Maxo’s own life was touched significantly by Covid 19 when he lost two people close to him to the virus during this appeal. He didn’t let that become an obstacle but a fuel to motivate him to raise money to help the Dalit communities in India and Nepal whose situation is dire. He said that “It felt wrong to let the thing that you are fundraising for get in the way of fundraising.. ” It was this fire that meant he became a bridge between our supporters and the communities we are helping.
Our Blazing lights fundraising team has spent six weeks calling our regular supporters to connect them to the lockdown in India and our work supporting Dalits and migrant labourers who urgently need support at this time.
