Muniyappa, aged 52 is physically challenged and a beggar. One of MicroCharity’s volunteers recently met Muniyappa begging at the gates of CST retreat center, Bangalore. He wanted help in construction of his house in government-allotted land, at Bannerghatta, Bangalore.
Muniyappa’s wife, Lakshmamma is suffering from asthma and is unable to work. He has a daughter who is married, and a son who is still in school. Two well-wishers have promised to contribute small amounts towards the construction. There is also a government grant for disabled people which he can avail once the foundation is done. The cost for constructing the foundation is Rs.65,900 including material and labour cost.
