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),
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.
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
