For help, he turned to WhatsApp.
The family of 5 from Choros ‘A’ Village in Lower Chongtong, Darjeeling is headed by an old mother. No one in the family is able to earn. Her elder daughter Maitheeba Tamang is blind, younger Sita Tamang is physically handicap, her brother too is deaf and dumb. The entire family are suffering from mental and physical help condition.
Ashim says, “I came to know about their story through our local channel Himali Channel and requested friends on our WhatApps group ‘Shayoog Let’s help” to join hands.
The group called “Shayoog – Lets Help” of which Ashim is a member, has been active on WhatsApp providing assistance and support to those in need. Those who could, provided helped from as far away as Saudi Arabia.”
Ashim adds, “Even in the time of demonetization, we were able to collect Rs 10000 and on last Monday i.e 26 th November2016 we handed over the collection.
Modestly Ashim says, “Though the amount we collected might be a small amount from our side, but we thought it will help them in some or the other way. In future, too our group will be eager to come up with this kind of help.”

We SALUTE all of these AMAZING INDIVIDUALS who are the living examples of “Darjeeling Spirit” which sets us apart from the rest of the world. To care for one’s own is easy, but to care for a family who is a complete stranger requires a very very compassionate heart, and a loving, and deeply caring group of individuals.
We THANK YOU all for your AWESOME ACT OF GENEROSITY… and for being such a FINE EXAMPLE for our society.
