Story

With great power, comes great responsibility. 
If anyone can get us through this pandemic, it's the rich and powerful.

I'll keep it short, I am sure you must be getting a lot of these requests. We are a senior couple, just like many others, retired on a fixed pension. We started to dip into savings to help extended family about 5 years ago. We then asked others to help and started to get into debt. It was manageable so we didn't share it with our kids. With very little financial knowledge, we started giving out cheques and continued paying interest. When people started using high voice, we asked for our money back from the people we helped, nobody had any money. With 2020 and 2021, the only people that visit us are creditors asking for more. I can't explain how we got ourselves in debt of more than 25 lakh rupees. It still sounds like the impossible but we have 3 bounced cheque cases on us, people shouting at our doorsteps every day, kids asking everyone to help, and taking debt upon themselves just to pay monthly interest, time is not good.

I believe in god and I know he is watching, but I don't know what else to do but to ask powerful people like you to help us get out of this situation. Every little bit will help. Without any, getting out of this tough pandemic looks impossible now. If one of these days, we get Covid, we won't have enough to survive and nobody will lend us anymore.

If you don't believe this, feel free to email or call us for any personal details.

God willing, if this comes through, we will continue to help other seniors like us through.
