Though the second wave of Covid-19 and lockdown have been abating, we are still working on relief work in slums of Kamptee, Nagpur, India.

Here, daily wagers are still finding it difficult to get jobs, and earnings to manage their everyday lives. It is difficult for them to cope with the expenses for children’s online classes/school, food, and other necessary things. People are in need of help.

Here is a film shot in a slum called Alamnagar, Kamptee. We are working in 24 slums...
