Project Soften the fall

Location  Town: Naroda, Taluka: Khanpur, Dist: Panch Mahals, State: Gujarat, Country: India

Status  Started – September 2015
Challenge  Here is a life of a once healthy man who supported himself and his mother with the help of a job as a clerk at a travel agency in Mumbai. Jigneshbhai Rawal, age 44, and his mother Sarojben Rawal, age 64, are support for each other. An unfortunate fall in the bathroom left Jigneshbhai with multiple fractures on his hands, legs and backbone. After multiple surgeries (including rods fitted in his hands and legs) he is unable to walk. The cost of these surgeries has wiped of the little savings that he managed to put aside. Both, mother and son are at the mercy of neighbors. They stay in an old building (with no elevators) on the 3rd floor, so imagine going up and down the stairs in his condition, event for urgent critical matters. Next to impossible!

Solution   A generous support from Hitesh Patel from Edison New Jersey helped Jigneshbhai to pay his monthly medicine and food for one year.

Costs   Estimate – 16,000 rupees
Helping Hands Aravind Nair, Hitesh Patel
