We are a group of film professionals trying to do our bit at this moment of a humanitarian crisis. As India has entered its second phase of Lockdown, the lives of the poor, especially daily wagers, other unorganized workers and the destitute classes is going to be much more challenging.
Abiding by the most urgent need for social distancing and personal safety, we have ensured that we do not move in a large group. We have opted for the following simple approach.
A-PROXIMITY: Campaign committee members are assigned delivery areas as per the proximity of their residence.
B-LOCAL SUPPORT: We have established a channel of local resident partners to deliver relief to the right households, without allowing an assembly and also avoiding any duplication.
LOCAL DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS
A community-supported nonprofit organization run by the members that hail from families of domestic workers. Bhakar Foundation is already doing an exemplary work of distributing cooked meals to those in need.
B - Residents’ Welfare Association of Ambujwadi, Malvani, Malad
C - Jogeshwari, Andheri, and sometimes even Santa Cruz have been covered with our local volunteers.
During the first phase of the lockdown, we focussed on supporting in an individual capacity or through the help of our immediate friends and family.
1- HELP FOR OUR HELP
We initiated this small campaign to help our domestic workers. We encouraged each other to pay the domestic help a month salary and one month ration. Additionally, we keep communicating in the group to check on the respective house helps and ensure their urgent needs are met.
