Disabled orphan in East Godavari

EENADU Paper Link 
This girl's mother committed suicide by jumping into a canal, overcome by financial burdens in caring for her mentally disabled 4 year old child. Her husband, Srinivas, also lost his life when he jumped into the canal in an effort to save his wife. The baby is mute, deaf and unable to walk. Sadly not having enough money to treat their child's disabilities, the parents passed away on Sunday, August 13th, and were found the next morning in East Godavari district, India.  
Please donate whatever you can to ensure this girl a happier and healthier life in the future. 
We are in contact with her family, and all money raised will be given to this girl and her family members to help pay for her treatment, therapy, and other costs. Amidst the worry of her care, we hope her family won't have to worry about the money.
Once the goal is reached, we will have the family open a separate account for her and make it so that the money is withdrawn through a fixed deposit system, where they will be able to use a set amount of money per month.
We will also try to get some officials (collectors, police, etc) involved once we reach our goal to oversee the process and show the money is not being misused.
We sincerely thank you for every dollar you are able to give. Every little bit helps and we're immensely grateful.

About Me:
My name is Meghana Dodda, and I'm a high schooler at the Davidson Academy Online School, based in Reno, Nevada. 
I'm an Indian-born US citizen and currently reside in Newtown, PA.
I do not have any relation to Tejaswi but simply wanted to raise money for her health and other financial needs. I was reading the Eenadu news, and decided to make a GoFundMe to see if I could raise some money.
We are planning to either make a fixed deposit account in her name in the next few weeks, or donate the money to the orphanage she will be sent to, again in her name (by sponsoring her).
The raised money will be put in a fixed deposit, in the name of Tejaswi Kamuju, keeping the girl's grandfather (Rambabu Kamuju) and uncle (Narsimhamurthy Kudipudi) as guardian with a provision to recieve only interest but not to withdraw the deposit amount till she attains 18 years. 
Her uncle's email address is kudipudimurthi@gmail.com
My father (Rajasekhar Dodda) is working with a few other active donors to send the amount collected to her.
The people we are working with include: Obul Reddy Baddam, Sreedharreddy Panta, Kranthikumar Mula, Chalapati, Narsimhamurthy Kudipudi (her uncle).

We're withdrawing the funds and setting up a portion of it as a fixed deposit on Tejaswi's name and using the rest for her health expenses and present maintenance at Ashajoythi (Please find up to date information on Tejaswi and contact me if you need additional information or would like to provide me additional suggestions to help the kid).
