THE STORY:

The story below is about Munni, for whom we're raising money to build her a house.  Read about that below.  A quick update about the $2,895 of the funds raised while I walked the Camino.  This money will provide needed repairs/improvements to the house where the three orphaned children, Siva, Gomathi, and Murugan live.  I had a chance to visit with them and see firsthand what our fundraising will accomplish for them.  Thank you!!  Now, read on about Munni's family - then help us reach our goal of raising a total of $5,000 to help her.  Some of that's already been raised.  The rest is up to all of us who feel drawn to make a difference for this family.

Munni's Story

Munni (first photo) lives in one of the small villages outside Namakkal, India.  Five of us traveled from Denver to meet her, and many other people being helped by this and other fundraising efforts in and around Namakkal.  I've told Munni's story of heartbreak and desperate uncertainty in a blog-post titled "Notes From India - Munni's Story, on March 25th.  

The short version is Munni and her mother (third photo) care for Munni's two orphaned grandchildren (second and fourth photos).  The house they live in is tiny and rented.  Because of India's land laws, they are about to be evicted with nowhere to go, except a small plot of land Munni's mothe rmanaged to buy.  But that cost all the rupees she could scrape together. We are halfway to paying for a simple house to be built on that land (total cost is roughly $5,000).  You can read more about that in the blog post.  

Their situation is urgent.  I've been to the village and I assure you there isn't a convenient apartment building nearby.  Villages are tiny, as are the homes in them.  And there are not that many of those.  Finding another house to rent will be vitually impossible.  And even if they do, they will face the same heartbreaking eviction over and over.  Every contribution makes a difference.  Please help two women who want nothing more than to provide safety, stability, and medical care for two vulnerable kids.
