Michael and Mercy Varghese from Changanassery in Kerala, need to repair their house urgently before the monsoons in Kerala. Aged 65 and 60, they are not able to work these days and are dependent on the government pension of Rs. 2500 per month. Michael was a daily wage worker earlier, but is not able to work anymore due to a heart condition.
They are now staying in an old house that was built by the local church in 3 cents of land. The tin sheet roof is leaking and in bad condition. The house is also in need of urgent repairs. Some well-wishers came together to repair the house and build a western toilet for them considering their old age. The total cost of repairs would come to Rs. 150,000. They approached MicroCharity for financial assistance.
