Five years ago I visited Kerala and became friendly with a lovely young girl in our hotel restaurant. She was a local girl.
I had taken over lots of little toys and stationary etc and asked if she could direct me to best place to give.
She told me how she had been abandoned by her father after her Mum died and eventually ended up in an orphanage close to where we were.
She took me there and I have returned every year.
She has now married and just had a baby. No longer works. Her husband had a job on cruise ships but, of course, has had no work for over a year.
This is not a tale of woe from her but I know they live a very impoverished life.
I would love to acknowledge her wedding and recent birth but I am unsure of the best way to send money to India
I don’t want to ask her. Her written English is not good.
Plus, if it’s not practical, I don’t want to not follow through.
Has anyone experience of sending money there?
I don’t have address or bank details but assume I could get those.
Thank you in advance
