FREE/DEM Community Podcast: Corona Special_Stories from the Ground_11_Falling between the cracks

May 6, 2020

This episode has Rukaiya sharing her story on how she could not avail the economic assistance provided to auto drivers as part of the COVID relief schemes introduced by the Delhi Government due to the callous behavior of the post office and bank administrations of her area.


As the Covid 19 pandemic sweeps the country, migrants and those living on the margins of the city will be impacted the most both in terms of health as well as economic outcomes. The Freedem Initiative undertakes media literacy trainings with communities in and around Delhi. FreeDem community reporters bring you a series of stories from the ground in these difficult times as well as  information about the various Government relief programmes that have been announced.


Free/Dem Community Podcasts, is the online avatar of the Freedem WhatsApp Radio run by community members of Tajpur Pahadi and other urban slums in and around Delhi. There are 6 shows built around ideas of gender equity, love, freedom of expression, human rights and justice. Through the podcasts community members discuss as well as share their lived realities. They are produced under Ideosync's FREE/DEM initiative, which provides marginalized communities - especially women and migrants - a platform to amplify their narratives and stories using audio and video.
