Sunita Rai, 40, lives in Chalna at Dacope upazila in Khulna. She suffers due to a spinal cord ailment for the last 16 years, which stemmed from an injection that was pushed into her during her C-section delivery. Her husband abandoned her after finding her in that state, and has not been in contact with her since. She lives with her mother. Before the coronavirus pandemic, she used to work as a tailor and embroider, whenever she felt fit. But that came to a halt soon amid the outbreak, as she was laid off.
