Celebrating Eid with migrant workers

The City-based NGO ‘I Am Still Human’ was celebrating Eid with migrant workers. India is a multi-cultural place. Every religion has plenty of its own festivals and occasions. Individuals prefer celebrating festivals with their family and friends.

However, several people migrate from their native place to other states in search of jobs. Such workers are unable to join their families during these festivals.

Eid-ul-Fitr is a mark for the end of the fasting month of Ramzan. Due to the pandemic, the celebrations of Eid were a low-key affair in the city.
