    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu


We are from a poor economic background. My Father was an auto driver., earning daily wages. Running our family financially has always been a daily struggle. Nevertheless, my father took good care of us.

He was a loving husband, caring father of his two daughters and a good human. Though we didn't have any savings, he was our pillar of strength and gave us the best he could afford. Despite all economic struggles, he encouraged us to pursue education. I completed BCA and my younger sister completed B.Tech, BioTechnology (82%). However since we could not pay the pending due of 3L, my sister did not receive her degree certificate from her college. We both started working to support our father, meagre amount, but to ensure we pay our monthly bills.

When COVID-19 came into our life, passing each day became our biggest challenge, due to the financial stress it created. Little did we know that it would change our life upside down. To support our family, my father was continuing to drive his auto and one day he contracted COVID-19. His infection grew day by day and despite medications, his condition worsened. We admitted him in Chengalpattu government hospital. Despite doctors' best efforts, he passed away in April'21. Our pillar and guardian was gone. We performed rituals for him with the monetary support received from others.

Me and my sister are unmarried. We have no savings whatsoever. We will do our best to support our mother. We need your help to raise the amount, to pay off the educational fee due for my sister, so that she could get her degree certificate and try for a better job, help create a support structure for our mother and towards expenses for our marriage.

Your support will help us a lot!!! Please help, thanks.
