Help Street Vendors Restart Their Business

COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on our street vendors who depend on a daily business to feed their families. As the city recovers, United Way Chennai wants to provide financial relief to help them restart their lives. For the cost of a family meal, you could help a family in need. #UnitedForStreetVendors
