Imagine telling your future generations that you helped the less privileged live a life of dignity. How does that feel?
For almost a month, the only way the workers are returning home is by walking, cycling, or hitching rides. They are covering a distance of more than 2000 km on foot, without food and money, surviving on the mercy of others. Krishan Kumar working in Bombay as daily wage labor, walked back to his village in Jharkhand’s Chaibasa from Mumbai, a distance of more than 1,800 km, with six others. We all know that he is not the only one; in fact, he is one of the thousand other helpless workers who resort to life-threatening ways to reach home due to lack of money. Reading about the death of workers has become a common headline these days.
Hence, we at Think Act Rise Foundation and Jiyo India Foundation request for your support in helping those who build our lives, because without them our nation cannot prosper.
After successful completion of our mission to distribute more than 30,000 face shields and PPE kits to our doctors, policemen, and civic body workers now we sincerely wish to continue helping the helpless, our brothers and sisters who form the backbone of our nation.
Through the campaign, ‘Journey Back Home’, we aim at transporting more than 1000 homeless workers around the country back home and reuniting them with their loved ones. Our efforts can’t take effect unless we have the support of every citizen of the nation. Your donation will definitely make a big difference in the lives of those facing the adverse consequences of the ongoing pandemic.
Nevertheless, giving back is as good for you as it is for those you are helping because giving gives you purpose and happiness. And, helping others is the first step in making the world a better place. T
This morning a worker returned back home to Uttarakhand along with 50 others from Delhi and on reaching he mentioned that he feels grateful to be back home and it is no less than a dream for him. “I couldn’t have asked for more, it’s a blessing to be reunited with my family” mentioned Shyama Singh. Another one from the group said “I am very happy to see my kids and husband. The journey was good. I followed all the precautions.” Further, another group of overjoyed workers returning from Delhi to Lucknow was reported thanking the organization for making special arrangements to ensure their safe return.
Once again, we leave you with the same question we began with; imagine telling your future generations that you helped the less privileged live a life of dignity. How does that make you feel?
Human, isn’t it?
Thank you in advance for your generosity! Your support will go a long way.
