Here are the details on the family...
Gireeshan is 52, and he used to be a manual laborer (coolie), but was diagnosed with scizophrenia, and can no longer work. He also broke his leg recently and is bed ridden now. His wife is a homemaker. They have two children, a son and a daughter. The older son is trying to finish college with help from a non-profit organization Parivaar NCPO (http://www.parivaarnfpa.org). The younger daughter (17) has developmental disabilities and needs help in all her daily matters. At present, they do not have a house, and are living with Gireeshan’s brother in Kozhikode. There are 12 people living in that house.
Parivaar NCPO is helping to build them a house of their own, and with the funds raised we can help make that possible.
