Maniyan and family need our help in completing their house construction, which currently only has a single room on a foundation. This was built with Rs. 2 lakhs received from the government. Maniyan is disabled, and is not able to work. He lives with his family consisting of his wife and 3 children; 2 of them still in school.
His wife is working as a housemaid, and the family’s monthly income is only Rs. 10,000, which is barely enough to meet their daily needs and children’s education. They are desperate to build a bathroom attached to the house, so that the girls will not have to go outside into the makeshift bathroom they have put together outside the house.
A bathroom and small kitchen need to be added to the existing house, which will cost Rs. 3 lakhs. The family does not have any money to spare for this, and they approached MicroCharity for financial support.
