Dear Supporters,

I am stopping the fundraiser for Shafi for now. He is at CMC Vellore undergoing rehabilitation and is doing well. The funds have been withdrawn and will be transferred to his mother's account soon. Around 2 lakhs have been spent so far on hospital and personal expenses so far over the past five months. I'm grateful to all who supported this initiative in various ways. The fundraiser can be commenced later if there is a need.

Around Rs 94000 has been used in cash over the past four months on local hospital expenses, ambulance, medicines and materials and food. This also includes the personal expenses at CMC Vellore over the past one month. The total amount collected has been almost 6.5 lakhs of which around INR 1.6 lakhs have been spent. An amount of around 3.5 lakhs has been transferred to his mother's account and the remaining amount  from the withdrawal from Milaap will be transferred to the same account once it's withdrawn to my account.  I'm handling funds directly.

 Let's hope he improves soon and is gainfully rehabilitated.

Shafi is to undergo two surgeries this week at CMC Vellore, one to close the bed sore and another to help him bend his knee joint. Since the desired fund has been raised, I wish to close the campaign for now. So far we've spent around Rs 1.3 lakh. I'm attaching some bills to confirm the same. I wish to thank again each and every person who contributed with time effort money and goodwill to help Shafi so far. More help will be needed in future when another campaign can be run to raise funds.
