    This fundraiser will benefit

    Tabjimiyan Gulab

    from Bangalore, Karnataka

Syed Gulab has been serving free lunch to patients. attenders outside Indira Gandhi Children's hospital in Bangalore for the past 650 days. He feeds close to 500 people everyday.

Gulab, a 40-year-old  dubai return  former auto spray painter painter, and now a motor vehicle insurance agent got the idea to start the campaign about a year ago, when his niece was admitted to a hospital and the child’s poor parents would remain without food for days, due to lack of money. Gulab says, he witnessed similar instances with other poor families during his visit to the hospital and felt a desire to do something about it.

           

The hospital bills are so exorbitant that low-income families find it hard to afford medication and the three times meal at the same time. And to top that, many of these patients come from different parts of India and elsewhere, so finding affordable accommodation is another difficulty they face,” 

Gulab has successfully managed to continue this deed for the past two and half years without missing a day of serving food. He now says the people who came there have become like family, when he quenches their hunger it feels like he has eaten to his stomach's full.

           

"I have had tough phases in this journey where I had to sell my camera and my bike to manage funds for the food. I sometimes hardly had money to feed my own family.  But due to God’s grace I have managed to pull through it" 

Syed is not looking at stopping anytime soon. In fact he has increased his service by providing idli's for breakfast to 200 people everyday for the past month. Also the number of people who come for his free lunch screening have been consistently increasing.

"I am only looking at taking this forward. If you people fund me to continue this work I will serve people until I die. I have no intentions of stopping "
