Given the immense hardships that have accompanied the pandemic-induced lockdown, every segment of society has suffered, specifically the sex workers whose livelihoods have come to a standstill. Even the occasionally available customers have been taking advantage of the situation and there has been an increase in the instances of abuse and violence during the past year. This has increased the hardships of the sex workers as they find it extremely difficult to pay their rent, buy food supplies, and educate their children given the lack of access to smartphones and Wifi networks. Therefore, we, at Girl Up Delhi Coalition, are collaborating with Kat-Katha for our fundraiser “Hifaazat”. We will be raising funds for the empowerment of sex workers and their children, and the funds would be utilised for Kat-Katha’s wonderful initiative called “HeART Shala”, which includes the creation of beautiful hand-tailored products by the sex workers, providing them with an opportunity to undertake an alternate livelihood and move out of brothels to start a new dignified life.
