Hardships and Troubles in the life of Satya!!

Satya all smiling
Satya all smiling

A few days back Satyamoorthy’s was not how he looks today a happy child with a bright smile and  zeal to live.

Satyamoorthy and his brother got orphaned at the age of 6 when they hardly knew how to live  life. Their Aunty took the responsibility of them but within no time due to financial constraints felt the boys a burden and sold one boy to another family and left Satyamoorthy with GYPSY group that lived on the road side.  

This gypsy group used him for doing house hold chores and sometimes even  send him for begging. On day  his aunty saw him begging and was very unhappy and took him back with her. Then she admitted him in school. She would also ask him to do household chores. He was very unhappy and fled from the house. He took shelter in the bus stops or sometimes even slept on the road side.

Childline  NGO working for street children identified him and through CWC admitted him in Divya Home at Trichy.

Here he found many friends to play with, good food, good care and lots of love. He is very happy to stay here. He is enrolled in the school and now studying in class 4. He loves to go to school and his dream is to become a Police Officer. He is very a very active boy of the home and loves drawing and painting.

The miracle

                                       

Report - December 2016

Asharan has cared for 50 children in the year 2016 with all your help. Among them, 8 children were adopted into loving families and  15 children were restored to their biological families.

Good news!

 Now we have all the money needed, to purchase a new van for the children!!! We will be able to purchase it as soon as the entire amount hits the bank.

A big thank you to all our friends namely Ajay & Sonali, Anne & Elle Hendricks, Amit Mulani, 'Guadalupe Mercado', Jessica, & Sharon Hendricks, for contributing towards the cost of the Van.

I am not forgetting all the others who have contributed this quarter towards different needs like speech & OT, medical,   teachers’ salary, food, milk & round the clock care. Without you, it would have been impossible to run the orphanage.  Thank you. May your reward be from God.

The miracle!

Three years old Shivani was found wandering. When the police brought her to Asharan, she could not tell anything about her family. At Asharan, she enjoyed the company of other children especially of child Sahil who is about her age. She also enjoyed the attention in the school, the nursery rhymes, colors, and stories. A few weeks passed and the police brought two more boys to Asharan, 6 years old Sunny and  7 years old Vinay. We were surprised when both the boys ran to Shivani, hugged her and said ‘, “sister, were you here all the time? We were searching for you everywhere”. It is a miracle that these three siblings came together, even though they were picked up from different places at different times. Their parents are no more. They were under the care of their elder sister who presently is in the police custody accused of some crime. The boys were surviving by picking rags and selling it. They were discouraged as they thought they had lost their small sister Shivani and that they had no place of shelter. They were on the verge of ending their lives due to sadness when the police met them.

This is what Vinay said after a couple of days at Asharan. “I will not go away from this place until I grow big and finish my studies”. Now, Vinay is not only a big brother to Sunny and Shivani but also has become the big bro for Sahil, Nisha, and all the little children at Asharan.

Diet cures more than doctors

Children watering the vegetable garden
Children watering the vegetable garden

Organic fruits and vegetables have acquired a lot of attention and importance in the past few years. We too realize the importance of organic food; hence we came up with a plan of setting up a vegetable garden. After a period of one year we have beautiful vegetable garden with variety of vegetables and fruits growing in the same.

Positive signs were visible on the health of the children because of the intake of vegetables and fruits from their very own garden,. They have gained weight and the sickness rate has dropped down. The CD4 count has increased and stable for the past few months.

Because of the vegetable garden children are getting to eat fresh vegetables and fruits, they are also getting an opportunity to work in the garden which makes them stay close to the nature. They have become more caring and want to water and maintain the garden. They like to spend time plucking the ready to harvest vegetables and fruits and this brings immense joy on their faces. They have also developed a liking for those vegetables that they would not eat earlier.

As mentioned in the title, "Diet cures more than Doctor"stands very true in the case of our children who are infected with HIV/AIDS. Proper balanced diet of organic vegetables, fruits and non-vegetarian food has helped immensely to the children and they are more happy and healthy.
