Mary and Joy are a poor couple having no children. Both of them are really supportive of each other and have lead a much contented life. Joy was doing odd jobs, ground cleaning and Mary used to help him in this work when about a year back Joy had a stroke and fell down. He was rushed to the hospital by the neighbors but it was diagnosed that his right side of the body was already paralyzed. His face was disfigured and it is difficult to understand his stammering. They were living with their daily earnings and Joy’s ailment threw this poor couple to ultimate misery and starvation.

Joy was admitted to the hospital for more than two months and then discharged leaving Mary with the responsibility to care for her bed ridden husband. Now their life is fully dependant on the mercy of others. Recently Mary lost vision in her right eye. She needs an eye surgery in the near future. Both of them require heavy medication and they have no means for their daily survival. They are living in a small house built with the help of government grant. It is the only relief in their distressed life that they have a safe place to dwell.

This poor couple is looking for some kind assistance to make both ends meet. Any help given to them will be greatly appreciated.
