    This fundraiser will benefit

    trans people and migrant workers

    from Koch Bihar, West Bengal

Bengal is struggling. In the deadly second wave of the pandemic, migrant workers and trans people in rural north Bengal are already seeing a significant reduction in daily income, which they depend on for their livelihoods. With cases rising, things will only get worse.

I am a trans activist working with a voluntary collective that will provide kits and basic provisions to see as many people as they can reach through these difficult times. Please contribute and share widely. We need your help now.
The poorly planned, hastily announced national lockdown was disastrous for so many people last year. This time, with the ferocious new wave of cases across India, and the way the disease is spreading in election-hit Bengal, the lockdown hasn't even been announced yet and livelihoods have already been hit.

We have gone to Aliporeduar today to give basic kits with masks and medication to trans communities there. With the funds raised from this round of fundraising, a group of volunteers will distribute basic provisions to trans folks and migrant workers in rural north Bengal to mitigate some of the horrific impacts this wave is having.

Please give what you can – and even if you can't give right now, sharing would be hugely helpful. Thank you.
