Support Street Vendors Of Chennai During COVID-19 Lockdown

“தெரு விற்பனையாளர் நண்பர்களுக்கு உதவுவோம். 
மாத வருமானத்தை உறுதிப்படுத்துவோம்! ”

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the whole world to a screeching halt. While many of us are able to afford working from home or dip into our savings, the reality is quite bleak for daily wage earners who live hand-to-mouth. They solely depend on their daily income for survival, which has become zero due to the month-long nation-wide lockdown.

There are approximately 3000+ registered street vendors in Chennai whose businesses are shut down during the lockdown. Though they are receiving dry rations & rent concessions from the Government, it is not enough to make ends meet. These families will continue to bear the brunt, long after the lockdown is lifted.

UWC has identified 300 such families who are in dire need of your help to help sustain their families. We seek to provide financial aid equivalent to 1 month’s pay for them.

  • Target Families: 300
  • To help 1 affected daily wage earner & family in a Tier – I city: ₹ 7000
  • To help 1 affected daily wage earner & family in a Tier – II city: ₹ 5000

This basic income will help them pay for essentials such as food, water, medicines, electricity, and so on.

We have already supported 25 differently-abled bunk shop owners whose small businesses we helped set up last year. For the remaining families also, we will be transferring the funds raised directly to them through bank transfers.

We request you to donate generously and help the daily wage earners in our city tide through these difficult times. We will communicate back to you on how many people have been benefitted along with their profiles to ensure complete accountability.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thank you so much for your generous contribution. We've been able to support more than 400 families across Tamil Nadu since the start of this campaign 3 months ago. We're so thrilled to receive support from changemakers like you. We're continuously identifying, raising funds & supporting vendors.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support.

UWC will be using these funds to directly transfer a month's pay to 50+ street vendors. We have verified the beneficiaries via phone and have collected details like their UID No., Aadhar Card No. as well as their bank account details to ensure the money is reaching the right person. So far we have withdrawn around 4L from the funds collected.

Thank you all again.

Please keep supporting.
