Hisar, Sept 22 (UNI) Impoverished widow Anju's appeal for people to adopt her two daughters to spare them the fate of spending life in an orphanage, has evoked sympathetic response from many quarters, including non resident Indians.
Hisar SP of Hisar Sri Kant Jadhav today met the family of 34-year-old Anju, and assured full help to her for upbringing her daughters Simran (9) and Ashima (5).
Former DGP P.C.Wadhwa has announced to give rupees 1000 per month for the education of girls.
Australian NRI Anjali rang up and offered financial help to the family urging them to keep the girls with the mother. Another NRI woman Gurmeet Kaur, NRI, also called up Anju offering to meet the expenditure for upbringing the girls.
Mr Jadhav said, ''We shall open a bank account for girls where people willing to help the family could deposit money. I am also trying for a better job for Anju''.
Anju, whose husband Anil Makkar had committed suicide three years ago, was forced to live with her aged and ailing parents who have no source of income.
Anju, a graduate, was teaching in a private school at a salary of 1800 per month. Finding herself in the grip of sheer poverty, she released an advertisement to give her both daughters to anyone who would adopt them.
