NH-44 meedha 1000s of migrants workers unnaru, Who are hopelessly trying to reach home without any help. To help these migrants with some basic food, A team of school teachers and senior citizens have been working continuously in helping these migrants stuck on highways. A.Ganga Reddy, collected this information, took it to Facebook and helped this reach a lot of people.
Dr Naveen, Naresh and their friends have been helping migrants at Indalwai tollgate. Senior citizen Rajesh Sharma is helping migrants at Armoor junction. Headmaster Rajeswar & 100 other teachers are helping people stuck between Armoor-Perkit junction to Busapur. An Anganwadi teacher, Ameena Begum is helping migrants near Mupkal junction. And Harpal Singh is feeding the migrants near Adilabad junction.
Ee paina list lo cheppina people antha gatha 40 days ga NH-44 meedha help offer chestunnaru. With their own money.
These people start their activity at 5AM in the morning and it goes on till 8PM. They have rotis prepared with them to provide to the migrants coming their way on highway.
Mari at the end of the day, Ee migrants ki kavalsindi, Vaalla vaalla homwtowns ki cherukovadam. So, These teachers wave towards the lorry drivers coming their way with food, So that the drivers stop the vehicle and have some food there. Mari ah aagina lorry lo ne migrants ni ekkinchi, Vaaallaki help chestunnaru.
Meals, Water packets, Butter milk, Glucose are a few things that are being provided to migrants and lorry drivers. Daarilo vastunna lorries lo unna space batti, Avi velthunna daari batti. Migrants ni vaari vaari hometowns ki cherchatam lo help chestunnaru.
But the thing is, They’ve been doing this since weeks now. 100s of migrants are coming in everyday. And Veella deggara funds aipoyay. So if we can just contribute them just by sitting at home. It would be a great help to the migrant families.

Food Camp – NH 44
Food Camp run by teachers at perkit junction, Nizamabad district
Around 100 plus teachers, under the guidance of MEO Battu Rajeshwar garu, have been running food camp for migrant workers on NH-44 at Perkit junction . Everyday 8,000 plus migrant workers are traveling on NH-44 to reach their homes in North India .
Since they have been running food centre here for a long time with their own expenditure, they are running out of funds now. So they need more funds to continue the services.
As per the teachers’ experience and calculations , the budget required to run a food centre
1. Everyday , For 1200 migrant workers – 1200 food packets needed
2. Each food packet consists – three Chapatis , one curry , two water packets and a buttermilk packet
3. For for each packet, it costs : 15 Rupees
For 1200 packets, it costs: 18,000
So for another 10 days we can cover 12 thousand people -it costs : 1,80,00
4. Additional food help for for women and children = 20,000
5. 100 plus teachers and 30 women cooks are working voluntarily .
6. So to run a food camp for 15 days continuously, we need 2 lakhs .
7. Our plan is to run three food camps ( Perkit junction , Mupkal , Pochampad )
8. Food packets will be distributed in 3 shifts -morning -400, afternoon -300 , evening -500
From yesterday’s facebook article, in one day we have gathered 2,46,245 ( Two lakhs plus ) by 1 pm . With this amount, they can run one food camp only .
So, they need another 3.5 Lakhs to run two more food camps.
