Millions of migrant workers are leaving Delhi and trekking back to their homes in villages during the COVID-19 lockdown.  The backbone of the country's capital city, these have contributed immensely to the city's economy. Building houses, selling vegetables and fruits, making and repairing automobiles, cooking food, serving in hotels and eateries, delivering takeaways, working in salons, delivering newspapers, and driving vehicles, these are people who had  in the past moved away from their villages to escape poverty and migrated to Delhi. A vast majority of these live in small houses, in congested areas and aspire for upward mobility. The lockdown has turned them into refugees overnight. Their workplaces are shut, and most employees or contractors who paid them have vanished.

Don Bosco Ashalayam, New Delhi has been responding to the immediate needs of these vulnerable workers and families during the past 40 days  with Father Swanoop Chaudhury, Director Ashalayam,Father Bhushan Paul, Father Bimal Kerketta and Bro Anup Ranjan daring to continue the humanitarian effort of providing relief to the vulnerable in Delhi.
