    This fundraiser will benefit

    Transgender community

    from Pune, Maharashtra

As the year comes to an end most of us are busy thinking of Christmas gifts and festivities. The situation is drastically different for the trans community in India. Covid-19 has severely affected trans people in Pune. Daily wage trans laborers and those from the Hijra community have lost their sources of income. Some of these women are educated but cannot find jobs due to societal discrimination.

The pandemic has even made begging on the streets difficult for them. They face regular harassment. They rarely receive government support. Whatever support they received from the community has drastically diminished during the pandemic. They're struggling to afford necessities and pay rent.

You will be shocked to know their daily earnings are less than INR 200 (less than USD 3).

Your Support (For up to 250 transwomen) to free them from the shackles of poverty

INR 1400 / USD 20 /  EUR 20 per person for monthly essential rations 
INR 500 / USD 10 / UR 10  per person for medicines and emergency medical funds (Aggregated for medical needs)
Any other amount is most welcome (Aggregated for Clothes / Covid kits / Daily rations)

Even if you want to stay anonymous please email us separately at to send you words of thanks from the recipients.
