Currently there are approximately between 700-800 women and their families stuck in Nagpur’s red light area and are facing a severe food crisis due to the lockdown. We received a report that only 150 have been supplied with provisions from the government. The rest are left to fend for themselves.
In Nagpur, Freedom Firm investigators, social workers, and the liaison officer have been connecting with individuals and organizations so that we can collectively support these areas. There is a group of people who have been distributing a provisions kit which consists of flour, rice, sugar, edible oil, tea powder, and bathing and washing soap.
