The garbage cleaners and rag pickers are of critical importance in keeping our city clean. However, this segment is the most overlooked when it comes to quality of life and often they don’t even have access to basic sanitation, hygiene and safety facilities.
Our first step towards our aim of improving the quality of life for the garbage cleaners of Mumbai was to provide them with clean drinking water. The water purifiers donated by Clean-Up Foundation were installed at multiple Chowkis across Bandra, Khar and Santacruz, ensuring clean drinking water availability for over 12,000 garbage cleaners in Mumbai. Later, in association with MCGM, we provided the rag pickers at H West Ward with safety gear for monsoons, provided them with healthy meals, assisted them with financial aid for children’s education and also enhanced hygiene levels via installing of sanitary pad vending machine. More recently, we organized a mental health awareness session for them, with tips on how to cope with the uncertain times with the COVID 19 backdrop.
We aspire to target various such locations that shall help the true heroes of Bombay, the cleaners and rag pickers. We seek your donations to help us in achieving this.
