AITWA Became the Helping Hand to the stranded DRIVERS in the Lockdown
Sudden lockdown imposed by the government of India due toCOVID-19 situation, the entire nation came to standstill at the end of March 2020.
The trucking industry also came under the spell of this pandemic. Drivers of good carriers had to halt their vehicles exactly there where they were at that time, just on the roadside of highways.
Neither food nor water was available, as no Dhabas were open; no eateries were there to serve commuters. People found themselves alone to face this problem. At this moment of crisis, the All India Transporters’ Welfare Association (AITWA) raised its hand and come forward to serve the stranded drivers. AITWA distributed food and water to the starved drivers. This social work was realized with the financial help of the RPG Foundation, Indian Oil, Eicher and Shree Ram Finance.
And, it was initiated across India, in different cities.AITWA officials and members planned and executed the social event, and managed food and water distribution to the drivers.
