COVID has been hard on many communities, especially those in remote rural and tribal locations. Mr. Naitham Sudhakar, a Thotti, lost his job during the COVID pandemic, and along with it, his family of 4 lost their home.
Though he managed to get a part-time work as a daily wage labourer and his wife as a cook, the income wasn’t sufficient to provide proper shelter for the family.
We got connected to Sudhakar through Divya Devarajan Ma’am, the then Collector of #Adilabad. And through the generous support of Telugu Association of North America (TANA), we were able to support Sudhakar with the construction of his house and fulfil one of the most basic needs.
Sudhakar and his family have now moved into the new house and are very happy and grateful to TANA.
He shared “I am now living a respectable life with my family, without worrying too much about the shelter. Now, I need to find livelihood support to help my family. My family and I are very thankful to TANA and Divya Ma’am for supporting me.”
