Story

Dear friends,

As you all must be aware that during last week (18th - 24th Oct), Uttrakhand received heavy rainfall which has created havoc on families living on the foothills.

Out of the thousands of families, one was of our dear Kiran Aunty. She runs a beautiful camping site in Baldiyankhan (Nainital) and her family's livelihood was propelled by the camping site only. We have been in touch with the family and we have tried to assess the financial position. Earlier this year, their business suffered huge losses because of the covid but they bravely and wisely fought that period and came back strong. But, the recent landslides have again brought their lives to a still. They were living in blackout for the past 6 days as all the electric lines were destroyed and to worsen the situation, the landslides destroyed their entire campsite. Currently, they have canceled all of their bookings for the next few weeks.

The camping site is situated on the hills where you can walk down the forest and explore the waterfall. There is also a small playground where you can play games(we played cricket, sitolia(seven stones). They also offer you homemade foods and arrange for an evening beside a bonfire. Although it's a camping site, it's nothing less than a warm homestay.

The fund raised here would directly be deposited to Kiran aunty's account who would then decide on its suitable expenditure and/or investment for future measures. They plan to repair all the damages and make it more secure from such natural calamities, making it safer for the tourists coming.
