Punjab We mostly deal with single mothers, farmer suicide families and other under privileged children with various familial situations.
Mehtab Singh lives with his sister and mother in Amritsar, Punjab. His father has to be away from his family as he works out-of-state in a factory, bringing home about $140 CAD per month to support his family. Mehtab’s mother suffers from thyroid issues and remains ill more often than not. They live in shared quarters, where they have one bedroom to themselves and have a shared kitchen and bathroom. Mehtab loves to visit Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) whenever he can. He hopes to grow up and become an army officer. Mehtab's parents want their children to attend school and get a good education, but they cannot afford to pay 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. In India, health care is a right, not a privilege. When you sponsor a child through SAF INTERNATIONAL, along with covering the child’s tuition fees, we make sure that every member of a child’s immediate family receives the medical treatment they need.
