NEW DELHI: The children of migrant labourers are very much vulnerable to the current situation of COVID-19 as well as the exodus in Delhi.
The observation report of the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) reads that daily wagers and their families including small children who are leaving Delhi are worst hit by the pandemic and they are more likely to die of hunger than from Coronavirus.
"We have met over 130 families living near construction sites, asking them not to leave Delhi and that they will be provided with help.
We are also informing them about steps taken by the Delhi government for their safety and food," DCPCR official said.
According to the observation report of the child rights body, a lot of families including children are stuck somewhere and need immediate support in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
