Over the last few weeks, the novel corona virus (Covid-19) has rapidly spread across the globe, affecting nearly all the countries, including India. From the most progressive countries to undeveloped countries, the pandemic has affected millions of lives and still, it is spreading further.
The government has been actively working towards controlling the outbreak. While a severe lock-down has been put in all states as a major preventive step. A large segment of the unrecognized sector i.e. construction workers, daily wages labor, street vendors, industrial workers do not have the necessary resources to survive, as we all know the vast majority of work in India is in the informal sectors. They rely on their daily wages for their bread and butter. These marginalized communities are already at the edge of despair as they don’t have proper homes, availability of resources, or adequacy of income. Most of them have exhausted their ration supplies while their children, who most of the time rely on mid-day meals have also stopped since many schools have shut down, bringing them on the Verge of starvation.
