In a cruel twist of fate, she lost her husband (the sole breadwinner of the family) in a matter of days while she and her daughter were battling Covid themselves.
Always being the chirpy, bubbly, smiling little girl (most Salwanians from 2001 batch will remember); never could she imagine COVID turning her life upside down.
In a city abandoned by its administration and medical infrastructure overwhelmed; she couldn't secure life saving medical aid for her rapidly deteriorating husband, despite running from pillar to post, amidst suffering from Covid herself while also taking care of her covid-positive daughter .
With no available help or support, her husband eventually succumbed to the disease. She had no clue what to do, as her whole world came crashing down, leaving her heartbroken. No one from her family could be with her during this unbearably painful time as she still was positive. Her husband was much too young to go. Her daughter, too young to understand the magnitude of this loss. Alone, anxious, and feeling utterly helpless, this beautiful soul is struggling to keep her head above the water.
Life hasn't been kind to one of the kindest people I know. Having lost her father at a young age, she braved the circumstances and supported her family. As if this wasn't enough,a few years later her younger brother's both kidneys failed; draining every last penny of their savings. While she has been braving all these ordeals over the years, losing her partner shattered her completely and took away her source of strength and support. Amit, her husband, was the purest soul I knew of, who always smiled, no matter what. His family meant the world to him and he would live each day for them.
While she is learning to survive and coming to terms with life, we, as her friends and well wishers should come together to support Meeta through one of the most trying times of her life.I have never reached out to my network for support, but for Meeta & her daughter I feel committed to do my utmost to secure a decent future (to be able to meet basic needs like her daughter’s education & her own medical bills as she recovers from serious post-covid complications).
Please come forward to support in whichever way you can, however little you can, every penny counts.
Meeta's account details are listed below (all funds raised will go directly to her). Also included is her phonepe or paytm number.
