There is acute anxiety in everyone right now, its an unknown discomfort that the world is feeling, and together in that collective grief we are trying to focus on things that make us feel more in-control, less helpless. So its about time we give it back to all of those who help us in ways immeasurable. Whether it is the rag pickers who vow to keep our cities clean, or those who cook for us but are unable to find a decent meal themselves, or our loyal furry friends who are locked out in the most catastrophic of ways.
There are multiple avenues through which one can help, whether it is through offering money – like a lot of celebrities are doing with the PM Cares Fund, or whether it is helping people on ground getting them shelters, and medical supplies, or whether it is helping them get day-to-day ration. Civil Society all over the country is trying endlessly to provide amenities to those who haven’t had the privilege to socially distance or self isolate themselves. If any of us are in a position to help them out, now is the time. Here is how you can help, wherever you are.
1. Daily Wage Workers
