Harpreet lives in Tarn Taran city with her family. She is fond of technology and wants to grow up as a computer engineer. Her father, Nachhatar Singh tries hard to provide for this family of 6. He sells milk from the one cow he has and also leases his half acreage of land, earning a yearly income of 35,000 rupees - this is less than $1000 each year. The house the family is living in is not theirs, its Nachhatar's brothers house, who has moved out to Bombay with his family. Nachhatar's original house is falling apart and not livable.
Harpreet's parents want their daughter to go to school and get a good education, but they cannot afford to pay her tuition much longer, especially if anyone else in their family falls sick and needs medical treatment. Medical expenses in India are extremely high and capable of devastating families. Medicine is a right, not a privilege. When you sponsor a child through SAF CANADA, along with covering the child’s tuition fees we make sure every member of a child’s immediate family receives the medical treatment they need. If you sponsor Harpreet today, we will be able to make sure that nothing robs this young girl of the opportunity to learn and the chance for her family to live a happy, healthy life.
