With limited engaging local opportunities, migration often becomes the preferred option.

‘Although a couple of oganisations came to distribute relief material, we were not able to access it as we were left behind due to old age. CARE India identified us and came to our doorstep to distribure relief kits. We felt that there is more than enough for us to survive in this difficult situation and were extremely happy that someone thought about us.’
