    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Bengaluru (Bangalore) Urban, Karnataka

Suma, moved to Bengaluru 14 years ago after she lost her family in an earthquake and was working as a dishwasher at a hotel for just ₹50 a day.

She was gang-raped on November 23, 2017, by six unidentified men in an abandoned structure where she lived on the outskirts of Anekal.

She was not only raped by the men but was also brutally physically assaulted by them. They threw her multiple times on the wall and then hit her legs with stones. Her right knee is swollen while the right hand had a fracture that was operated upon. She had multiple injuries on her limbs as well as hips.

After they left her for dead, she somehow managed to crawl out of the building and reach a bus stop that was 250 meters away from the spot. She spent an entire day at the bus stop but no one approached or offered her any help. The next day she was spotted by an activist from Stree Jagriti Samithi, who was on her way to work. An ambulance was called and she was then taken to Bowring Hospital. Even after 2 years of treatment, she is yet to fully recover from the injuries and still struggles to stand up and walk on her own. We believe she needs a proper follow-up and care at one of the better private hospitals to have a better chance at recovery.

For the past two years some Myself, a few Good Samaritans and the North-East Solidarity, have been supporting her treatment as well as other regular costs.

Until now, we've spent upwards of Rs. 4,00,000 collectively from our savings, Provident Fund retirement corpus etc.

We are here to try and fundraise for her and if successful would be utilisung the funds in the following manner.

Monthly Living expenses: 6,000*36 months = Rs 2,16,000

Monthly Medical Expenses: 25,000 * 36 months = Rs 9,00,000 Expenses (This is an approximate and shall be verified by taking an estimate from a private hospital)  

Expenses already incurred till date = Rs. 5,00,000
Other future miscellaneous expenses = Rs. 1,00,000

Please do come forward and donate generously for her cause. Also pls do share with your friends, family and networks as much as possible.
