Meet Mohor - your typical 14 year old kid, busy growing up, showing streaks of independence and often giving her parents a hard time, with all the love in her heart. She loves singing - she has an angelic voice, loves to sing classical songs. She adores Bob Dylan & Joan Baez , identifies with Taylor Swift and Adele, but sways to the music of Halsey and Billie Eilish. She also loves poetry - her thoughts and words speak of a maturity far beyond the14 years she has spent on this planet. But don't be fooled by her soft demeanor and kind spirit, she is also an accomplished swimmer from when she was 4, and also a brown-black belt in Shito-ryu karate. She aspires to be that rare champion in both departments of the sport, Kata (shadow-fighting) and Kumite (fight). She was so happy to see the event included in the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year! She has the soul of a poet, the wisdom of a philosopher, but aspires to have the agility of a ninja.

Her parents have medical insurance, but it will cover less than INR 3.5 Lacs of the total costs. So I am asking you to open up your hearts, and donate whatever you can, to enable a teenager to live her dream - of growing up and taking on the world's challenges head on! That's all she is asking for - a shot at life, a chance to grow up, and go to college, spend time with her friends, and bring joy to everyone around her, and hopefully someday give something back to the world.
If you are unable to donate financially, please share this message amongst your friends, and please keep her and her family in your thoughts. She and her family hope to draw their strength from your support, both your words of encouragement as well your financial support.
