Magadh Foundation*, along with Dalit Adivasi Shaki Adhikar Manch (DASAM) is providing monetary support to the families of sewer workers, safai karamchari 's — people who are instrumental in keeping the Delhi-NCR clean and hygienic. These families and individuals are severely affected in the lockdown. They are encountering economic hardships and living in challenging circumstances. Relief support has been hard to reach them as they are the faceless people of the city. Most of them are migrants from different states who end up living in Delhi-NCR for their livelihoods and make a living. We are reaching out to families of sewer worker spread all over Delhi and trying our best to provide limited monetary support ranging from Rs. 500, 1,000 to 2,000 per household. These limited contributions can help them sail through this time of economic pandemic crisis. Besides, we are extending support to families outside the sewer work occupation, which are caught up in tough situations too and need financial assistance.
Monetary assistance is being provided only to verified people. Our team is visiting them even in the remotest parts of Delhi to identify the neediest who have no access to support. Without your support, we cannot reach out to them! Since lockdown has been extended, the situation has only grown grimmer. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.Donations are certainly welcome as we are currently providing direct cash support to them. If you want to assist in kinds such as food ration, sanitisers, masks or any additional items, kindly reach out to us. We can collect the items from you or you can participate in the distribution as well. We have a strong grassroots reach to make this happen.
We will provide the photographic proofs and documents of the direct cash support provided to the neediest individuals/households in the Delhi-NCR. You can contact with us on Twitter @Magadhfdn.
