Livelihood support to daily wagers

Livelihood support to daily wagers

Long lockdown and loss of livelihood amidst social distancing rules are disproportionately affecting migrant workers, daily wage-earners, the urban poor and other vulnerable groups. Hunger, lack of sanitary kits and loss of income to buy basic essentials have left many helpless.

Beyond the very obvious risks to physical health and to the economy, the epidemic is also affecting people’s social connectedness, their trust in people and institutions, their jobs and incomes, as well as imposing a huge toll in terms of anxiety and worry. COVID-19 is hitting at a time where inequality and social pressures are high; and many people and communities continue to be left behind despite the improvement of average living conditions in the past many years or so.

Alongside national initiatives like the PM Cares Fund, grassroots non-profits, citizen groups, civil society organizations and even individuals are coming together to help those on the margins fight COVID-19 and hunger. The National lockdown to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the problems of food, nutrition, and livelihood security confronting a large number of rural people, in particular, migrants to cities. While some measures have been announced, we need to understand the different dimensions of the huge underprivileged population in a holistic manner in order to address this problem in its totality.

Let’s support organizations like us working on the ground to provide COVID-19 relief and aid! Contribute to any of the organizations to support India’s fight against the coronavirus and help the less privileged during this lockdown.
