[ZESTCaste] Wheelchair and sewing machine details and photos (Dec 2, 2011 function)


Dear Donors and friends,
As you know, on Dec 2, 2011, FFEI gifted a wheel chair and a sewing machine to a brother (handicapped) and his sister (who discontinued her education to take care of him) from a poor Dalit family. I am herewith sending you a link to the photos of that event. It also has the receipts for both the items as submitted by our coordinators.
Ms Ajaya and Mr Michael Jonas, California donated Rs. 10,000 towards the wheel chair. Actaul cost was Rs.10,000.
Mr Raj Cherukonda, Illinois donated Rs. 7,000 in memory of his father late Mr Venkanna towards the sewing machine. Its price was Rs.4,500.
Some time back I erroneously reported that the sewing machine cost was Rs. 10,000. In fact the total cost of it was Rs.7,000 (including other required tailoring material such as a table to work and other tailoring related material). Error was mine and apologize for it.
Please visit the following link for photos.
My sincere thanks to Mrs and Mr Jonas (for Wheelchair) and Mr Raj (for Sewing machine). They brightened two lives with their timely intervention. This poor family can never forget their kind gesture.
Please write to me if any questions.
With much regards
An educated man without character and humility was more dangerous than a beast. If his education was detrimental to the welfare of poor, he was a curse to society.
-Babasaheb Dr B R Ambedkar
