She lives in Sion Koliwada in a tiny room, with her one and a half year old daughter. Her landlady was kind enough to take us to her.
Today was the first month anniversary of her husband's passing away. Rinku is barely 24-25, has studied upto grade 8 and is literate. She knows how to stitch and is keen to start earning a living. Her brother from the village is down to live here with her.
She seems to be a strong person and knows that she has to take charge of her life now.
Our efforts will be to get her some vocational training and eventually a job. If anyone knows of any organisation/NGO that could provide her with training of any sort which would eventually result in a job, please do let us know.
Also if anyone would like to help her financially, do let us know and we will send you the details.

Subject: A Personal Appeal
This is a personal appeal from my side for contribution towards medical expenses of Pratiksha Jadhav, the daughter of my maid Preeti Jadhav.
Partiksha all of 14 years of age is a very bright student studying at the Versova Welfare School and is the only child of Preeti, a single parent having no relatives in mumbai. A week back Pratiksha has been admitted in a semi paralyzed state to the Belle-Vue Nursing Home at Manish Nagar, Andheri. Post a plethora of expensive tests she has been diagonised with Guillian Barre' Syndrome http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001704/, which is more frightening than it sounds. This little understood infection which is still in the realm of medical research is specific to asian countries, attacks the immunological system and results in an individuals defence system attacking the victims own body. Survival rates are not very good but are known to be better for youngsters.
Currently, the only course recommended this infection is a daily dose of 3 immununoglobulins injections over a period of 5 days, a total of 15. Each injections costs around Rs. 15,000/- which we have managed to negotiate down to Rs. 10,000/-. The entire cost of this immediate treatment is currently around Rs. 2 Lacs and I am enclosing a letter from the hospital for the same. Preeti works hard all day long to provide the best education for her only child and earns an monthly income of around Rs. 10,000/- and pays a rent of Rs. 4,000/- and has fixed deposits of around Rs. 40,000/. This situation is clearly beyond her financial means. Post this treatment which should save Pratiksha's life, medication would be needed for most of her life.
The Shingwekar family has made substantial contributions and is committed to bringing in more cash for the treatment. Several other families who know Preeti are also pitching in. I have already spoken to a few charitable trusts who have promised all help.
If you would like to contribute to Pratiksha medical treatment (it would be perfectly alright if you don't), you can make a cheque directly in the name of Belle Vue Nursing Home. I can assure you that my own self and my immediate family would be involved in the actual usage of your contribution and receipts for the same would be drawn in your name.
Thanks and regards,
