On June 21st, 2021, a family from Odisha, India was torn apart by the tragic death of their sole earning member – Manasa Mahapatra. He is survived by his wife (homemaker), a daughter (8-year-old), and 2 brothers (studying/unemployed). Manasa, a caring father, loving husband, and devoted son fought with Covid-19 like a true warrior; however, he lost the battle. He took his last breath on that fateful evening of June 21st and with that last breath, the life support of his family and their only hope of a secure future was snatched away.
Raised in a tiny village in Bhadrak district, Odisha, and from a humble background, Manasa chartered his course through hardships, achieved a bachelor’s degree in Arts, and went on to be a Configuration Manager in Evolent Health, Pune office. His father passed away in 2019 due to a kidney ailment and his mother too passed away, just a week before Manasa’s passing. His village, his community, his society, his company, all have lost a compassionate and true friend and colleague. His family is now staring at a bleak future filled with uncertainty. The dreams of educating his daughter and support for his wife lay shattered.
We have created this fundraiser to provide monetary support for the bereaved family, which can help with his daughter’s education and give financial support to his widow. Please support this fundraiser initiative by donating; no amount is too small for contributing. Together let us do our part to keep the hopes and future of Manasa’s family alive. We also humbly request you to share this link with your family, friends, and network.
