Muthukumari is no more a burden to her family

Muthumari is a 75-year-old widow. She lives with her daughter Nangaiar and her two granddaughters in Maranthai village in the Alankulam Taluk of Tamilnadu.

Nangaiar is a 41-year-old widow. She works as a daily wage agricultural laborer. She earns a meager Rs.35 ($.047) per day whenever she can find work.

They struggle to make ends meet and go hungry many days.

To add to their troubles, Muthumari got diagnosed with Tuberculosis. Nangaiar was already struggling to manage the family. Her aged mother's illness turned out to be an added burden which she could not afford.

This is when the staff of Vizhuthukal Trust got to know about the family and visited them.

The staff found out the pathetic condition of the family of four women.

They first conducted a thorough checkup and arranged medicines from the Government hospital at Alankulam for Muthumari.

They enrolled her in their grocery program. She received 10 kg. of rice, grocery, a saree, health drink, and vegetables.

Muthumari's health improved drastically after the intervention. The regular medical care and groceries proved to be a boon to her.

Muthumari is no more a burden to her family. One can see the rays of happiness on her face now.
