Don Bosco PYaR in Support of the Migrants in Kalaburagi

The recent COVID 19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns tremendously impacted the lives of migrant labourers from Chhattisgarh, who had been working in Kalaburagi in construction sites. Their attempts to return to their native state failed due to the strict lockdowns. Fortunately, the lifting of the lockdown and the commencement of train services relieved their pain and they finally were allowed to travel on 10 June 2020 from Kalaburagi.

Don Bosco Programme for Young at Risk (PYaR) and BREADS supported 40 migrant labourers with grocery kits when they boarded their train to return home. The food and groceries would ensure that they and their families survived the journey intact while also helping them to survive a few days when they reached home. This timely gesture of DB PYaR was appreciated by the Kalaburagi railway authorities.
