Initially the courts seemed inapproachable, with lawyers and affected people attempting to figure out how the would issues be raised in court and proceedings would be conducted through video conferencing. Slowly but steadily HRLN lawyers started filing cases in court, one of the first cases filed were to provide relief to persons in prisons, which was followed closely with cases filed to address issues faced by migrant labourers.
Parallelly being socially conscious individuals lawyers and social activists realized the importance of giving direct aid to persons, lawyers and activists were involved in distribution of dry ration and grains, distribution of masks and sanitizers and in a number of places distribution of cooked food for those who were in urgent need of food. Through the network and through various partners, HRLN covered various marginalized populations including PLHIV, Transgender Persons, persons living in slums, migrant labourers among a range of people across the country
HRLN Lawyers and activists have been providing assistance, in terms of financial and other kinds of assistance through their own pockets and through partnering with organisations. It would be extremely helpful if you could donate any sum of money for the work that HRLN is doing. Every sum counts.
