RDT is providing assistance for livelihoods for widows of farmers who lost their lives due to mental agony caused by the burdens of agriculture
B. Aruna and her husband Sudhakar lived in N.Venkatampalli near Kundurpi in Anantapur district. Sadly, Sudhakar was burdened with many agricultural debts. He went through great mental stress and died with heart disease 3 years ago. Aruna is left with a 3 years old son. She had no other option but to sell to 2 acres out of their land of 4 acres. She was very depressed. At that time RDT’s ecology sector came to her rescue. They consoled her and gave her a tailoring machine and some cloth. Now she is earning some money and is about to send her son to school. She says that the same neighborhood which looked down on her, is now eating her with respect.
