‘Vision 2026’ Supports Chand Muhammad

21/06/2020 (New Delhi): ‘Vision 2026’ extends its support to Chand Muhammad, a class 10 pass out, from Seelampur in Northeast Delhi, who was reported handling bodies of those dying of coronavirus for mother’s medicines and siblings’ school fees.


Soon after the report was published, representatives of the Human Welfare Foundation under ‘Vision 2026’, New Delhi met the 20-year-old boy and his family and assured full financial aid for his and his sisters’ education and mother’s treatment. Also, we provided ration for the family as they have been struggling to survive since Chand’s father Mohammed Momin, a daily labor, and elder brother Sakib (27), a salesman, lost their job during the lockdown. Further, Vision will support his brother for a livelihood by providing financial assistance for starting a garment shop. He has four sisters Rafia (18), Muskan (16), Sadaf (14) and Mehad (11) among them later three are in school.

Chand Muhammad passed out from class 1o in 2017 and discontinued schooling due to a financial crisis and worked as Nursing Assistant in a private hospital. A week ago, he joined a company that deployed him as a sweeper at Lok Nayak Hospital. The job requires him to handle the bodies of those dying of coronavirus. His mother suffers from a thyroid disorder, but the family does not have the means for the treatment. The family has been surviving on ration provided by neighbours. Chand’s family is worried about his safety, but they are also aware that this is the only way for them to survive at present.

“There is a possibility that we may survive the virus, but we cannot escape hunger,” says Chand. He took the job after exhausted all his options to find work. “This is a dangerous job, as I am at a higher risk of contracting the infection, but I need the job.
Our family, including three sisters, two brothers and parents, is struggling without money. Right now, we need food and medicines for my mother” he says.
