Initially the courts seemed inapproachable, with lawyers and affected people attempting to figure out how the would issues be raised in court and conducting proceedings through video conferencing. Slowly but steadily HRLN lawyers started filing cases in court beginning with one of the cases of providing relief to persons in prisons to migrant labourers to tackling a number of issues.
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.
