What is this funding is all about?
It's a hard time for everyone, with the coronavirus outbreak showing few signs of abating. This has caused fear and wrath while testing the resilience and empathy of many people. In this life-and-death battle, some are working relentlessly to save lives, some are stuck at home overloaded by the barrage of real-time information, while others are struggling to make a living despite the risks.

The lockdown has severely disrupted India’s agricultural sector, starving it of buyers and migrant labourers as the restrictions halt people’s movements. With a sharp decline in takers for vegetables, fruits and flowers, farmers are looking to the government for help.

With a bumper yield of vegetables and cash crops like pulses and oilseeds, farmers are desperately looking for government help to sell their produce at least in the local markets at whatever prices.

For the farmers, who were facing huge financial losses owing to untimely rain and hailstorms in January and February and even March, the lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak had proved a double whammy.The future was seemingly uncertain not only for those whose rabi crop was standing ready in the fields for harvesting but for many paddy field readiness, prepared with fields for sowing. All were clueless about reaching their fields as ban was imposed movement because of the pandemic and all were facing the acute dearth of agricultural labourers.

Why we seek your help?
Farmers are our backbone, it's high time we should help them financially as well as with daily essentially where every possible. Hope your contribution can help them pass this difficult time.

We are planning to help around 1000 farmer/migrant labourers by cash transfer of around 3K + a grocery bag & a PPE kit. Using the cash they can purchase seed, fertilizer, medicine etc.
