Note from Saryan

I am in need of funds.
I am fundraising for myself.
I am underweight.
I cannot do work that involves physical tasks.
I need your help.
I am living on what little of savings I have left.
Help me fund my living.
Help me buy food and shelter so I may live normally for the next 5 months.

I will live with your gratitude.

Thank You kindly,
Saryan

Saryan's Story

Saryan is unemployed and lives with a little of his savings that he has saved during his life. He lives alone in a rented room that's located far outside his city. He lives a frugal life, is weak, and needs your help to pay for food and living expenses.

He needs INR 53,530 for buying food and paying for shelter for the next 5 months. It is very crucial for his livelihood. If he can't fundraise his living soon, he will be forced to take to the streets and wander the city as a beggar.

Help Saryan now and change a life today. Help someone overcome poverty. Help someone fund a living. Make a pledge today.

Thank You kindly
