Our nation finds itself in desperate times as the Coronavirus pandemic makes its way around the world. While the lock-down response aims to control the spread of the virus in India, unfortunately most daily wage workers are vulnerable now more than ever without access to livelihood, food and medical care, while being away from their families when they need them the most.
Through the Brigade Foundation, Brigade has allocated ₹2.5 Crores on an immediate basis, towards the welfare of 10,000 construction workers who have been forced to stop working. In addition, Brigade has contributed Rs.10 lakhs towards the Chief Minister Relief Fund COVID-19. They are allocating these funds across multiple outreach efforts, including direct provision of daily rations, sponsoring 60,000 meals through Akshaya Patra, and wherever possible, direct transfer payments to their Jan Dhan accounts. They are making all efforts to keep the construction workers motivated, safe and healthy, by conducting counselling sessions and exercise sessions to stay mentally and physically active.
Over the course of the coming weeks, they will continue to monitor how best help and support to those most affected by the pandemic and resulting economic impact can be provided. Their response will aim to address those aspects of welfare that may not be possible to meet as part of an official government outreach.
