Andhra Pradesh Relief Work

India’s lockdown caught millions of poor families off-guard and left migrant workers unable to earn or to get home, let alone stay home.

AID-India and partners have been identifying families in need of help to survive the lockdown and providing food and essential supplies, a week’s worth at a time to reach as many as possible.  In Andhra Pradesh they have also started a helpline for stranded migrants to find shelter.

AID Responds to COVID Donate to COVID Relief Fund


April 3 2020, Kiran Vissa reports

The searing images of lakhs of migrant workers walking hundreds of kilometres home must have hit all of you! Here are some images of how we are addressing the enormous crisis being faced by migrant workers, destitute and the poor due to the lockdown. Even after 10 days, many of them are still out of govt support systems. But the priceless joy on the face of the adivasi woman eating after a day – from Odisha stuck in A.P. – is worth all the efforts being put in to reach out!

300 families – mostly Adivasis from Odisha working in Brick Kilns near Anakapalle (A.P.) Completely out of food, completely out of work, and no ‘ration cards’ in A.P. We distributed food supplies for 2 weeks. Similarly, Maharashtra migrants in Anantapur, Jharkhand migrants in Chennai, Bihar workers in Mumbai, Bengali workers in other states… are all being helped.
