In the times of a global health crisis that we are facing, one of the only ways to stop the spreading of the COVID-19 virus is to limit contact of people. India imposed a nationwide lockdown on March 24 in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, a lockdown for the poor and vulnerable communities means no work, no income and no food or shops to attain basic essentials from.

Panipat in Haryana is one of the biggest hubs of textile factories and thus attracts a lot of migrated families who come here for job opportunities. When the nearly three-week lockdown in the nation was announced, several of these migrant families panicked and wanted to leave the state. Borders were already sealed by this time and there was no way they could have reached their hometowns. Members of HPPI’s Child Rights Protection Force (CRPF)— members who sensitise parents and factory owners in Panipat about the significance of education, along with the project team of HPPI’s Action Against Child Labour project that runs in Panipat and community members came together in this time of crisis and ensured that no family goes hungry or has to leave the state due to food scarcity.

Starting March 26, the project team in Panipat mobilised resources to assist the migrant families covered under the wards where the project runs, by providing them essential food items, sufficient to last the lockdown period. In ward numbers 1, 2 and 3 of the district, the project team distributed food items to 150 families while sensitising them about the various precautionary measures needed to cut the infection chain. These actions were done keeping in mind all the precautionary measures laid out by the government. It is the need of the hour for people to unite and help each other and in Panipat, HPPI is joining hands with civic bodies and social organisations to do the same. Similar actions and initiatives have also been initiated in several other projects run by HPPI across states in India.
