Provisions kits, masks and sanitizers were distributed to 200 families of released bonded-laboureres at Thuraiur Block in Trichy District.
In this time of lock-down due to Covid19, people especially the poor and the marginalized, have lost their livelihood, forced into frustrations and anxieties without food for their daily living. The families of the daily-wage workers are at a loss, not knowing how to cope up with the current situation.
The province of Tiruchy has reached out to people of these categories namely, stranded migrants, tribal people, home-maids, health-sanitary workers, abandoned elders, visually impaired people, providing them groceries, food packets, medicines and health sanitary materials. More than twenty thousand families are benefitted through these relief works.
In addition to the relief services, the province has identified 200 families of released bonded-laboureres, who are settled at the foot of the hill in Thuraiur Taluk of Trichy district. These families were most affected as the area was considered to be a red-zone and the confinement was too strict. These daily wage-workers who are involved in stone-cutting, are now without any work and without their daily food.
Having come to know this situation of these people, the province with due permission from the collectorate and with the cordial collaboration of the local Thashildar, reached the spot and distributed 200 provision kits to the families of MGR.Nagar and Anna Nagar Adivaram, following all the rules of self-distancing. The government officials under the leaders of the local Thahildar were present all through the distribution ensuring the safety of all. The impact of inconveniences caused by Covid19, was very much visible in their grim-struck faces as these poor people received the groceries with great sense of gratitude.
