NGO fills stomachs of those with their back to the wall
Their mornings were spent in front of a closed health clinic surrounded by trash of all kinds. The nights were spent on a bedsheet spread under the flyover in Surathkal.
This had become a routine for the couple, Santosh and Bhavani, who had been stranded in Surathkal for the past 10 days due to the lockdown. The couple from Belagavi were working at a restaurant at Kadiyali in Udupi. Santosh was working as a watchman and Bhavani used to wash dishes. They were paid Rs 18,000 and provided accommodation in the restaurant.
After the lockdown was announced, the restaurant was closed.
