|We at rising FOR CAUSE, group of 200+ self-motivated members in Delhi/ Chandigarh/ Bihar/Jharkhand /Mumbai are doing their bit of feeding all who are on roads with their families and standing with the hundreds who have lost their lives on the road home.Tens of thousands of daily-wage migrant workers suddenly found themselves without jobs or a source of income when India announced a lockdown on 24 March.|
Overnight, the cities they had helped build and run seemed to have turned their backs on them, the trains and buses which should have carried them home suspended.
So with the looming fear of hunger, men, women and children were forced to begin arduous journeys back to their villages - cycling or hitching rides on tuk-tuks, lorries, water tankers and milk vans.
For many, walking was the only option. Some travelled for a few hundred kilometres, while others covered more than a thousand to go home.
The cost for 1 Relief Kit for a family of 4 to sustain them for 1 week is Rs. 500 and with your help, we can help them survive this pandemic.
We urge you to help save the lives of the homeless starving vulnerable families and spread the word about the immediate help they need. We are updating our Twitter to show the progress.
They weren't always alone - some had young children and others had pregnant wives, and the life they had built for themselves packed into their ragtag bags.
KIndly Help, RISE FOR CAUSE to continue the support in this hour.
