Jahageer, Shama and their four kids - Arifa, Maheen, Rafiya and Arafat - moved from Merut in Uttar Pradesh to New Delhi in last few months of 2019. They came to the capital city in search of employment to support their family of 6. Whereas Shama was able to find employment working as a help in a girls hostel, Jahageer had little luck. Soon after the Covid-19 pandemic, Shama's already meagre income was also slashed in half and the family have been surviving on next to nothing. Fulfilling basic needs of food, rent, electricity bills and education for their children has been very difficult for Shama and Jahageer. They are desperately seeking to be self sufficient so they can provide their family with these basic necessities.
With these funds, Jahageer wants to buy an e-rickshaw so that he and Shama can support their family and become self sufficient. They need your help so they can have a stable source of income and give their children the future they deserve and break this cycle of poverty.
