As the crisis grows, the people most affected by it will be those living in India’s unorganised sector of the Indian economy. These are typically daily wagers, maids, house helps, construction site workers, plumbers, electricians, workers in small units, delivery boys, etc., and their financial wellbeing will be directly impacted by their inability to earn their daily wage. It is here that we can all extend our help to such affected persons in turn help their families.
The Immediate Requirements
The large amount of hourly/daily wage workers do not have the backing of any sort of insurance, and as we all know they are among the most vulnerable to the negative financial effects of the pandemic. With no way to cover expenses, workers like these will inevitably struggle to earn money for food and medicinal support.
For these two important reasons, reasons, it’s important to look at us, the blessed class of people who The Almighty has granted His Graces, and make a concrete initiative to help them get ahead of the crisis by starting to provide necessary support to individuals like these.
By our current estimates, the use of funds we foresee are as follows:
85% towards free preparation and food distribution, starting with a 100 percent initially.
15% percent towards medical supplies, thermometers, masks, gloves, soaps, sanitizers and social distancing devices
