“Didi mai kal kaam pe nai aungi.” Do you remember the last time your maid took an off or enjoyed a paid leave? In a time where many of us are privileged enough to be working and availing employee benefits, several domestic workers have either lost their job or are barely managing to scrape by due to the pandemic. Thankfully things are returning back to normal and house helps are now going back to work.

However, either way, it is imperative that we help each other in every way possible since it’s risky to go out and work amid COVID-19.
