The monsoons will be arriving soon enough, as i write this, Ujwalla, an honest hard working girl with dreams of a proper career and life, is struggling just to fulfill her daily basic needs.
Located in Mahakali, Mumbai, she was a normal college educated working girl leading a happy life, until her OCD problem started increasing leaving her exausted and frusterated, she could not help in the home much due to this mental disorder, it got worse later as her father passed away due to a high sugar level, she blamed herself for not having diagnosed it and kept the diabetes in control, soon after this her mother passed away too, she was severely attached to her parents, and adding to all this was a not so cooperative sister who moved away having gotten married to her lover against her parents wishes, these series of events were over 5 years ago, her depression over her parents death combined with her ever increasing OCD problem and total lack of help with it put her into a deep semi consious state, she was hospitalised and taken care of by some very kind people for about 3 years, she was in a very pathetic condition and on a wheelchair, the only person staying in her parents house with her ns her elder brother who abuses her physically and does nothing much for her daily needs, he himself being unemployed and living in the same inhabitable 15x30 room with loads of scrap and a hard floor to sleep on, and a little corner to take bath, that too with water that is brought from the outside water sources, there is NO water supply in the house. He being fit and gfine can take care of himself but this girl, Ujwalla, somewhere in her 30's with a small short lean frame, cannot.
Her house has an old style LOW floor, which fills up in the monsoons.
So with a sense of urgency, here i place before the good people here, a chance to help her :
1. Get the floor repaired. $1000
2. Get a small wall made on the front lawn, where as of now, people make a ruckus and dogs move about, and she is terrified of dogs. $500
3. Get her water supply in her house. Not sure how much it would cost, but under $400
4. help her get her basic needs like clothes, medicines, some furniture. $500
5. This is optional, and may require more funds, the idea is to build an extra floor, ground +1, so she can rent out the top floor and get a decent income. this may cost upto $10,000
But the basic ameneties, namely POINTS 1 TO 4 are most important and may require $3000
If there is enough response, i will update her pictures and a video of her talking about herself and her situation, and also show the house and its condition.
Until then, THank you
