Water facilities at UtkalBalashram

May 2010

Sometimes, access to a small amount of money can help tide over a personal crisis.

Subarna had a young daughter who had an underage marriage, but was subsequently abandoned by her husband. The daughter has been under severe stress and Subarana has also been trying to get some medical & legal help in the matter. She needed some money urgently. We extended the small help. We’re trying to figure out if such small emergency grants are scaled up to cover a large number of beneficiaries then will it lead to any sustainable easing of economic emergencies of the poor.
