#COVID Relief -
Helping the stranded Migrants.

We have all been witnessing the unprecedented humanitarian crisis of thousands of impoverished migrant workers, with their entire families, children and luggage, walking on foot to their home states, in the past two weeks, due to the inadequate and uncertain rail & bus transport.
 
OBSERVATIONS:
  • Shortage of Trains vis-à-vis the massive number of migrant workers wanting to go home.
  • Limited Registration of only 200 persons per day per Police Station.
  • Lack of clear guidance, transparency, delays and uncertainty in the process of issuing of movement pass, receipt of confirmed SMS for travel etc., leading to intense desperation amongst workers and decision to walk long distances.
  • Inadequate Information available with ground staff and police to guide workers. 5.
  • Uncertainty of Local Travel from the site of the worker till the railway station.
  • Lack of basic requirements on food & water amongst other safety concerns for women & children.
We propose the introduction of registered bus transport companies who will be ferrying the workers back to their homes. It will be totally free for the migrants who are restless and are walking hundreds of miles. 

Keeping in view the recent accidents due to overcrowded trucks, we are planning to enagage recognized bus operators and running the buses at 2/3rd capacities to adhere to the social distancing norms. Also, the trip is being insured to cover for any accident or damage during the journey. The travelers would also be provided with Food Kits to help in their journey home.

The scenario for the migrants is rapidly changing on ground. The government is coming with new provisions and regulations on a daily basis, and any planned work seems difficult. However, we are on look out to assess the needs of the migrants and support them in any way.

We are responsible for your support extended and shall keep you posted about the utilization for the same.
