    Geetha Shaji

    from North Paravur, Kerala

This is Ms Geetha. She lives with her son at Paravur, in a 500 sq ft house. She's on the verge of losing her house, owing to her financial inability of paying back the bank that had loaned her money. Her husband passed away four years ago, and Geetha had to marry her daughter off to ensure that she doesn't struggle or starve. Her daughter was a brilliant student, and wishes to study further and get a job, as per their father's dream. Geetha lost her job as a cleaning staff due to Covid19, and has simultaneously suffered ill health that prevented her from going to work. Her 17 year old son, now a newspaper boy, works from 4 am to 6 am, and then attends classes online. They make Rs 1100 a month, and borrow small amounts when they run out. Imagine that. A family that sustains for a month on the amount of money we spend on a luxury lunch. Now, if each of you put aside just that much money, Geetha and her son will have their home back. She won't have to spend sleepless nights worrying about her children. If you could help her find a job, she could be self sufficient. We have until January 31st to help this family pay back the loan and ensure they don't lose the little house they worked so hard on building. You are this family's only hope.
