    This fundraiser will benefit

    Ravi Prajapati

    from Morena, Madhya Pradesh


Ravi (back row, 2nd from left in photo) is 23 years old. He lives in Morena, a small town in Madhya Pradesh along with his brother Deepu (26), sister Kalpana (18), father Sirnam, mother Kamala, wife Reena (22), daughter Neha (3 months) and grandmother Baijanti.

Two years ago, the family borrowed 3 lakh rupees for Ravi's wedding from a private lender by mortgaging their house. The deadline to return the money is approaching. Ravi is the sole bread earner for his family as his father suffers from physical weakness after he was diagnosed with TB several years ago and his brother also suffers from an unknown condition which prevents him from carrying out any strenuous physical work. The family survives on whatever odd work Ravi can find. Whatever funds the family could collect in the last two years was spent on the grandmother's surgery and other emergencies besides paying off a fraction of the loan. Kalpana is also arranged to be married and the wedding is supposed to take place sometime after Diwali. The total amount to be repayed comes to around 4 lakh rupees after adding interest and subtracting the amount already repayed. The whole family is poor and uneducated and has no means to arrange such a large sum within such a short period of time. If they are unable to pay the sum by December 2017, they will lose the only asset they have and will be forced to live on the street. With your support, we can help Ravi and his family to overcome this challenge. Any help, big or small, will go a long way to ensure that this family can save their home and hopefully work towards a better future.
