The COVID-19 crisis proved to be too cruel on daily wagers who were away from home. The worst hit were the migrant workers as most of them were left jobless due to the lockdown. While many have managed to reach home somehow, others are still left stranded in the city. Taking note of the situation, Amitabh Bachchan has come forward to help migrant workers in Maharashtra to reach their homes in UP.
He arranged for 10 buses to send migrant workers from Mumbai back to different parts of Uttar Pradesh. Big B also has been reportedly distributing 4500 cooked food packets everyday at various locations in Mumbai city in collaboration with Haji Ali Trust and Pir Makhdum Saheb Trust. He has been doing it since March 28.
So far, Big B has also distributed 10,000 ration packets to date and has provided masks, PPE kits, sanitisers and more to hospitals and police in Mumbai.
