        This is a really touching story, found it on the BBC website:

        Bablu Jatav's wife, Shanti, died on 20 September, soon after giving birth to their first child in Rajasthan state. Mr Jatav, 38, says since there is no-one else to look after the baby, he takes her to work with him every day. He is carrying his month-old daughter in a cloth sling around his neck.



        "Shanti died soon after delivering the baby at the hospital. Since there is no-one to look after my daughter, I keep her with me even when I pull my rickshaw," Mr Jatav says. "We had this baby after 15 years of our marriage, my wife was so happy when we were blessed with a daughter, but it is very sad she passed away. I have to pay 500 rupees ($9) a month as house rent and 30 rupees daily to rent the rickshaw."

        Now a local charity has agreed to help Mr Jatav take care of the baby.

          It's just one of many very tough stories. When you think that for some people $10 is a lot of money, it makes you look at life a bit differently.

          ahhh.........that will bring tears to your eyes. To think of the hardship this man has endured to lose his wife and then has the grit to do what it takes to provide for his baby is - well unbelievably  touching. A true testimonial of not giving up and a man who knows what is most important life. This story really got me. Is the charity strictly local or is there online donations too?

          I've looked for ways to donate online but I haven't found any yet. I will let you know if I find something.

          Sadly, there's people in the USA who'd give no thought to dropping the kid off at social services and not even TRYING to raise the child. This IS a man and a true FATHER. God bless him.
