I'm a trans woman from Davangere, Karnataka. The pandemic has hit my community hard and we need your help. We are 40 transgender people, some of whom are HIV positive. Our income was largely dependent on sex work and begging. That is, before the pandemic struck.
We have been struggling to make ends meet ever since.
The current outbreak and the subsequent statewide lockdown have completely choked our sources of income. There has been no financial relief from the government either.
In short, we need to feed ourselves. I request you to help me raise ₹60,000. This amount will provide 40 of us with ration kits for one month.
In a time of acute crisis, please extend your kindness to the transgender community of Davangere.
Thank you for your generosity. Please take care and stay safe.
NOTE: We are collecting funds from India Only
