Kochurani Mathew from Changanacherry, Kerala needs our help in repairing their leaking house before the monsoons set in. She is staying with her husband and 2 sons, studying in 11th and 12th standards respectively. Her husband met with multiple accidents over the past 3 year and is not able to work anymore. Kochurani takes up small tailoring works at her home, but the income is barely enough to meet their daily expenses and children’s education.
As monsoons started in Kerala, their house started leaking badly to the point that they have to dry the school books in the sun after every rain. The family does not have any other place to move to. They approached JCI Nalukody for financial assistance in repairing the roof. On inspection, they found that the roof tiles were broken in multiple places. And the wooden frame holding the roof has been damaged with age. The frame needs to be replaced with a more durable steel frame and the roof tiles have to be relaid, replacing any broken ones. MicroCharity in association with JCI is taking up this repair work at a total expense of Rs. 70,000.
