Story

Hii, I'm a Dalit Queer person from Mumbai. My dad was a labourer but he hasn't had a job since a few years. He takes whatever he gets so we never had a stable income source. My mom works with fabricators when she can, it pays very less as well. They're only able to earn enough to get food two times a day. They couldn't afford my college after 12th as well so I started working and paying for myself ever since I was 17. I'm here because of help and support from a lot of people in my life but I never needed a help this big.

I fell ill at the start of this month and then exams started because of which I wasn't able to work, so I lost my job this month. And my mental health has been deteriorating since two months so I need to take a break from work, I can't afford therapy. My dad caught covid in the middle of April and elder brother has been not well ever since too, younger sibling is yet to complete 18 so he can't work right now. Since then, meds and with dad's home quarantine situation my finances have been shriveled. The money I saved for my college fee, for final year, and my emi is all gone into taking care of myself and dad. I've managed until now but since dad's condition is getting better very slowly and mom doesn't have a job because of lockdown, I need your help to survive a few months. The funds will go towards taking care of my family and the daily necessities required. Please donate, anything will help.
