Giving Migrants in India a Second Chance

ICMC and its member, the Conference of Catholics Bishops of India (CCBI) continued to assist internal migrants who have been forced to return to their homes in northern India, after losing their jobs because of COVID-19.

Over 500 migrants took part in ICMC-CCBI’s outreach projects, which provided information on income-generating activities and funding, COVID-related social security and food schemes, and education opportunities for children whose families were affected by COVID. 236 participants were also provided bereavement support, and 220 benefited from healthcare advice. More than 300 persons benefited from entrepreneurial training, and 200 accessed start-up funding.
