These are difficult times, especially for migrant workers. To deal with the crisis at our level, the JJSS has adopted a three prong strategy: one, connecting migrant workers from Bihar-Jharkhand stuck in different places across the country to access basics like food and dry rations through our common networks, two, providing dry rations to members of the organisation embedded in their own communities and ensure they get their entitlements and three, lobbying with the government for rations to all.

Here is Brahmanand Rishidev writing on, 16th April, 2020, on helping his village people access rations being provided by the government as part of its COVID relief strategy “आज खरहट पंचायत वाडव 5  मे राशन वितरण डीलर किया पहले तो कम राशन लेकर लाभुक घर आए फिर जब पूछा तो पता चला कि काड पर 5 युनिट है तो 25 किलो पैसे देकर राशन कार्ड पर 10 किलो फ्री दे कर भेज रहे थे।फिर हम डीलर से बात किए और हम फिर सभी लाभुक को डीलर के फास भेजकर की जितना राशन कार्ड पर देना है।उतना राशन फ्री सबको लेना है, फिर सब द्वारा राशन लेकर आए ।जिन्दाबाद ब्रह्मानंद”
