Amid the coronavirus outbreak in the country, as citizens follow the strict 21-days lockdown by the government, daily wage earners continue to struggle for their livelihood. Considering the entire nation is observing this lockdown period, there's no means of earning for these daily wage labourers and they'd continue to struggle till the situation calms down. While state governments have set up relief funds asking the citizens to donate any amount they can afford, celebrities too are generously donating to lend a helping hand.
