After the Janta Curfew in Jhabua District, people have started migrating to the district, returning to their homes by foot from Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, due to lack of transportation resources. The district administration believes that about 4 to 5 lakh workers are returning to their homes. Considering such number of migrants, frontline workers have been instructed to keep the migrants in isolation in their homes and have also given advice to their fellow families members. There is no availability of daily supplies of ration such as oil, spices, vegetables and other essential materials due to lack of weekly haat market in this lockdown period.
In addition to this, individuals working in the district such as daily wagers, cart vendors, hoteliers, women who do work as maid, widow women who are heads of family in absence of men, women selling vegetables, householders who work as vehicle cleaners etc, these are the families who earn their bread on daily basis. These families depend on daily wages for ration, medicines and other essential items. But due to lockdown, they are not getting daily wages, due to which these families are facing the most difficulty. Ever since the lockdown started, many social organizations have been providing food in a very good way for the workers coming from urban areas and migrating, but due to lack of funds, their services are limited. These organizations are able to cater only a few families and that too for a limited time.
Sara Seva Sansthan Samiti has taken up the mission to distributing ration, food and medicines to the needy people particularly the underprivileged families.
Our target population for this cause are about 500 migrants/ daily wager families who are unable to access the food supplies in Jhabua District due to lockdown. We will be supplying them with the ration kits (worth Rs. 1000 per beneficiary) to include rice, wheat flour, pulses, vegetable oil,spices, salt and soaps.
We request your contribution in this cause so as to enable us to deliver these services to the needy families of district Jhabua.
