I am fundraising to help Sanjay Jha buy a bicycle

This photograph is of Mr. Sanjay Jha who sells masala chana at Saket Anupam PVR complex in New Delhi. He carries this self built contraption around his neck all day - at least till 9:30PM in the night. He makes several walking trips from Anupam PVR to J-Block market Saket, and can go upto Chirag Dilli trying to sell his items, and then walks back. This happens a several times during the day. That's a long journey to cover on foot with such an uncomfortable load! He works 7 days a week carrying this loaded basket. His only protection from the iron wires and heavy weight is a thin cotton towel (visible). It is very uncomfortable and definately not good for his body. 

He does all this work happily. We go to our office and work in relative comfort while he toils in the Delhi heat with this baggage. He does this to support his family which includes 5 children (all in school). 

All this would become a lot easier if he had a bicycle with a carrier. He would be able to travel his distances faster and more comfortably, and would save time which he can hopefully spend with his family. We want to help make his daily life a little easier.

Thank you everyone for contributing to the campaign! Your gifts were delivered to Mr. Sanjay Jha. He was one happy man! It was so nice to be a part of that moment. His gratitude could be felt in his smile.

Since the money collected was more than the bike's cost, we also bought him a basic mobile phone on your behalf. The carrier seems to be perfect. His smile broadened seeing the mobile phone. We forgot to give him the keys for the lock and when we went back, he was sharing the story with others. Everyone felt really happy and joyful. It took such little effort to create so much goodness. 

Alongside Mr. Jha are our niece and nephew, and the managers of a mobile store at Anupam PVR who helped cover the logistical barriers between Mr. Jha and your gifts. They called us up the moment Mr. Jha entered the Anupam PVR complex. 

Thank you very much again for being a part of this effort!
