Many women from Jharkhand and Chattisgarh, who work in metropolitan cities as domestic helps will soon be benefited by health insurance.
This was reported by indiatimes.com.
These women earn money for the upkeep and education of their brothers and their families. They help establish their brothers and take care of old parents and other relatives.
The coordinator of the Domestic Workers' Welfare Trust, Sister Jemma, has now stepped in to provide them and their families with health insurance and BPL (Below Poverty Line) benefits.
This will be achieved with the help of the state welfare departments of Jharkhand and Chattisgarh.
Sister Jemma has been in charge of the trust here since 2001. She has identified nearly 1500 girls from different parts of the state, who have been working as domestic help for a paltry sum.
She has registered them with her trust and ensured that employers pay them the minimum daily wages admissible by the state government.
