About the Campaign
Age: 13 years
DOB: 15 – 5 – 2060
Single Father: Naina Badur Baniya
With 6 beautiful daughters and 1 son, Naina went through the tragic experience of losing his beloved wife, who died suddenly while in the fields. While mourning this tragic lose, Naina then found out the painful truth that he is suffering from kidney problems. Not wanting his children to know the truth of his health, he suffers alone with the knowledge that if he were to pass away, his children would become street children.
Two of Naina’s daughters are far removed, with their concern being only on their husband’s family (as is the tradition in Nepal of marriage meaning the women leave their house and live with that of the husband). With another daughter living with her uncle, Naina cares alone for his two daughters Sarita and Kamala and only son. Naina fears for his children, and shared his story with us. Naina’s only wish is that if he passes away, he knows that his children will have a place to be safe and can still gain an education; Naina is desperate not to have his children end up on the streets in poverty. This is when we decided to help.
