80 years old
Ramjanennessa walks curved bent down posture with the
help of a cane. She lost her husband, Dengu Miah 11 years ago. She does not have any son.
After her husband’s death she lives with her only daughter & son-in-law,
where she is an extra burden. Morning sunshine does not bring any light
for her. Waking up in the morning, the main thought for her for the day,
will she be able to have any food for today. She was seeing dark all around
her, living in such a miserable condition of poverty, where every day she is
uncertain about her next meal of the day. After her husband’s death she
could not get any help from the government even to have the food for the day.
When Ramjanennessa was feeling hopeless to
survive, Touching Souls International came to her side. She came to the
office of Touching Souls International, village Banail,
