The COVID-19 pandemic has marked its global presence and has initiated an evolving economic crisis. With the figures soaring up on a daily basis and the extension in the Lockdown period. The worst affected are those who earn their daily bread, homeless on the streets and low-income groups.
Till date, we have successfully supported 150 migrant workers and 48 families with grocery & sanitation kits which would last for 15 days. We have also been able to help 30 senior citizens & people having mobility issues. Whereas the collaboration of our partner organisations headed by Eklavya has helped more than 2000 migrant workers all over Maharashtra.
Since the lockdown has been extended, there has been an outpour of calls. We are providing last-mile help in 3 ways:
1. Providing month-long ration & sanitation kits to migrant workers and families of daily wage workers
2. Providing cash relief to migrant workers & families of daily wage workers who are staying at inaccessible locations (volunteers are unable to reach) The cash relief provided to the migrant workers is INR 700. The families of daily wage workers receive INR 3,000/-.
3. Assisting the senior citizens & people with mobility issues to get groceries & medicine
We would be truly grateful if you can contribute to help us support these families during this crisis.

Many people who helped us in normal times are struggling today to pay bills. These include daily wage earners like rickshaw and taxi drivers, mall workers, maids, street vendors and others in the unorganized sector. We will distribute food packages to people who have been hit by the short-term closure of businesses. The amount needed is much larger and the Government will help eventually. But in the meanwhile.
let's help some of these people today.
