So far I have always been asking you folks who wrote in with offers of financial help to hold on, till I identified the needy, got them to open bank accounts and then got in touch with you.
Well, this lady has opened her bank account now. She is the widow of Thakur Budhabhai Waghela, the GT Hospital sweeper who was gunned down while having his dinner in his home. She has three children and two aged inlaws to support. She will get a job on compassionate grounds no doubt, but it is a tough life ahead.
Do make your cheques out to:
Mrs Karuna Thakur Waghela
(Savings Bank Account No: SB11498, Corporation Bank, Mahanagar Palika Branch, Near Rang Bhavan)
You are welcome to do direct fund transfers. If you would like to send across a cheque or a DD, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the address to courier these cheques to us so we can ensure they are handed over to her personally.
