As we embark upon our journey as a married couple, Harish and I regularly reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for from the basic necessities of life to a loving group of family and friends. We have more than we can ask for and definitely don't need any cutlery or kitchenware as we both wouldn't know what to do with it. In lieu of a wedding gift we ask that you help us support a few causes that are close to our heart.
Harish's family is originally from the Palakkad district of Kerala, a coastal state
of South India. Kerala was recently devastated by one of the deadliest floods in over a century. The death toll continues to rise and hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced from this tragic calamity. We ask that you donate to Global Giving an organization dedicated to helping survivors rebuild their homes and their community.
My family comes from Andhra Pradesh another coastal state of South India. South Asia is unfortunately one of the fastest growing regions of human trafficking in the world.
We ask that you help donate to the reintegration and rehabilitation efforts of young girls forced into the flesh trade. Prajwala is an organization based in Hyderabad and run by Dr. Sunitha Krishnan which is dedicated to rescuing these girls and providing them with psychosocial support, education and vocational training.
Thank you for all your help!
