Nestled in the outskirts of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Anbu Thondu Nilayam houses 35 elderly survivors of leprosy, a disease that causes skin lesions and affects the skin, eyes, and peripheral nerves. These 35 elderly individuals were abandoned by their families, and have no financial resources to meet their basic needs.
In order to assist them, the old age home stepped in to cater to their needs, including providing them with housing, medicines, and three meals a day. However, the recent onslaught of the 2nd wave of COVID-19 has strained the old age home's finances -- as a result, the home is unable to afford operational costs.
Our goal to raise Rs.1,01,250 , which will be used to purchase items like beds, bed sheets, pillows, mosquito nets, and fans.
We have made a list of the most basic necessities that we can provide them with and have worked out the most reasonable cost in order to provide all 35 of them with the same comfort.
Following is the cost that we have worked out along with the items/services.
BEDSHEETS AND PILLOWS: Rs. 22,500
MOSQUITO NETS: Rs. 10,000BEDS: Rs. 52,500
FANS: RS. 6,000
PAINTING OF WALLS: Rs. 10,000
TOTAL COST : Rs. 1,01,250
*the bills and supporting documents will be uploaded as and when we receive sufficient funds to start the above stated process.*
Through this fundraiser we hope to show these survivors some love and a small ray of hope during these tough times.
