Let's Help This Farmer's Family To Survive

Who is producing food for our Nation? It's a FARMER only!  Nowadays we are responding and supporting even for such a small cause, why can't we respond and help a family who lost their primary family member and the only income source; a farmer died along with his cattle in the farm land itself while working. It may come under a merciless god's act, but still, we are human beings to feel the sadness.

This pathetic incident occurred at Kamalapuram village of Kadapa district in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The victim is the farmer Mallikarjun Reddy, who died along with his cattle on the farm because of the thunderbolt. He is illiterate and also poor enough. He was feeding his dependents solely based on daily wages getting by plowing others farms with the help of his cattle. He borrowed the money and bought the cattle for his survival. But the merciless God took away both the cattle and farmer.

Now his family is on the road including old age parents, his wife with two daughters; they have no source of income. Apart from that he borrowed some amount and bought that cattle.  They have not received any help or support of the government. Honestly, I feel so sad of this incident. Everybody showed so much of mercy and expressed their condolences, but nobody helped them. Then I decided to help them out.... I personally helped them whatever I can. But still, I feel it's not enough for them to survive and resume their normal life... that's why I'm here to raise funds for their lives speedy recovery by establishing an income generating source, i.e., a small General Store or Kirana Shop.

The fund raised through this campaign mainly will be utilized for:
1. Establishing an income generating source for them(General/Kirana Store)
2. His elderly parent's medical expenses
3. His children education expenses

                               So, dear supporters/contributors those who want to join and support my campaign can join. Nothing we will lose if we support for a social cause! Common friends...  contribute for a noble cause and prove our humanity!

The entire contributed amount will be donated to the victim's family in the form of a cheque, and the same will be updated on Milaap.

And, finally thank you very much for Milaap for elevating social causes in such a unique way!

Hi Supporters,

All the things are now on a right track. The new store that we are going to open is getting ready. Hardly it will take two to three weeks of time, as the work is in progress.
By this month-end, we are going to bring commodities required for the general store from Metro Cash n Carry as they are better and low in price compared with others.

As our campaign is 80% successful, the main portion of the fund raised is used to run the store i.e., the working capital and the remaining for the elderly medical expenses.
There is one more pending responsibility that is their children education expenses. Here I'm very happy to annouce that I'm going to bear the entire amount of the school/college fee of their children(both) for one year which will be around Rs 80k.

Let the store be run for one year so that they can get financial stability. After onwards, they can take care of themselves which is our main intension and goal.

I personally should say "Thank you very much" to each and everybody those who made this campaign grand succes and given their valuable suggestions.

Thank you ALL!

Sowjanya Reddy.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you very much for your great support. I'm sorry for the delay in the update as I blessed with a baby girl and was in the hospital for twelve days due to Caesarean operation. So, there is a small delay in work progress. As of now, we paid the advance amount of Rs 54,000/- for the store towards rental, and the interior work is in progress. And we paid the amount of Rs. 30,000/- for the carpenter and masonry work as per our requirements inside the store to keep commodities or articles in proper place.
I'll update the details as the work progresses.

Thank you all!

Dear Supporters and Well-wishers,

First of all, "Thank you very much!" for such a great and overwhelming response from the deep heart!
As the first step, here is an update of our campaign. We have selected a small vacant shop (near Proddutur, Kadapa district Andhra Pradesh) which is a fit for the purpose, i.e., to generate apt income for the survival of the farmer's family as well as the Kirana Store. We have spoken to the owner of the shop and fixed the monthly rent and the advance amount. It is Rs. 4500/- per month (Actually, it was 6k per month. After explaining the situation of the family, he also showed mercy and agreed for the less) and the advance amount is Rs. 54,000/- (One year). We will be occupying the shop by the first week of July, and we are going to pay that advance on next week.

Here is the breakup of fundraiser amount:
  1. Rs. 54000/- Advance
  2. We keep aside some Rs. 10,000/- for small business registration, PAN, CTS, etc.
  3. Working capital of Rs. 2,50,000/- to buy general commodities and general article to run the Kirana Store.
  4. General maintenance cost of the shop including small goods holders and wooden racks, etc. i.e., carpentry work. Rs. 30,000/-
  5. Rs. 50,000/- for Medical expenses of his elderly parents (for both) for the entire year.
  6. Rs. 50,000/- for educational fees, books, uniform, etc. of their two children for the entire year.
Gathered the local people support and everybody responded quite positively. As of now, this is what the plan is. And we will update the work progress in next step. Any suggestions and valuable points are always welcome!
