Government and private sector efforts to support migrant workers have had limited impact to date. The bulk of relief efforts are being led by NGOs, local residents and individuals who have come forward to support migrants and daily wage workers during the lockdowns. Daily Wage Worker Platform in partnership with Bridge India organized a webinar on ‘Civil Society’s Response to the Migrant Worker Crisis’ on 15th July with a panel of enthusiasts including Rahul Roy (member of Gurgaon Nagrik Ekta Manch), Noel Madichetty (Director at Don Bosco Network), Vaishnavi (Volunteer in Stranded Worker’s Action Network) and Siddhartha Prakash (Founder of Daily Wage Worker Platform-DWW) with Priyanka Dahiya (Co-founder of DWW) as the moderator.
