Out total expenses add up to roughly Rs.16 lacs per month. We spend Rs. 6 lakhs on fodder, Rs. 5 lakhs on hay, Rs. 5 lakhs on wages and towards medicines, ambulance, office maintenance, electricity and misc. expenses.
We have no government assistance or permanent source of income. Our funding is only through contributions from kind hearted donors, animal lovers and philanthropists. The cost of feed, medicines and wages of the labourers have skyrocketed and we are finding extremely difficult to manage on all fronts.There was as a serious financial crunch in June 2016 when some cows were even on their deathbeds. Frantic messages through Whatsapp and other social media brought us money to settle our pending bills to tide over the crisis temporarily.
We thank our volunteers and regular donors who go out of the way to help and strengthen the hands of Dr Sadhana Rao who is doing a great service to the Gomathas even at the age of 71, with her own ailments , and living permanently at the cattle shed along with her cows.
We need more donors,especially regular monthly donors to manage our mounting bills so that we can do service to the Gomathas on your behalf.
