Determined to Reach Home
Soon after the mandatory lockdown, Indira, a migrant worker set out on her journey back home from Pokhran in Rajasthan. She had to cover a distance of more than 650 kilometres to reach her hometown in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh. And, with an eight-month old in her womb, her journey was indeed strenuous.
Mid-way through the journey, she found shelter at Maheswari Seva Sadan where she could rest. This temporary shelter was set up at Nathdwara to help many such migrants. The Akshaya Patra Foundation had been serving freshly prepared lunch and dinner at this place as a part of its food relief operations in Nathdwara since 6 April 2020.
Having a roof overhead and fresh food to nourish Indira and her soon-to-be-born child, she finally found relief amidst chaos. Very recently, the Government arranged for her safe travel to Ratlam.
Indira is one among many thousands who are worst-affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. They are in dire need of our support. Contribute towards food relief service and bring indescribable relief to people in need.
