Challenge

With non-essential workers forced to stay home in India, daily wage workers, most of who live in slums are being hit hard. Cases of trafficking and domestic violence are also increasing and, with many businesses and government offices closed or reduced, there is very limited access to support services. Police blockades and a lack of public transport are also making it difficult for those seeking medical attention and migrant workers trying to walk thousands of miles home to reach their families.

Solution

Snehalaya has committed to providing the 17,000 families living in Ahmednagar's 17 official slums with enough food to see them through this crisis. We are operating a helpline for those needing support and are working to support women and children during and post lock down to counteract the current rise in domestic violence cases and anticipated child trafficking cases. We are also providing vital support to migrant workers on the roadside to enable them to reach their families and homes.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting daily wage workers and other vulnerable groups we will improve their chances of surviving the pandemic crisis and reduce the number of people requiring our help once the crisis ends. We will also feed the 17,000 people living in our slums. We aim to support migrant workers trying to get home and reunite them with their families. We will also provide women and children with the help and services they need in order to rebuild their lives long after this pandemic has been contained.
