Padam, Mother Putali and 2 yr old brother Aashish
Padam's father "Jase" was a good father, he worked in India as a truck driver for three years and regularly came home to see his family. Late one night in late October 2019 the family got a call asking a family member to come to India to collect "Jase's body. He was found dead from blunt force trauma to the back of the head, nothing is known about the circumstances of his death and no suspect has been caught.
The death of Jase as shaken the family terribly and the loss of income, thrown the family into financial despair. Padam's aging grandfather has gone back to working in the fields to make ends meet. His wage barely covers food costs for the 5 family members.
Padam's position in his school is in jeopardy as the family can no longer afford to send him to the school. He is a bright student and it's a good school who we have strong ties with, and we want to see him stay there.
We are looking for a $36 a month sponsor to help the family. A sponsorship will cover all educational expenses and secure Padam's place in his current school and provide much needed relief to this grieving family.
