Forced to beg on the streets, This woman seeks help to get a job

Why am I fundraising?

Found this helpless woman begging with her child in streets of Kolkata (Near Haldiram , VIP Road). She is from a remote village of Sundarban, West Bengal. As a result of an accident she broke her rib . Due to severe pain she can not do any physical work which requires bending, lifting heavy weight any more. Previously she was working as daily wage earner and could feed her family. But now due do her physical problem she is not finding any way to earn. According to to her version , her husband is also not mentally fit and do not earn enough.
She need some monetary help to treat herself and start a small business gradually(like making dry flowers, selling something on roadside etc) after she gets well.

She is checking into govt hospital , but as she can not walk for long her treatment is also being affected.

Help her to return to normal life by proving her some assistance.

A detail interview of her and her child is here (As she only speak Bengali language she expressed her problem in her language).

All her prescriptions , X ray report details are being attached with this link. She do not have any phone number. If you want to know
more you can call Subhadip Mukherjee, an IT engineer , who found her in this distressed condition on road . Subhadip is reachable via

If you want to meet the lady you can come to VIP Road , Haldiram , Kolkata footpath on Saturday - Sunday.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

Donate to the lady to feed her for a year and start a small business (like sewing , making dry flower etc)


How do I know this is a genuine case ?

Her multiple prescriptions and X ray reports look valid. They have been attached here.
About Subhadip, though he is by profession an IT engineer, he is a social worker and founded a small charitable organisation "Maha
Jiban" (

We have already handed over rs 5000 to her back in 2016 itself so that she could start immediately. Though this was very small amount , we will keep in touch and try to to help her more in future.
She wanted to quit begging and start a small business of selling junk jewelries. Maha Jiban donated her the 5000 rs so that she can buy raw material from barabazar in kolkata and start her own business. Hope she won't need to beg anymore. See the video here
