Every monthly donation helps people like Thirupathaiah with livelihood

Thirupathaiah was a tribal fisherman from Parvathipuram, Andhra Pradesh. He had a limited income as he used angler hooks which caught one fish at a time. He could not afford fishing nets that caught large catchment of fish at once. On days, when he couldn't catch enough fish, they went hungry.

Through a survey, CERDS learnt that Thirupathaiah struggled with lack of a proper livelihood source. They provided him with a nylon multifilament fishing net that caught large numbers of fish. This small help has made a huge difference in his income and he is now able to meet his family's basic needs.

Donate to a fishing net and you can help a family improve their living conditions and have two meals a day.
