    Harsaben Gautambhai Makwana

    from Ahmedabad, Gujarat

28-year-old Harshaben has been living away from her daughters for the last 3 years. Life has been extremely tough on her. Harshaben lost her Husband to cancer when she was just 24 years old, after that she had to move out of the house. She does not have a home, therefore, she stays in a hostel, she works as a housekeeper in one the nursing colleges in Ahmedabad.
Whatever she earns, most of the money goes in traveling and meeting her kids.

Harshaben wishes to bring her kids to Ahmedabad but due to an extremely limited source of income, she is unable to do so.



To help Harshaben start her life again, a fund of 5 lakh is required. Let us come together and help a mother live with her family in peace.




The end of 2012 brought a lot of sadness to the family. Gautam was detected of cancer at last stage and had to stop going to work due to his health condition. In order to arrange the money for his treatment, unfortunately, the family had to sell their business. With all kinds of efforts put in the family was unable to save Gautam as breathed his last breath on July 2013. 

For Harshaben more than losing her husband it was a battle for her and children's survival. Harshaben is uneducated does not know anything other weaving and tailoring however with no money left, she and her daughters future appeared dark. 
 
After Gautam's death Harshaben had to move out of the house, with no money and no roof to live. She had nowhere to go since she was an orphan and her parents died at a very young age

I was planning to commit suicide with my daughters - Harshaben

Seeing a mother in distress, one of the sisters from a local charity trust came forward to help her. The Sister arranged the admission of both daughters at
St. Anne's School in Saputara and gave her a job of housekeeper in the same school. 

Somehow god has been kind and has sent people to help me out so far - Harshaben

One of the kind donors from Ahmedabad came forward to help Porva and aalya with their education and have borne their fees for the last two years.

Why should you contribute?

Harshaben was transferred 2 years ago from Saputara to Ahmedabad to Nursing college. Every month she spends nearly 2000 rupees for meeting daughters when traveling to Saputara.

Her daughters complain parents of other kids visit them often and their mother only comes once or maybe twice in a month.
Harshaben wishes to bring her kids back to Ahmedabad, she needs to get a house on rent and start her own work of weaving and tailoring.
The kid's education will also require funds.

The campaign is raising 5 lakhs to ensure she starts a new life with her kids once again.

Please come forward and support this worthy cause.
