Potter / Kumhar Seeking Money To Build A Room To Stay-sell Items !

'Sir i never begged to anyone even when i had nothing to eat i tried to live with dignity,but not sure if that can continue any longer'  .

Meet mr Afsal Hashim Shaikh , age 78. everything was fine he had a small land where he used to grow basic corps season wise and make sand utensils as well just to manage his living expenses  with him n his wife .losing both his sons in 2001 earthquake he had no where else to go asking for any kind of help. well even with this age he was managing his life quite well living with dignity untill fast forward to last 7 months since government took his land for road widening and now asking 2.58 lakhs Rs as bribe/processing fee/expense to get the documents done to get another land else where or forget he owned the land ever if he cant manage money !

he's seeking money to build a new room/shelter on a property in village near Roha city which is 62 km approx from capital of district.we are planning to give him exception to use our old age home's 1 small land piece of around 20 Feet by 14 Feet which was being used as Gau Shala (cows were kept there)  to build a room there. Not planning to get a big or modern room just a basic brick wall room with basic utlities as 1 electric fan and light + 2 power outlets is being considered. Other than this we are planning to buy 2 tables for him and maybe few more smaller basic items to help him sell more. The old age home will have ownership over room but we will make a deal with him so he can use it till he wishes to . Plus we are planning to give him headstart for now by paying him money for all he has made so far and donate that to nearby village to needy people , we already crowdfunded around 30% of money to buy all his items he made recently and waiting to get more from donation here or locally.

The room we have land so just build up for material will be around 60Krs and labor charge arnd 25k including everything and rest for color and basic stuff of room like electricity and table and stuff
