The Social Peace and Welfare Trust, Corlim, Old Goa came to the aid of the daily wage earners in and around Old Goa with the help of Old Goa police since March 26. Till date the trust has served more than 100 families with essential goods sufficient for a week besides serving cooked food to those who have no means to cook food.

The daily wage earners were suffering for want of essential goods/commodities in various areas of Old Goa. Hence the trust was formed to help needy labourers stranded in their rented rooms and have no means for survival in PDA Colony, Carambolim, Mangado areas of Old Goa.

The group contacted the Old Goa police and started the social work of distributing essential commodities enough for a week to each family and those who do not have means to cook in their rooms.

The trustees vowed to continue this social gesture and serve the daily wage earners till the lockdown is withdrawn.  The residents of Old Goa namely Imam Naikodi, Hassan Muzawar, Hussain Walikar, Azharuddin Padgi, Sadakat Naikodi, Irshad Mulla and others, came together when they saw the plight of the daily wage earners and decided to serve the community.

While in Alto-Betim area, where the construction of the High Court and other buildings is in progress nearly 150 to 200 construction workers are stranded as they have no means to travel to their native places. They are being looked after by the local MLA and former Revenue Minister, Rohan Khaunte through his political supporters.

A rickshaw loaded with rice, dal and other essential commodities were distributed to these daily wage workers by the MLA and NGOs.

The daily wage earners are willing to leave the state immediately and join their families but there is no means of transport, revealed Reyaz a labour contractor.
