COVID-19 Relief for Migrant Workers and Daily Wage Labourers
Seruds Relief Service during the COVID-19 Pandemic
India has been under restrictions since 25 March 2020 to control Covid-19 pandemic, causing mass layoffs and heavy job losses. Millions of desperate migrant workers, particularly daily-wage earners, facing starvation after losing jobs are fleeing cities on foot to return to their villages. Help promised by state governments in terms of cash transfers and free ration kit distribution has not reached many sections, due to the sheer numbers involved and lack of ration cards with migrant guest workers.
SERUDS in one of the leading ngos providing relief during covid-19 in Andhra Pradesh. SERUDS is providing cooked meals and grocery kits to the poor and jobless daily wage workers across Kurnool district.
We directly donate food, needy essentials to homeless people, and poor families impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus. Daily wage workers, migrant workers rendered jobless by the current COVID-19 pandemic and they need our timely support to prevent hunger.
Daily wage workers including auto drivers, domestic maids, plumbers, electricians, workers in petty shops, delivery boys, house helpers, and their financial well being will be directly impacted by their inability to earn their daily wage due to this epidemic coronavirus. Hunger and desperation prevail, and we can do something by donating cooked food and dry ration kit to these deprived.
Let’s fight corona together by extending our donations to such affected persons, in turn, help their families in this emergency disaster situation.
