Recently we had an opportunity to help a Bhagnari lady, who had to undergo an operation on her spine. We approached her relatives in Dubai, who promptly arranged to send the requested amount for the medical treatment. We wish the concerned Bhagnari lady a full recovery from her ailment and also thank her relatives for arranging the financial aid. Thanks are also due to one of our Bhagnari youngster Dr. Satyen Mehta for performing the operation free of charge, which helped to ease the financial burden to a great extent.
Although in the above instance, Bhagnari Welfare Society (BWS) was able to arrange the medical assistance, it is now becoming increasingly difficult to meet the requests received by us. BWS is currently facing an acute shortage of funds and is finding it hard to arrange medical assistance in all the cases undertaken on a day to day basis.
BWS entirely relies on donations from the members of the community. Donations are received either:
- for increasing the corpus or
- for meeting specific requests (similar to the instance narrated above)
The increase in corpus helps us to increase the interest income, which is used for:
- monthly payment to the poor families (Rs. 1,000 is given to 25 families per month)
- medical aid
- educational and vocational loans
- miscellaneous expenses
Due to the increase in the medical costs, it is quite possible that we may not be able to arrange the required medical assistance in future. We therefore earnestly request you to donate generously to Bhagnari Welfare Society and thereby help your poor Bhagnari brothers and sisters. We have recently received suggestions to seek assistance from non-Bhagnari charitable organizations and would sincerely like to stay away from using this option. However, if the current situation continues, we may have to arrange external help also.
Your contributions will be duly acknowledged and appreciated.
