Story

Hi i am Grace Banu from Tamil Nadu.I am here to raise funds of about 10,00,000 for the people who are suffering The COVID-19 second wave  has directly impacted several vulnerable, disenfranchised, and marginalised communities across the country. This includes transgender folk artistes,HiV infectected trans folks  from across Tamil Nadu, who are left with neither food nor wages and paying rent  in these difficult times.

Socially excluded but religiously important, these artists depend on the auspicious spring season to perform at rituals and gatherings to earn their livelihood for the rest of the year. These three months, which have been taken over by the lockdown, are their only source of income for the entire year. They live on the outskirts of their villages and are often denied food, housing, or any form of support from other villagers.

There is an urgent need to help these transgender folk artists and  HIV infected trans,Sexworker  Trans survive this lockdown. We are a transgender rights group that is raising funds to support 500 trans across Tamil Naidu rural areas with emergency ration supplies ,Rent,Medical support for the next three months.

Please donate to this fundraiser and help ensure that their lives and livelihoods are protected. Even a small contribution will go a long way in making a difference in their lives.
