in the aftermath of the catastrophe. This crowdfunding campaign has been created with the objective of sending migrants back home safely and also to create a financial safety net for those who have borne the worst brunt of this crisis owing to accidents.

Please support us and donate wholeheartedly so we can maximize the impact of this campaign and help our fellow citizens cope with this calamity with their heads held high.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you so much for being a part of this journey with us, for all the good that you have brought to society.

It's very important that we give back to the society that we live in and I am humbled to see the love that all of us, put together have given to the ones in need. However, it is really important that we remember that we are currently living under tiring times. Though we have been able to help many people reach home safely, there is still so much that has to be done. With COVID 19, everything is becoming online and it is getting very difficult for those in the education space and also for those who are in need of medical care. Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple requests that have come to me for laptops, mobile phones, tablets, so online education can be conducted at ease. There are also some that are in need of funds so they can take care of medical needs, surgeries, chemotherapies, and so on. This is not the time to stop my dear friends, but to come together and work toward making a better Country. It is no time to be anxious and sit at home, but instead come out and help in whatever way possible.

This is my request, my dearest supporters that we work toward the prosperity of each of us and support the ones that need us via this platform. Let's make this country a better place.

Best,
Sonu Sood

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for all the support that you have shown toward this cause.

As we all know, Sonu has been passionately involved with the cause of migrants and has been hailed by the government as well as media for arranging hassle-free passage of migrant laborers to their respective homes in this time of acute crisis. However, there is so much more that needs to be done, and therefore, we have partnered with Sonu Sood to ensure that migrant laborers who have faced accidents or whose kin have expired during this time of crisis can be financially empowered to ensure that they can get back to their feet, with dignity.  

Please watch the video below where Sonu Sood addresses the need of the hour.

"We saw during the movement of migrants that many of them lost their lives. Be it on trains or on highways, these people were from UP, Jharkhand, MP, Uttarakhand. We made a list of these migrants so that we can help their families. There were many who got injured, be it, labourers or carpenters, we don't know how they'd be able to get back to work. So I think it's necessary to reach out to their families. I am personally going to each and every family and helping them in my capacity so that they know that they are not alone, and we are with them, and we will make sure that they have a better life ahead. I had it in my heart that it was necessary to do this." - Sonu Sood
