Story

Apsara is a strong trans warrior in her life from childhood. Her struggles have made her emerge as an independent.
Apsara has been identified with Gender Dysphoria condition which is certified by two known Psychologists. Gender dysphoria is the distress that occurs when a person’s sex assigned at birth does not match your gender identity.  In maximum cases, it leads to suicidal tendencies too. She needs to undergo two major Gender affirmative surgeries which are lifesaving surgeries for her. Research has shown that transgender individuals who choose gender-affirming surgery experience long-term mental health benefits like the need for mental health treatment declined by 8% each year after the gender-affirming procedures.
 COVID 19 pandemic has drastically affected the health of the trans community. Many trans people are not able to purchase their hormones during the lockdown as they have no regular income. The gender affirmative surgeries they planned have been postponed due to emergency pandemic situations, lockdowns, and non-continuation of surgical procedures by the surgeons with fear of the spread of COVID 19 infection. Apsara s income has been affected as very less people opted for beauty-related services which also included the human touch. Her small savings were also exhausted due to no income during the lockdown.
Nisha is in now need of Rs. 250000 for her surgical procedures which can save her life. Let us help her to get her the life she wanted and dreamed for. Please contribute and share this message widely. a small amount also can help her surgery.
We need your support. Donate, amplify, and support us in living the lives ourselves.
