PROTECT 20 DISABLED CHILDREN IN KGF FROM STARVING

Protect 20 disabled children in KGF from starving

Project #33104 from Balajothi Centre for the Disabled Trust

Funding goal : $20,000 / Funds raised to date : $4702.35

Project Report due on : Feb 26, 2021 / Report sent on : Jan 25, 2021

 

Summary

This project is created to gather funds required to provide food provisions and necessities to currently identified 20 severely disabled and neglected children from very poor families, in the defunct mining town of Kolar Gold Fields (KGF), Karnataka, India.

Challenge

An unseen humanity survives among the abandoned mining town of Kolar Gold Fields with a society full of children with profound disabilities. Most of them suffer from Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Epilepsy, Autism and need lifelong care . These children have a single parent, mostly mother. As the child is severely disabled the mother cannot leave the child alone, in order to go to work. Hence, most of the time , the children are starving or at most get one meager meal a day.

Solution

We have identified 20 families in similar such circumstances , and we started providing these children with monthly food provisions, which included rice, wheat , oil , dhal , sugar and other basic daily need items .

Ramya (name changed) is one among the 20 children who are being supported by Balajothi under our CBR (community based rehabilitation) program.  She is provided with good and regular food and clothing and is growing to be a healthy child.  In addition she is also provided therapy and training by caregivers who visit her home regularly.

Balajothi thanks YOU, DONOR, for your generous donation of $4702.35 to date.  This amount is being utilized to support 19 other children.  They are safe and free from the COVID-19 pandemic as every care is being taken to protect them from the corona virus scourge.  YOU, DONOR, are the reason for this life changing support.  We thank you for your continued support !!

Balajothi thanks GlobalGiving for their support in raising funds for this noble cause, without which we would not have been able to do this service to the poor disabled community. Thank you GlobalGiving !!

(Project #36030 from Balajothi Centre for the Disabled Trust)

Funding goal : $5,000 / Funds raised to date : $1457.60

Report due on : Feb 13, 2021 / Report sent on : Jan 24, 2021

 

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. It is a "developmental disorder". Autism spectrum disorder is a serious condition related to brain development that impairs the ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism, as the whole world knows, is one of the most dreaded disabilities and lasts lifelong.

Krishna (name changed) is a child severely affected with Autism. He was diagnosed with ASD at two years of age and has been attending therapy sessions and rehab programs since then. He has shown remarkable progress and the caregiver entrusted with his rehabilitation has this to say, ‘Krishna is a wonderful child and blessed with remarkable talents which I have not seen in other children with autism.’  He is non verbal but has learnt to communicate his needs through action.

Balajothi thanks YOU, DONOR, for your generous funds of $1457.60 to date which is of immense help in his rehabilitation process.  He needs life-long support and help round the clock in carrying out all bodily functions, including feeding. 

Balajothi thanks GlobalGiving for their guidance through webinars and seminars in managing children with autism.  GlobalGiving has been able to bring a large measure of comfort by providing much needed information on this widespread dreaded disability.  Thank you GlobalGiving and god bless you for this support !!

Help Cerebral Palsy affected children

HELP CEREBRAL PALSY AFFECTED CHILDREN

(Project #39831 by Balajothi Centre for the Disabled Trust)

Funding target $5000 / funds raised to date $280.15

Due date of report : Feb 24, 2021 / Report sent on Jan 24, 2021

The Challenge

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a non-progressive disorder that causes physical disability in development, mainly in the areas of body movement and control. It is caused by damage to the motor control centers of the developing brain and can occur during pregnancy, childbirth or after birth. Children affected by CP have problems in perception, communication, cognition and epilepsy. It also leads to musculoskeletal problems resulting in difficulties in movement and balancing.

Your support

Balajothi  is grateful to YOU,  DONOR, for your concern for the welfare of underprivileged special children.  We thank you for your sacrificial giving of $285.15 against the funding goal set at $5000.  These funds are being utilized to provide therapy and rehabilitation to Ramu (name changed) who is a severely affected CP child (75 %).  As he is unable to walk our caregivers visit him regularly at his residence and work with him.  We are also planning to provide him with a wheel chair in order to take him out of his home for getting fresh air and to spend time in natural surroundings.

 

Balajothi thanks GlobalGiving for their support and guidance to this cause and for raising funds round the globe, even during this COVID-19 pandemic.  Thank you GlobalGiving !!
