Dipika is from Darjeeling and is the eldest of 4 children in the Sharma family. She was doing well as the manager of a parlour when things started falling apart for her. Her younger brother and sister met with an accident in February 2020, which required a lot of financial support. This was followed by the lack of job for all in the family due to the covid 19 lockdown. As Bangalore began opening, Dipika was beginning to feel better about her and her family's future in Bangalore. But, her younger sister was detected with dengue and typhoid fever and her reports indicate that she has a very serious liver infection. Dipikas sister is facing serious issues and may not be able to sustain without medical attention. However, lack of funds means that dipikas sister does not get enough food every day, let alone getting good medical attention.
I urge all of you to spend a little from your packets to help this family survive and get their chance at a better life.
