Ranu Burman and Sunita Napit are both residents of Shahdol district in Madhya Pradesh.
The women approached Sewa Nyaya Utthan Foundation with requests for cycles so they can easily commute to work.
Both women told us that pandemic hit them hard and resulted in financial losses. The women, both neighbours, began working to fend for their families.
Ranu told us she was overburdened with work and travel as she is trying to recuperate from her losses due to Corona.
She told us she walks several kilometres to work.
Sunita told us she walks five kilometres daily to carry out her duty as a masseur for children.
Sunita’s husband too lost work in the pandemic and things have not been the same since.
Sewa Nyaya Uttan Foundation helped them both in saving time and money by offering them new-age cycles for their daily commute.
