AROUND 40 MILLION MIGRANT DAILY-WAGE WORKERS HAVE BEEN HIT HARD BY COVID-19 induced economic distress, lockdowns, travel bans and social distancing requirements. As they reach home, enduring unprecedented ordeals, they face the risk of hunger, indebtedness and prolonged unemployment. Their families face high infection risk and their children, particularly girls, the loss of learning.
As first responders, AIF has served close to 420,000 people across 17 states of India and has now joined hands with NDTV* to raise awareness and resources to complement the government’s efforts to rehabilitate migrant families.
