UC Curry Connect invites Your Doctor Debt in times of the pandemic

The UK Curry Connect, a leading association for the Indian restaurant industry in Britain, invites Ripon Ray to support its members during the pandemic.

The association brings chefs, waiters and small restaurant owners  to support them in  one of the worst effected period in the history of the sector.

'A lot of our workers do not know where to seek help. Chefs and waiters have lost their livelihood. No one cares about our sector.  The restaurant industry has been built by us: Bangladeshi chefs, waiters and small business owners. We are not sure whether we are going to survive during the period.'

Ripon Ray reached out to the industry leaders to support them during a very tough time because they have been left to fend for themselves. Many of these workers are too marginalise to get help from anyone. 

If you want invite Ripon Ray, don't be shy. Otherwise, get in touch with UK Curry Connect to find out about your rights on issues related to money, benefits and more.

The event is to be chaired by Ima Miah, CEO of Asian Resource Centre.
