Nandri offers hope to an abandoned child


Sharmi was only 6 months old when her mother passed away. Her father did not want to keep her as she would be a burden to him so he abandoned her, leaving her with her elderly maternal grandmother. Her grandmother was already caring for her severely disabled daughter and had hardly enough money to feed themselves. They struggled financially but did the best they could for the little girl left in their care.

 During the COVID19 lockdown, their situation became dire. They had no income, no money for food and nowhere to turn for help. Feeding the family had become a daily struggle and there was no possibility of Sharmi remaining in education. Even though she is a bright and hard working student, she was destined to a life of low paid menial work and poverty. Sharmi’s Grandmother heard of Nandri and the work that our organisation is doing with poverty stricken mothers and their families. In desperation the three of them travelled 120 kms on a motorbike to meet Joe our director and ask for some vital food aid and financial help.

Nandri has agreed to support this empoverished family and Sharmi will be included in our sponsorship programme. With our help, Sharmi will be able to remain in education. Her future is now secure. With Nandri’s financial support, she can achieve anything she desires in life and continue on to 3rd level education and a fulfilling career of her choice, secure in the knowledge that Nandri will always be there to help.

Nandri has given hope and a promising future to this little family. With Sharmi’s education guaranteed, she will be able to financially support her grandmother and aunt when she graduates, so breaking the cycle of extreme poverty for this family.

We can only do our work with the help of you, our sponsors and donors. We would like to say a big “Nandri“ for making it possible to give Sharmi the promising future she deserves.

if you would like to help Nandri to help more children like Sharmi please donate.  Your generosity enables us to change lives.
