I am a financial aid student at Ashoka University. I am from a marginalized community and my family is going through immense financial distress. Recently my parents were forced out of their rented city home and they had to go back to our village because we were unable to pay rent and electricity bills for the last three months. My father is a Tuberculosis patient and my elder brother, who is the sole source of income for my family, got fired from the shop he was working in. We had taken about a 3 lakhs Rupees loan from local people but around 2 lakhs is due to be paid urgently especially because they are threatening my family every day. I did not have enough strength to ask for help earlier because I came to Ashoka with the sole vision to change my current situation by educating myself. But this pandemic has ruined my dreams and everything else.
My family does not have enough money to even pay my father’s medical expenses. He was very serious last month but one of my friends helped me for his treatment but he is still under medication and we need to visit the doctor almost every day.
Currently my brother is in the city without any source of income and my parents in the village, and we do not even have electricity at my home. But we have to pay the due loan, home rent, and my father’s medical expenses urgently. Additionally, due to lack of income we will also need financial support to pay rent and other expenses for the next few months.
I really need your support for the survival of my family and to ascertain they meet their basic needs.
The following are the requirements for which my family needs donations urgently:-
2. Electricity Bill = Rs 3000
3. Urgent loan payment = Rs 2,00,000
4. Father’s medical expenses = Rs 35,000
5. Support rent for few upcoming months = Rs 46,800
6. Daily need support for at least two months = Rs 9000
Total Amount = Rs 317200."
