[Urgent] – Support for the Sewer Workers & Waste Pickers (Daily wagers, labourers /contractual workers) of Delhi NCR!

Sewer Workers

(Asian independent) Dalit Adivasi Shakti Adhikar Manch (DASAM) has been working in close association with Sewer workers and Waste Pickers on their issues. India is facing brunt of Covid 19 second wave. Covid 19 second wave is attacking millions of people every day. Lockdown by various states have been announced. Delhi NCR has been locked down since April 19, 2021.

Due to the frightful spread of Covid 19, humanitarian aid have been limited. Many concerned citizens and organizations came forward to reach out and help people struggling to get supplies of oxygen and hospital beds. Owing to India’s size and population, it is very difficult for anyone to reach to everyone.

Most of the Sewer Workers and Waste Pickers in Delhi are Daily wagers who used to earn hand to mouth. Delhi has unofficially many sewer workers and waste pickers. They all are struggling due to the lockdown.

DASAM plans to:

  • Provide monetary assistance to the families of Sewer Worker and Waste Pickers- thus enabling them to buy milk (for young children), medicines, gas supply, oil, soap etc. by their own. Each worker will be given a sum of Rs 1000/- only.

The monetary assistance will be given to only verified people.  We aim to provide for minimum 200 (100 sewer workers and 100 waste workers) families located in Delhi- NCR. If we are able to raise more amount, we will reach out to more.

  • Provide dry ration to (50) Sewer Worker and (50) Waste Pickers family.

We need your help and financial support to sustain and expand this effort. We are writing this appeal to come forward and help those in need. Any amount you choose to give will be appreciated.
