Help Provide Women Domestic Workers & their Families with Life-Saving Relief

Women domestic workers and their families are struggling for survival in the second wave. They have no jobs and no savings, as they spent most of the last year unemployed.

With no money to buy food, they're also unable to afford getting tested or getting treatment, even as many of them begin falling sick. As they are breadwinners, hunger and sickness are looming large in their families.

Join our mission to provide food and basic sanitary material to them and their families. Your contribution will prove to be life saving. Just ₹1,500 will safeguard one family from hunger and sickness for one month.

We will share updates with you about the relief here, and via email.

The donation drive by the Martha Farrell Foundation is for women, by women and to women. A team of women leads the planning, and a team of women domestic workers from the community are supporting with data collection and ration distribution.
