Homeless Cancer and Stroke Patient
Story of Vijayalakshmi and Rajan
Vijayalakshmi and Rajan
They have lived in our community in Wayanad all their lives. Vijayalkshmi is 60 and has cancer. Rajan is 70 and is paralysed on the left side of his body after suffering a stroke.
When we first began conversations with them the couple were living in the shack you can see in very poor conditions. Along with their son Vishnu, they had continuously reached out to the local Gram Panchayat for help to improve their housing situation for 3 years with no success.
With the monsoon season fast approaching the likelihood of their shack surviving the rains was not good.
To make matters worse neither Vijayalkshmi nor Rajan has a pension to fall back on.
The family was surviving on the Rs 8,000pm generated trough Vishnu’s job and were already financially stretched.
What we did
|S.v.Laiju,||TGG Foundation Chairman|
|Prem Kumar||TGG Foundation Working Committee Member|
|Anitha Manikandan||Panchayat Ward Member|
|Kurian Sebastian||Local representative and ex-panchayat member|
|Vishnu||Son of Vijayalakshmi & Rajan|
As we saw the progress were very slow to get any sort of relief to meet the requirements of a house before the monsoon sets in, Vishnu along with the support of the local community and TGG Foundation decided to change their destiny. TGG Foundations contacted some of the noble souls who immediately came forward and extended their whole hearted support for this cause. It reminds us time and again that we have to be the change we wish to see in our society. We share the joy of elevating one more family from acute poverty.
We thank the Almighty for giving us an opportunity to help the suffering ones.
Our sincere gratitude to the generous people who have upheld humanity.
