    Families Of Puliyanthope

    from Pulianthope , Chennai

Pulianthope is one among Chennai’s worst COVID-19 affected areas. The lockdown has already disproportionately affected marginalized communities due to loss of livelihood and shortage of food, shelter, healthcare and other basic needs.

We, teachers of  Chennai Primary and Higher Secondary School, Pulianthope for the past 7 years and are currently  working  with approximately 200 families to provide covid-relief support .

More than 80% of the breadwinners from these families are daily wage labourers and are employed in the informal sector. Predominantly they were employed as slaughterhouse workers who have now been forced out of jobs due to COVID, resulting in families running into debts.  Around 50% of the families have exhausted their savings and have mortgaged their valuables to help with their basic needs.

So far we have been able to provide essential ration supplies to these families and are now seeking your help to extend this support in providing economic relief to them.

The funds received through this fundraiser will solely be used towards supporting the well-being of the families of Pulianthope. A contribution of Rs. 5000 will help a family of four for a month.

We are raising an amount of Rs. 10,00,000 to support 200 families of Pulianthope. We request your support through contributions of any amount and sharing this with your network. Thank you in advance for your trust and generosity.

Additionally, you can extend your support in providing contacts or information on opportunities for employment-both part-time and full-time in Chennai, that will help provide social protection and sustained development to our families above.
