Video Volunteers community correspondent Amol Lalzare reports from Chembur, Mumbai where migrants, who had returned to their villages during the COVID-19 lockdown, are back and are struggling for survival. Amol spoke to a migrant family who lives under a flyover and sells balloons for a living.

In times of social distancing and hygiene consciousness, their business has suffered. All their savings have been used up surviving the lockdown. Now they live under a flyover and cook by the roadside. Mumbai based social organisations are urged to help poor migrants in times of crisis.
