Millions of stranded migrant workers are starving in India during the pandemic.
Tens of thousands of workers from various Indian states are living in Chennai, the capital of south Indian state Tamilnadu. When the 60 day lock down was imposed suddenly by the Indian government, many workers were stranded because of transport shutdown and remain trapped in overcrowded accomodations in Chennai. These workers depend on daily wages for their groceries. Due to non payment of wages, they are not able to buy groceries and are starving.
EKAMUSA will provide groceries for migrant workers and poor
Due to the restriction imposed on movement, people, especially the vulnerable section of the society e.g., daily wage workers, sick and elderly are starving due to joblessness and lack of transportation.
Ekam, a non profit organization, identifies migrant worker families , homeless and elderly and through the help of funds raised by the donors, provides 1 month worth groceries with the help of local team and network of volunteers.
$21 donation would support provide provision for 1 month/person.
we plan to donate 1 months worth groceries to 150 people to help them support during the lock down. we plan to provide 1,month supply of rice, oil,vegetables, lentils etc to support these families during lock down.

This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.
