After Rajkumar, other personalities from the industry also joined in to start a chain of action for the benefit of all those daily wage workers across the nation who can be rightly called the second family. The initiative by the spiritual guru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar aims to support a family with 10 days of essential food supplies. The initiative requires the individual to sponsor a bag of ration of the value, Rs 1000. This could be donated online and comes as a great relief to all those whose work and livelihood has been affected.
Coronavirus is creating a deadly impact on lives, worldwide. India too, is facing the wrath of this virus and most hurtful is the impact on the daily wage earners across the different industries. These earners are the backbone of the society and are the reason, one can live safely in the comfort of their homes. In an attempt to protect the livelihood of the daily wage earners across the nation, the foundation launched #iStandWithHumanity, a campaign to encourage people to come forward and donate towards protecting the livelihood of those who protect us.
Helping the daily wage workers all across, the initiative is definitely the need of the hour. The daily wage workers are the ones who are suffering, economically. This initiative definitely comes as a great relief and a tribute to the efforts of those who support every sphere and machinery, nationwide.
