As the COVID-19 pandemic grows, there’s a section of society that has been brought to its knees. Most of these men and women work on minuscule amount per day as plumbers, house help, garbage collectors, rickshaw pullers and street-side vendors. They don’t have the option to work from home, take time off or avoid public transportation to practice social distancing, which is helping save lives across the globe. They depend on this amount they earn through the day to put food on the table for their family.
With the lockdown in effect and no jobs available for these daily wage earners and pavement dwellers, Hunger is a reality they are facing, the pangs bringing tears to the eyes of their little children.
Bringing a smile on their faces can be a blessing unparalleled with any other emotion.
