But right now, there are lots of marginalized Indians including Transgenders existing without this safety net.
With most people from the community working in the unorganized sector, the trans community is now facing a direct threat to life with little to no welfare benefits. This includes manual laborours and blue-collar workers who have to travel to public, crowded spaces for work. If they cannot bring back their daily wages, they will not have food and necessities for themselves and their families.
Given this situation, there is an urgent need to help the trans community tide over this coming month. We are a collective of people in Thiruvallur who are trying to raise funds for at least 150 transgender persons for their basic provisions like food, oil, salt, drinking water, masks, basic medical supplies and soap so that they can also stay at home this month, and stay safe.
Please take a few moments to make a small contribution and we will take it forward to ensure that these 150 people have basic provisions at least. Your small contribution may mean the difference of someone's life.
The following is the estimate table for the items to be provided for a person for one week.
PS: Trans person would include trans women, trans men.
