Our local scout who took up this COLTS COVID CHALLENGE went to meet Habib after we sent our support to this brave covid warrior and his family. He has responded with a letter, thanking TU and explaining how this money will go a long way to help with food, medicine and the education of his family during these difficult times.
This particular project is over : Rs.5,000/-

Name of the individual- Habib Dalal
Family members - 5
Source of income - max 50/- to 70/- per day
This person is partially handicapped as he is disabled from his left leg. He used to sell tea in the shop next to his home but due to lockdown the rent of the shop became impossible for him. He refused to give up. Hence, after the lockdown, he has just re-opened, but this time he started to put a table outside of his home and now sells tea to the public from there. But can hardly get a profit of Rs 50 to 70 max., and this is not enough to keep his family going.
DONATION REQUIRED: Rs 5000/- would help him to keep his trade and family going.
