The husband was employed in the tourism sector and the wife as the caretaker of an elderly woman, but following the Easter Attacks in 2019 and COVID-19 in 2020-21, they have lost their jobs and the family has been struggling to survive. They have 3 school-going children (aged 11, 14 & 18), who have not been able to attend school since 2019. The wife’s brother was employed in the entertainment industry, and is currently unemployed due to the COVID 19 pandemic. They all currently live in one house with the wife’s mother.
The husband now uses his personal vehicle for Pick Me and Uber Eats deliveries to earn some income, but it is insufficient to cover daily expenses. They have outstanding utility (electricity & water) bills amounting to Rs. 100,000, which must be paid urgently as they have received Red Notices. They also have a monthly vehicle lease and loan payment of Rs. 58,000 to pay off.
Because we're committed to using 100% of every rupee donated to fund people in need, we rely on small optional donations from people like you to help cover our operating expenses.
By donating to our operations, you're investing in our long-term mission by helping us pay for things like credit card processing fees, supplies, staff, travelling and other operational costs.
Thanks for helping us keep the lights on!×
