For some, the changes presented by the pandemic are far more threatening though and with the lockdown still on, these challenges could feel insurmountable.
Closer to home, in Muraharipally, over 500 workers & migrant construction labourers in the Shamirpet mandal who have helped in the upkeep of the area for years now, are now faced with a complete loss of daily wage. This puts them and their families under immense pressure to make it through the next few weeks and months. This includes over 150 children that won't be receiving sufficient nutrition or necessary medication.
Three weeks ago, a few of us in the community, with support from the MRO and Panchayat, came together to support these families distributing nearly 4000kg of rice, oil and other necessities to help get them through the month.
Our target is to create a fund of Rs. 5,00,000 over the next one month. This will not eliminate all the challenges faced by these families but we hope we can help in a small way.
So please donate what you can and spread the word.
Stay home, stay safe.
