An NGO, Helping Hand Foundation has conducted a survey on 7200 households spread over 20 different localities located in the old city of Hyderabad to learn the impact of the pandemic and the floods last year. The poor were worst hit, according to the survey with 80 percent of the households lost properties, jobs, and wages. Around 30 percent of the blue-collar workers had to become daily wagers after they lost their livelihood. 


Worst is that many families lost their documents in the floods which deprived them of Government's Welfare schemes. The pandemic not only caused financial problems but also suffered on their health front. Around 40 percent of adults aged above 35 years were suffering from hypertension while around 40 percent of women complain of polycystic ovary disease. 


The pandemic and the floods did not even leave the children at peace. One out of three children left school education to start earning. Many were seen taking trivial jobs to help their families in these times of distress. 33 percent of students aged between 10 and 17 years have left their education to earn livelihood for their families. Many women went jobless due to the closure of small trade. At this moment of distress, many men even abandoned their wives. Women as young as 30 years of age were abandoned, the survey said.
