With a little help from us, Lijan can overcome his disability and start earning again. Lijan was a daily wage labourer and earning enough to sustain his family till he fell down from a tree 7 years back. He is paralyzed below the waist and is now scraping a living, making umbrellas and also washing powder at home. Lijan’s wife is a construction worker. His son is studying in 7th standard and daughter in 3rd standard.

A volunteer approached MicroCharity for help in buying a customized two-wheeler, which will help him market his products or even sell lottery tickets to earn money. This would be a major support for the family’s daily expenses and kids’ education. The cost of two-wheeler including customization comes to Rs.80,000. Friends and well-wishers have promised to give Rs.20,000.
