Help Salvi Didi Provide Education To Her Children

In November 2017, when I moved into the apartment that I live in, my flatmates already had Salvi didi helping them run this household. She's been working with us for almost 3 years now. Sadly, now we have to move out of this apartment in Malad and we cannot take her along wherever we go next. We also don't know who will be occupying this apartment after us and if they will hire Salvi didi.

What we do know now, over these years, is that Salvi didi has a disabled husband and 3 daughters to take care of, while living at a relative's place, who doesn't help in making her life any easier. She works all day, trying make ends meet. Now, she wants to rent her house for herself so that she's no longer dependent on her relatives. She also has to provide for her daughters' education. A few months ago, things got to a point where she almost made her eldest daughter drop out of school so that she could also start working and get additional income for the family. Our neighbours and we contributed to stop that from happening. And we want to ensure that it doesn't happen again. She also takes care of her husband's medical expenses, and occasionally her own, which is an added burden on her.

While all of do whatever we can to help her, we do feel that any additional monetary help would go a long way for her and her family. We request that you contribute whatever little you can. We will handover this money to her in small amounts for her to pay her daughters' school fees regularly and run her household smoothly.

Any help will be appreciated.

We had started this fundraiser for a different reason. But our plans were derailed due to Covid19. Since the lockdown, Salvi didi hasn't been able to go to work as a househelp in any of the houses that she works at. Which means that basic sustenance would have become a problem without your generosity. While all the families that she works for have been paying her her salary, we decided to use the funds collected through Milaap to reduce her burden. We have paid 2 months' worth of rent for her (her house rent is Rs.4000) and we make weekly grocery kits for her and her family. These kits are delivered to her with all necessary precautions and under sanitary conditions. While we had hoped to collect more funds, we are doing whatever we can and will keep doing so. I sincerely thank you all for all your generosity.
