Relief for Daily wage labourers of East Garo Hills #COVID19

The lockdown which has been imposed to stop the spread of the COVID-19 poses a great challenge for the daily wage earners. Most of us, who are salaried employees or having business would perhaps manage the lockdown as we would have enough stock at home and savings to take us through these times. But things are very different from the daily wage earners. As everything is closed, they can not earn their wages. Many are not registered with the labour department and do not have bank accounts. All of them work doing the day and buy food items in the evening for their families. But because of the present situation, there is no work for them to do. 

For them, relief in the form of Rice, Dal etc is IMMEDIATELY NEEDED. Through the Achik Chadambe SHG , we are providing the same. Many local residents and officials are coming forward to donate money or ration. But the volume of daily wagers is too high and we need all the help we can get from across the globe. Please extend a helping hand.

Deputy Commissioner

Hello all,

As the lock down is extended, we are also extending the campaign. Yes, few activities have been relaxed but it will take perhaps a lot longer for majority works to resume. There is still no work for most of the daily wagers as the demand side has gone for a toss. We look forward to more helping hands.

Hello everyone,

Once again thank you for your contribution. So far we have raised more than 5,00,000 INR and I am happy to share that we have reached out to more than 1000 households by providing them needed rations. These are mostly the daily wage earners who are not being able to work because of the lockdown.

Our relief team which comprises of Volunteers is covering the entire district. It includes the urban daily wagers of district headquarters and the rural daily wagers from the villages. Essentially we are catering to all the daily wagers of east garo hills district of Meghalaya.

We have engaged a SHG named Achik Chadambe SGH which is a registered society of local youth who are doing the distribution and procurement of ration. The money raised from the campaign is being directly transferred to them.

So far we have withdrawn and utilized 4,30,000 INR and using this Rice, daal, salt etc are purchased from the local market and then our teams go the localities and distribute it to the daily wagers.

Pictures are being enclosed herewith.

Thank you for supporting our campaign.
