As you all know, India is undergoing the worst stretch of covid impact since the beginning of the pandemic. Hospitals are running out of Oxygen and patients who can otherwise be cured are dying due to asphyxiation.
Same pandemic has been effecting a lot of families since past one year. My Mama ji’s (Maternal Uncle) family is one of the victims of the covid pandemic.
He lost his job in April 2020 due to covid pandemic and since then he was trying to taking care of his family through the savings he had. He was tested COVID positive on April 20th 2021 and was admitted to Govt hospital on April 26th. He fight his best but ultimately due to delay in medical care in Delhi Hospitals, couldn’t make it.
He was only 42 years old. His wife and 3 Sons (15 years, 13 years and 10 years) are devastated to say the least. The little one still believes his daddy will be back soon. His wife is not able to afford even one meal per day. As of now, I am taking care of their expenses as per my capacity. However without an income, the family has been pushed further into poverty.
Despite schools reopening having online classes, His wife isn’t sure where the money for her children’s education is going to come from. Since the outbreak, she has had to sell her jewelry, home furniture and much more. No longer able to make rent, she has to move out of the rented room if rent is not being paid by coming week.
The eldest kid is studying in class 11th, middle one in 8th and the youngest kid in 5th class. Every child, no matter who they are or where they come from, deserves access to education.
A small amount can change the life of a child; through education, nutrition, and basic protection, children can lead normal lives.
I've done my bit by helping, and I urge you to do the same. I am posting this to help raise funds to support the family and reserve some fund for kids education while his wife gather the strength to find a basic job to sustain ongoing expenses.
The amount doesn’t need to be compulsorily hefty. Every penny counts. Do what's best - support them in maximizing this effort. Every life saved counts.
Your support and kindness to the family is greatly appreciated. Stay safe and be blessed. My sincere gratitude and thank you to all of you for your support and generosity.
