Surviving Corona in a Mumbai Slum. Annabhau Sathe Nagar Is a Lesson For All | COVID 19 | Maharashtra

People can’t go out to earn their living, food is scarce and whatever little is available costs twice the amount. In this time of crisis, it is the local social service organization that has come to the rescue by providing free food packets to hundreds of families every day.
