Aishwarya Home
Valsamma, a widow from a poor hindu family

This is Valsamma, a widow from a poor Hindu family. She along with her teenage daughter lives in this small shed, they call home. Valsamma works as a seasonal farm worker (coolie) to earn a living. Life is very hard, meager income and very little resources.

It is her lifelong dream to build a small house, but it is beyond her reach.

Valsamma Family Home

Valsmamma contacted ICON thru Grace Charities, Idukki for help. She has nowhere else to turn. One of our volunteers visited the place and witnessed the dilapidated living condition.

Estimated expense to build a small house is around Rs. 300,000. As a community, if we all can do a little, we can easily help her fulfill her dream.

Please help us to help Valsamma.

This will be our second “Aishwarya Home”.

We would like to complete this home before monsoon.
