The Workers Fund

Platform workers who are working during the pandemic are either struggling to get proper protection from their companies or to make ends meet due to a drop in demand for services. The Workers Fund was launched in March 2020 to help platform workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. It collects donations to be distributed to these workers who have lost their income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is run by the Workers Lab, a US-based NGO.
