Help siblings Shakir Bhai and Ruqaiyah Bai

Have you ever thought of a 15-month-old baby suddenly rendered helpless, motionless by a stroke of medically induced spasticity, not even able to suckle her mother for the much-needed milk, How a father used a dropper like a pipette to put the milk in her mouth one drop at a time, How the family coped with this child as she grew up, her spinal cord paralyzed.
The relentless effort by the father to get her back to "normal" making her sit, her back to the wall with two pillows on either side for support - at the age of four years! And as the years passed she improved but very slowly. She started walking only with someone at her side, which was to be a lifelong necessary precaution, as her balancing function was far from working optimally.
She attended the Savera Special School (opp New  Excelsior Cinema) for children with special needs for almost three decades.
After her parents passed away her brother was her sole caretaker who quit his job as a copywriter to be able to take care of Ruqaiyah full time.

But the loss of income has made there life really difficult as he takes her for her out for an outing throughout south Bombay in her wheelchair pushing it himself which is physically draining him since both are aged. Shakir bhai is 59 and Ruqaiyah bai is about 69 years of age.
Shakir bhai is her sole caregiver. They used to have a two-wheeler before but it has also broken down and funds for its repairs or replacement are not something he can afford with costs for her medical needs and diapers are continuously making it difficult for him to manage their lives. 
a few years back livemint even published an article about them. Here’s a link to the same https://www.livemint.com/Leisure/TIoEvzuPhNjv2hOC6lAYBM/The-ride-back-home.html

please do all you can to help them who have been struggling in old age.

Dear Supporters,

The Campaign organizer has requested us to stop the campaign from accepting further donations due to a  fallout between the beneficiary and the campaign organizer over the course of the fundraiser, which was outside the purview of Milaap. We will be stopping the campaign as per the written request.

Since no funds have been utilized yet, the donations will, by default, be refunded back to the donors within 14 days if we have not heard from them. HOWEVER, donors may choose not to receive a refund but to allow the beneficiary to receive the funds. In this case, you will have to let us know within 14 days by replying to this update. The funds will be transferred to the vehicle dealership - Tason Energy for the purchase of the Electric Vehicle. Attached is the quotation from the dealership



Thank you for your support

Regards,
Team Milaap

P.S If payment was made to the Virtual Bank Account provided on the campaign page, and if you wish for a refund, please reply to this update with your account details.
