Migrant Workers from Jharkhand Taken Care of By Villagers in Chhattisgarh – An Inspiring Story | COIVID 19 | Chattisgarh

Yet another inspiring story of people taking care of each other in the current crisis. 15 workers from Jharkhand were brought to Saraipali panchayat in Chhattisgarh by a contractor to work on electricity towers.

When the lockdown was declared the contractor took off without making any arrangements for these workers and they were stranded in Saraipali. But villagers got together with a determination that they will not let anyone go hungry.

Today, these workers are all taken care of by the village with the help of the local administration. A school is converted into an isolation centre. A doctor comes in for regular check-ups and fresh food is cooked for them every day.
