Story

Mehram was founded by a group of women in Kashmir to work as service providers and a support group for women victim-survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). We engage with women from all sections to provide them legal aid, counseling, and support in taking legal initiatives.

With COVID impacting all aspects of our life, we broadened the scope of our work and got involved in assisting families impacted by the pandemic in any form. We recognize how it has impacted the economies of families and their livelihoods and worked for providing basic sustenance needs to these families with the help of our donors. We are currently assisting 100 above families under the same project.

Before COVID, we provided regular financial assistance to 40 families on a monthly basis. Apart from that, we do fundraisers from time to time for specific projects and people in need.

With the current fundraiser, we aim to assist a family headed by Nazia Bano (Name Changed). The 40-year-old lady from West Bengal has 5 children, all minor. She is a widow and has been thrown out of her matrimonial home after her husband had passed away. She is now struggling for shelter and a decent life for herself and her children.

The money raised will be used for helping Nazia Bano buy a piece of land and construct a house for herself and her family. As per our rough estimates, she requires a minimum of 6 Lakhs to be able to do the same on the outskirts of the city.
