Support Kamala's family after her Tragic death

On September 12, 2020, we lost our dear friend Kamala Polavarapu, a 27 year old young woman residing in Cleveland, OH. While she was visiting water Falls in Tennessee , she unfortunately slipped and fell into the water. She tried very hard to fight for life but unfortunately got trapped under a log that was caught in the water current. Her body was found 45 minutes later by the local Water Rescue Team, but it was too late.

Kamala unfortunately does not have family in the United States and all her immediate family are still back in India (Andhra Pradesh). Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, all efforts are currently being made to send her body back home to India so that her family can see her for one last time.

Kamala was the main financial supporter for her family - working very hard to pay off her loans which she took to pay for her education, come to United States, and support her parents financially. Her parents are not only grieving the tragic loss of their daughter, but will not have a way to pay off those loans without our help.

There are no words to express this loss of our beloved friend, who was full of light, energy, and joy. We can only imagine what the family is going through. We ask you to please help support Kamala’s family during these challenging times so that the financial burden is one less thing that they have to worry about. We understand that COVID-19 has proven to be a very difficult financial time for many across the world, but even a small amount would go a long way to help Kamala’s family.

Please keep her in your prayers.

We appreciate all your help. Thank you for your time and support on behalf of us and Kamala’s family.
All proceeds will go directly to the Family. Please feel free to contact us.
