About the Fundraiser



Hello, I am Vignesh, a co-founder of The News Minute, a news website. Recently we did a report on an old couple based out of Kochi in Kerala who had a very interesting story to tell. They are in their 60's and run a Tea Shop in Kochi. They used to take a loan from the bank to travel to a foreign destination and then work the next 3 years to repay it. In the same way, they have travelled to 16 countries till now. For more on this story please read-


Vijayan and Mohanna have one dream destination left- they want to travel to the USA. However, due to their age and considering their only source of income is from the small tea shop they run in Kerala, banks are unwilling to grant them the loan. We, The News Minute team, have set up this crowd fund to try and help them fulfill their dream of visiting the United States of America. 


The funds will directly be given to Vijayan and Mohanna. TheNewsMinute will ensure that the funds reach the couple as soon as we reach our goal, or whatever amount we are able to collect. The funds are primarily for flight tickets, accommodation, food, visa charges and for visiting a few places within the US. You can follow our Facebook page for regular updates
