This is to update you that we have withdrawn Rs 40,000 from this fundraiser to help a family of acid attack survivor Usma, who was severely injured in an acid attack in Meerut. (more details here:  http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/videos/news/Seven-of-a-family-becomes-victim-of-acid-attack-in-Meerut/videoshow/47470703.cms).

The family has been admitted at Safderjung Hospital in Delhi, our volunteers in Delhi are in touch and are helping the family. The amount is now be given to MLNS volunteer Shaheen's account, as she is helping Usma and her family. The  funds will be used to purchase medicines and bandages for the victims.

As an update on Deepmala, I would like to inform you all that Deepmala is presently undergoing treatment for eye-lid reconstruction at Sankara Netralaya in Chennai. This treatment has been sponsored by Amar Ujala Foundation, Uttar Pradesh.  We will need the rest of the funds collected for Deepmala once she goes back to Lucknow and resumes further surgeries for her face and body at a hospital of her choice.

Haseena (acid attack survivor from Bangalore) and I are in touch with Deepmala on phone and I am also planning to visit her.  In the meantime, if any of you would like to speak to Deepmala, then I would be happy to arrange a call with her. Thank you so much for your support towards Deepmala. We truly value your kind contribution.
