Milaap has waived off fees for this campaign. 100% of your donation goes towards the cause.

The impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is severely being felt in India and across the world. While every section of society has been affected, the hardest hit has been vulnerable communities in the unorganized sector, where most of the employment is contractual. In India, the crisis has snatched away the primary source of livelihood and income of 400 million contractual and daily wage workers like rickshaw and taxi drivers, mall workers, maids, street vendors, farmers and others in the unorganized sector.

We will distribute food packages, masks, sanitizers and soap 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.

Why do we need to chip in?
Despite the announcements of relief by both the centre and state, because of this lockdown, we still find at least 30% of families left stranded due to either poor implementation or lack of manpower to identify the needy and resolve. That’s when our team decided to chip in to help the stranded daily wagers and blind/physically challenged families by joining hands with Chilli Chaska.

We mainly provide food provisions/groceries to the families identified by our volunteer force.

Funds collected through this campaign will be utilized in implementing the following activities in cities and rural areas:
  • Providing essential safety materials (such as masks, sanitizer’s & soap)
  • Providing daily utilities & essentials (such as food grains & food packages)
  • Providing emergency financial protection
  • Providing accurate information regarding basic hygiene and safety
Seasonal migrants are landless or small/marginal farmers who have no livelihood opportunities available in their source area. Seasonal migration is often a response strategy to this crisis of lack of job opportunities and the need to earn basic income for subsistence. These migrants are more likely to be socially deprived and poor while having obtained little to no education, with minimal or no assets.

Are we doing in isolation?
Yes. We follow an approach by which our volunteer force operates from home and will step up out in the field only for the collection and distribution of food provision to the identified families with protective kits such as masks, gloves, and sanitizers. Our priority is both helping the needy and prevention of corona.

Every little amount you contribute will put a smile on the face of daily wager/physically challenged families. Please show some love and appreciation to them in the form of donations.
