The donations were made following an appeal from Vijayalakshmi made through Mylapore Times.
Economically poor, the duo was finding it difficult to make ends meet, after the lockdown. And the baby had to be protected and fed.
Her appeal posted on June 21 evening brought good news – four people have donated dry rations and essential veggies.
Said Vijayalakshmi this evening, “We had a good meal after a long time today. I made rasam and keerai poriyal. And my baby son got to have extra milk.”
Vijayalakshmi says she has received rice, oil and sugar from the donors. “They also gave vegetables – tomato, potato, onions, keerai and kothavarangai, which is very nutritious for young mothers like me. I also received Cerelac and milk for my child.”
The parents says they are thankful for the help.
Community activist Baskar Seshadri and Mylapore Times were among the donors who provided her essentials.
The young mother says further donations are welcome. People who may want to support Vijayalakshmi may reach her at 9345000682
