In a bid to bring relief to such migrant brothers and sisters, Jai Odisha helped out by providing temporary accommodation, food and transportation to such people. With the intent to strengthen the efforts of the local authorities and by working closely with them, Jai Odisha is able to successfully help the migrant workers reach their destination.
