Help Freelancing massagers in Mumbai, unemployed since last 3-4 months

Tax benefits
As India’s COVID-19 count crosses the 250 mark, curbing the virus within the next few weeks will be critical in containing the disease. Reaching out to most vulnerable communities at this time is of crucial importance. Daily-wage earners (such as construction workers, street vendors, garland makers, etc.) are fast losing jobs and are unable to procure food and essential items. Many households are surviving on little or no food.

Over the last several days, Youth for Unity and Voluntary Action (YUVA), a non-profit development organisation, has been reaching out to low-income and vulnerable communities in 20+ settlements across 4 cities in the Greater Mumbai area where we work—Vasai Virar, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Panvel covering more than 1,500 families. It was revealed that they are in dire need of support.

Individuals from disadvantaged communities (Pardhis, transgenders and many others) and homeless people are almost on the brink of starvation. Anganwadis have stopped daily food supplies in many areas; schools are closed and mid-day meals have also stopped. With the lack of daily-wage jobs, many migrant workers have been frantically trying to get on the fastest train to make their way home.

We launched a campaign ‘Together We Can’ to raise funds and in-kind support the to offer emergency relief food supplies to the urban poor, starting with the most marginalised families first. We have already distributed basic provisions to 200 homeless families, comprising 1,000+ individuals

We have followed a sensitive approach in providing families with a week’s worth of rations per package (Rs 600).  This food kit comprises of the following:
  • Rice
  • Wheat
  • Pulses
  • Oil

Today we are reaching out to nearly 800 more households and we appreciate any help from you.  We are accepting support in cash and kind (foodgrains and non-perishable food only). Together we can help them survive the pandemic.

119 days since the first COVID-19 induced lockdown, words like 'containment' and 'quarantine' are now part of everyday use. While work from home has been established as the new normal for some, others less privileged are continuing to struggle with lack of access to jobs and income, monsoon-related vulnerabilties and more.  

Your support has helped us so far distribute 38,649 ration kits (to 193,245 persons). As part of Jeevan Rath, a collaborative initiative of 50+ organisations, we have distributed 17,130 essential item kits, and facilitated travel arrangements for 1,000+ migrant workers on their way home.

Please continue to support us! Every contribution helps!

 Even as relief efforts continue, YUVA is committed to the resilience strengthening of vulnerable groups by helping people access welfare schemes (such as registration and job cards under MNREGS), entitlements (such as ration cards), and basic services (such as access to water). Our efforts have so far helped nearly 1,000 families access ration without ration cards (through Aadhaar cards), and another 750 names are under submission to ration offices. 130 people have been registered and provided job cards under MNREGS
