On Sunday, Sify.com reported that thousands of FEFSI workers are jobless and are unable to lead their routine life due to the lack of income. Most of these FEFSI workers are daily wagers so their income depends on film shoots. As film shoots in TN have been called off due to the corona outbreak, now all these 25,000 members of FEFSI are jobless.
In his statement, FEFSI's President RK Selvamani said he got a phone call from one of his members saying that he couldn't even provide proper food to his family.
According to Selvamani, nearly 15,000 workers are unable to fulfill the basic needs of their family members. Now, Suriya, Karthi and their dad Sivakumar donated 10 lakhs to the FEFSI workers.
Selvamani requested affluent actors and producers to donate Rs 1 crore rupees so that FEFSI can at least provide rice bags to their members.
