New Specialized Medical Care Unit

All thanks to you! A Specialized Medical Care Unit now provides Timely Care to Severely Disabled,Mentally Challenged Children.

Yes, we'd like to personally thank you for your great generosity which has helped us set up a specialized medical care unit for our severely disabled, mentally challenged children. As one of our benefactors, you've shared in our trials and now it's time to share in our joy.

As you are aware, our 105 children have been through so much... looking at them today, one would hardly imagine the horrors they've been though. When these children were brought to us, most of them arrived in desperate conditions, having endured rejection, abuse,and unimaginable hardships. Several had serious medical conditions that required immediate attention. At our home, we nurtured, fed, clothed, comforted, and medically treated them to the best of our abilities.

It's a known fact that the life expectancy of such children is much shorter than that of the general population. And those who are immobile tend to have an even shorter life expectancy than those who are mobile. Several of these children still require tube feeding or assistance which being fed; these are the ones that suffer the most and are more vulnerable during times of epidemic or disease. And due to the nature of their disability, these children tend to fall ill easily and require constant medical supervision; they need to be taken to the hospital for regular checkups,follow-ups, and treatment regimes. And sometimes,despite our very best efforts, we weren't able to get them to a hospital on time.

But here's where you stepped in to make a radical change!

Through your generous contributions, we've now opened up a specialized medical care unit on our campus itself,which is saving precious lives and contributing to the overall improvement in health of these destitute children.

Although these children may be written-off by society, nevertheless, they are precious human beings needing constant attention and care. Your sponsorship has made a huge, life-changing impact for which, the children and myself, want to say a big,"Thank You".

Annual Sports and Cultural day for the children's at Sri Arunodayam

Dear friends,

Greetings to you from the special children of  Sri Arunodayam

I hope you are doing well. All the children are keeping well. Thank you so much for your continuous encouragement and support to Sri Arunodayam. We are happy to share with you the celebration of annual sports and cultural day conducted at Sri Arunodayam

The Sports and Annual Day celebrations at Sri Arunodayam, held on the 26th February 2015, was indeed a delightful and exciting experience for the children. They began the day with much anticipation. Mr. Jaganathan - an IAS Officer and the President of the Rotary Club of Chennai - was our Chief Guest,volunteers and students from Good Shepherd School came to cheer the children along.        

 The sporting events were conducted at our Madanankuppam Unit, from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and included games such as balloon bursting (for the smaller children), lemon and spoon race (where children would try to reach the finish line holding a lemon within a spoon without dropping it), potato gathering, and musical chairs. The children were completely absorbed and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  

After this, they began preparing for the Annual Day celebration. Many of the children exhibited their talents by singing and dancing, and our Chief Guest and well-wishers were very appreciative and entertained. The children were given prizes in the form of cups and medals as a way of encouraging and appreciating their efforts. And then, flushed with excitement and much joy, the children finally retired for the day after a healthy and nutritious meal.
