Help those who leave their homes to help you.
As the entire world unites like never before, to fight against a common threat posed by the novel corona virus, we take solace in the fact that we’re not alone. That we can get through it together. Because we’re all in the same boat.
But are we, really?
While we are safely locked in our homes, there are those who are walking thousands of miles just to get to theirs. While we use this time learning new dishes from the internet, there are those waiting for their next meal.
India has approximately 400 million migrant workers, many of whom are daily wage earners. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lock down has affected millions of these migrant families, who are stuck with no food to eat and nowhere to go.
Reality of Migrant Workers
Migrants workers always comes to work for a short term. A period of six months btween Sep to March of every year. They go back to their native for farming once the rain started by April/May. Employer does not prefer them on regular basis, because they come and go in short tenure. So they tend to work only in Kiln or Brick factory on daily wages basis. They are usually lured by the Agent by few thousands as advance payment however once they reach the place or factory they get surprised with unhygienic environment/huts. They can not go back or complain to higher authority because they have taken advance amount from the agent. Their daily chaos start with 8 am every day and work for 12 hours at every factory to generate more bricks for the owner so that they can get more profit. They are not allowed with medical facilities, No registration process, No ESI, No proper environment, No education to their kids. The daily wages what they get is not even sufficient for their weekly vegetables and Groceries. Hardly they are allowed to go out and meet common public. They are being tortured , Sexually abused, Raped during those days. All these are suppressed within four walls.
