I am Himanshi, 22-year-old, and residing in Delhi. I have lost both of my parents within a span of three days due to CoVID. I am still studying and am in the third year of graduation. My younger brother, who is 17 years old and in school, and my grandmother are completely dependent on me. My father was the sole earning member of my family and with his unfortunate demise, I have no funds to manage the household or pay for my or brother's education.
I aspire to be in the field of agriculture however I have now decided to take charge of my father's small food shop. But my father's outstanding loan taken for the food shop and both parents' COVID medical expense is breaking my back and spirit. Especially when the food shop is not able to break even due to COVID lockdowns and low demand.
With a bunch of dreams, I don't deserve what has been thrown upon by fate. I am still currently going through so much managing myself and my younger brother and grandmother who are still in a state of shock. However, I have gathered myself and trying to pick things from here. While the world can't replace or reduce the loss and immense grief that my family is going through, I can attempt to stay strong and put effort to secure their future.
We seek your help and the funds generated from this initiative will be used to meet:
I) 1lakhs - Immediate needs of the family such as paying for outstanding parents' CoVID medical expenses
ii) 0.5 lakhs - Partially fund brother's education expenses till the time food shop can sustain my financial requirements
iii) 2.5 lakhs - Payoff the debt which is due in the next few 3-4 months.
Please contribute in whatever capacity you can. Each penny will go a long way in helping me :)
Thanks a lot!
