Fundraiser for my aunt who just lost her husband

2020 has been perhaps one of the most challenging years in all our lives. It has gotten even more dreadful for my aunt with the passing of my uncle, Gautam Chakraborty. He was suffering from meningitis malaria which resulted in multiple organ failure and he died of a massive heart attack on December 17th and left us forever. 

Gautam Chakraborty was the sole breadwinner of his family, survived by his wife who is a housewife and a chronic diabetic patient, Keya Chakraborty, and his twenty-one year old daughter, Poushali Chakraborty, a student pursuing her Master’s Degree in Rabindra Bharati University in Kolkata. Due to the prolonged pandemic, most of their reserves got burnt out along with the unplanned medical expenses spent for both my aunt and uncle’s treatment. My uncle’s sudden demise has put Keya and Poushali in a very difficult situation. 

We are creating this fund to help support my aunt’s immediate living expenses and my cousin’s educational expenses. We hope to raise $30,000 for my aunt and my cousin as they are suffering through the loss of their close family member. It would be great if you could please contribute any amount you wish and help me support their family. No amount is small, and all contributions will be sent to my aunt for the use of her medication, education of her daughter and their daily needs. 

If you are willing and able to donate, please support us by clicking on the donate button. If you are unable to donate, it would mean the world to me if you could please share this post. 

We appreciate all of your support!
