Since then the lady has been a domestic help in several houses and raising the two children. The elder son Ayyanar was very slow in learning and grasping while the girl child Shalini was smart but both were very frail. The boy dropped out in Std IX and does odd jobs earning Rs.200 a day. Shalini joined college with financial support from a few friends of mine and is continuing her UG in commerce.
Meanwhile, Shalini’s mother had developed a wound and unnoticeably ignoring her diabetic state the wound turned into gangrene and sepsis progressed till ankle and above when she was diagnosed in Royapettah it was too late. The right leg below the knee had to be amputated and she is now recovering. The boy is attending a scrap yard and gets 200 a day which is now the only income source. Her opportunities are now remote. She needs prosthetic support and diabetic care for now. The girl has to complete education. The rentals and debts are on the rise.
Please help the family until the girl finishes her studies and is able to earn and fend for the family
