As I type this out, my father lies lifeless in a government morgue waiting to cremated. A hard-working person who came out from a remote nook of Assam, he built for himself a respectable life as an asset to the society.
Corona has taken a lot from each of us, my family is no different. At 8 PM today, I received news how he passed away without ever telling me or my sister that he was tested positive for Covid.
My mother was a teacher but she was afflicted with retinal detachment in 2007 and over the next decade and half till now, she has lost a major portion of her eyesight and with it, her ability to work as a teacher.
My sister passed out with her MBBS degree this year. She is doing her internship which pays her a measly amount not enough to sustain herself away from home.
So I ask you to please help us tide over this misfortune and help us sustain ourselves for at least a year or two- both for my studies, my sister’s internship and my mother’s medical bills. (My gender affirming medical bills is not included in this fundraiser. Without basic sustenance, that takes a backseat.)
I know there is a lot of people who needs help but if you can, please do help me out. It will help us immensely.
