NEW DELHI, Jan 25 (The CONNECT) - NGO Pararthya Sustainable Development & Environment Conservation Society, conducted Project Rahat helping migrant workers severely affected by winter season in a pandemic-stricken environment.

The initiative was dedicated to bring relief to the migrants of Delhi and NCR region who lost their jobs due to COVID-19.

According to the IMD, in the past decade the country has seen 506 percent increase in cold waves which accounted for increased number of deaths as compared to the heat waves. The major reason for the death is the unavailability of shelter and clothing to shield one from the cold waves.  

As part of the endeavour, four teams visited areas massively populated by people living on roadside, taking refuge at shelter homes or setting up their own jhuggis during the seven days drive. Soaps, sanitizers, masks and water bottles were distributed that was perfectly complimented by providing them with guidance for proper sanitizing practices, the correct way to wear mask and how to effectively practice social distancing.

“Continuing the humanitarian legacy, at Pararthya we were determined to extend our support to the suffering working section of the society for which ‘Project Rahat’ was incepted to save the lives lost due to the extreme winters,” said Ankit Aditya Pradhan, Founder & CEO, Realty Assistant.

Along with this, as part of the donation drive, over 200 blankets, 500 warm clothes, 500 soaps, 300 sanitizers, 500 masks, 100 bread packets, and biscuits and toffees were also distributed.
