Help Those Who Have Fallen Through the Cracks Survive The Lockdown

ESG Team, in coordination with various civil society organisations and trade unions, has been assisting stranded migrant workers, daily wagers, urban poor, pastoralists and rural poor survive the lock-down.

We assist them to continue living a dignified life through the pandemic lock-down.

This means they do not have to depend on daily handouts. We provide them at least two weeks of dry rations.

With the lock-down extended, they now need more help.
