The rural migrant workers and seasonal labourers set back to the villages with families. These daily wage workers are suffering a lot with no income, no works as people stay at home because of lockdown. Global Ehsan Relief distributed food aid for the worth of LKR 4500 to 300 families who are vulnerable and panhandlers. This project was funded by the GER worldwide team in Singapore to its country office.
