The COVID-19 tragedy unfolding in India became intensely personal when we lost my friend's father and my dear uncle, Manoj Kumar Gupta. While he was being treated at the hospital for over a month, he fought like a lion with great willpower. We were all hopeful about his recovery but God had other plans for him. After a few days of putting him on ventilator support due to his deteriorating condition, we lost him to COVID-19 and he left us on 9th June 2021.
And yet, as we grieve uncle’s loss, our thoughts immediately go to the family. We wonder if this could have been us. We wonder how our families would cope, and shudder.
In spite of all the support we got from everyone, there were several challenges that have left the finances in a precarious state and his family struggling.
He was the sole bread earner of his family, leaving behind his wife and his two sons, Aman Kumar and Adarsh Kumar. Today the family faces a severe existential crisis as they don’t have any assured sources of income to ensure their livelihood and education expenses.
We resolve to do everything we can to help this family at least get the opportunities they deserve. It is in this we ask for your help. Please support uncle's family with their financial needs so that his eldest son could graduate and his family could find some relief after this grave loss.
Here, I'm calling out to everyone to come forward and donate in whatever capacity they can and pray for uncle's recovery.
