This is the scary reality that many people face in the Indian jungle where The Tulsi Trust operates. During the medical camps that we organise every two weeks we meet many people who not only have lost a leg but, because of Indian culture and tradition, have also lost their dignity, their ability to work and sustain their families; they become poor, homeless, unwanted, outcastes.
As you can see from this photograph taken during the outreach medical camp, Mansing was using a wooden peg to help him get around.
One of our Trustees asked her friends for donations to set up a 'pop-up' charity shop during a weekend to raise enough funds to help Mansing. After an overwhelming number of donations a local perfume studio in Glastonbury was turned into a charity shop for a weekend, and soon after the funds raised during the weekend were sent to India.
So there you have it...a little story about how much we can achieve with just a little help from our friends.
