The Coronavirus pandemic has caused devastation across the globe. Besides the tragic toll on human life, with countries shutting their borders and quarantines, economies have taken a huge hit. The tragedy has just begun to unfold in India and the job losses are mounting, especially among the daily wage workers. Experts say the effect on this group will be catastrophic.
Coronavirus is an international disaster on the scale of the Second World War. Housejoy in association with GiveIndia has launched this campaign as an emergency response - to help provide a safety net to our network of plumbers, carpenters, beauticians, electricians, cleaners, etc. We aim to directly support these families by providing a minimum wage in cash, hopefully with your support till the virus abates and they are in employment again.
These unemployed individuals have been duly verified by GiveIndia. The whole world is suffering - and is trying to cope with huge losses. But those without any job security or savings are the most vulnerable. Give generously to those who help us every day.
