Their plight was brought to my notice by Surya who is an underprivileged artist himself. He has been dealt a very bad hand in life with his father and sister succumbing to suicide due to various health and financial issues. He currently stays with his mother who works as a maid in Malleshwaram. Despite this, Surya has a great spirit when it comes to helping others and has done his best to help people like Rohit, who is his neighbourhood friend.
The money raised via this fundraiser will be used to pay Rohit's and Ganesh's school fees on priority (I have already provided 14k for covering Rohit's urgent needs). The remaining shall be used for sponsoring Surya's artistic needs like paint, canvases etc Surya also hopes to pick up some digital skills that will help him reach a wider audience.
Anyone who is personally willing to help out Surya by buying one of his paintings can reach out to him on the below number.
