Megha Mathur in her motives to help Vlada shared the story first on Facebook and people have been coming out for help. Megha’s post on Facebook reads:
While walking by in Cannaught Place today I ran into a pretty lady seated on the footpath outside Burger King with pictures spread out for display amidst a placard which read:
“BUY PHOTO FOR ANY PRICE (DONATION)
NEED MONEY TO GO BACK HOME (RUSSIA)”
On enquiring about the circumstances, I was informed that this Russian tourist rather a travel freak – Vlada, enticed to visit India, was robbed off her belongings at #KheerGanga (Kullu).
After which, she approached the embassy for help to be able to get back home, but was in vain. And since then she has buckled down, selling most of her pictures, hence managing to procure an amount of Rs 13,000/-.
She is optimistic about getting help before her visa expires (August 11, 2016).I’d like to request people to not just share this post but try to escalate the issue to their best possible level to fetch our guest some aid. I’ve put her number down here with utter faith in people to reach out to her ONLY IF THEY CAN SERIOUSLY HELP HER.
