Gujarath, 03 April 2020
The Fishermen community people from Arivalasa village, Ranasthalam, Srikakulam of Andhra Pradesh went to Somanth, Gujarat State as crew to work in fishing boats. Due to Covid-19 lockdown fishing activities are stopped and they can’t go back to their homes. The boat owners could take care of them for few days and then took them to the district collector Somnath. No support from the district administration has been received so far and these workers and their families are more than 5000 members with no food, water and shelter. NAF kindly requested CM of Gujarath to help them with food and send them back as soon as the lockdown is over to their residences.
