Laxmi Kumari got married at 22 years. For the first couple of months, her in-laws treated her well, but the birth of her daughter changed everything. She was subjected to incessant domestic violence. Within the next couple of months, she was diagnosed with a severe medical condition and was sent back to her parents’ house. It was like going out of the frying pan into the fire. A single mother with no financial means, Laxmi’s life came to a near standstill. At this time, she accidentally met Manju Dhobi, a Community Motivator of the Manzil team.
