COVID-19 has turned out to be one of the biggest tragedies of the decade. The pandemic has taken the lives of millions of people across the globe and India too has lost thousands of citizens to date. More than 180 migrant workers have been killed in road accidents with more than 750 seriously injured while walking to their homes which are 1000s of Km away. Even as you read this article, thousands of migrants are walking with little hope of finally resting in the comfort of their homes.Taking cognizance of the high number of accidents, SaveLIFE Foundation began working on ferrying the migrants to their respective states from Delhi.
“The number of reported road crashes may be less amid lockdown, but the rate of deaths remains same, with the majority being migrants and essential workers and we wish to help them in our little ways, reaching out to as many guest workers as possible,” says Piyush Tewari, founder, SaveLIFE Foundation.
In the last few weeks SaveLife Foundation (SLF) has provided buses to 100s of migrants so that they reach their homes safely.Donate to send more migrants home safely : www.bit.ly/slfdelhi#TogetherWeCan #EffortsForGood
