Ouseph from Alapuzha, Kerala has been struggling with his house construction, fate dealing him not just one, but two blows affecting his life and his family. He was working as a fisherman, and had started constructing his house when he suffered a stroke. After some medication and rest, he recovered enough to restart the construction. But a second stroke soon after, left him paralyzed on one side of the body. Now he is not able to work or move around by himself.
His wife, Rosamma is employed through a government project, but there is no regular job. She earns Rs. 3500 per month and is the only earning member of the family. Their son Alan is doing his Plus two, studying in a seminary, and daughter Alayana is in 8th standard.
The family lives in the coastal area of Alapuzha in a temporary shed made of wooden planks, covered with tarpaulin. They’ve been struggling in this single room structure for the past 4 years, unable to complete the house. Now, the priests at Holy Trinity Ashram have promised to help with doors and windows for the house. They need Rs. 87,000 more to complete the house, and they approached MicroCharity for financial assistance.
