Beautiful baby with a big challenge

A beautiful baby, born with a big challenge and was under Asharan’s care since 28th May. During this time of crisis, no child care homes were medically prepared to receive a child like this, including Asharan. The tragedy is that there wasn’t an equipped hospital to admit this child without COVID scare. So it was a question of chance. The baby was born with Meningo Myelocele at her lumbar region, a severe form of spino - bifida. The spine was not closed normally at her lower back  but was just inside a big sac of a thin membrane that was ruptured. She also developed a breathing issue and was back in a central government Hospital far from Asharan because of their neurology department. Patient care givers to sit with the baby were hard to get and expensive to get because of the COVID 19 scare in most of the hospitals. The CWC, Child line and Asharan worked together to find a solution. Unfortunately, the baby passed away inspite of the intensive hospital care. on 12th June.

During this difficult time, few of you have offered us extra help. Few of you did not stop helping. We are extremely grateful to you and pray that you lack nothing.

The special need kids are improving steadily by the continued care by the staff here and online classes. The older kids are home schooled now and they are doing well.

The renovation work is in progress at a slow pace to avoid exposure.

 Wish list

Asharan requires more well-wishers to provide regular monetary support to care for the orphaned and lost children.

-         Sponsor a child

-         Sponsor an attendant for  hospitalized kids

-         Sponsor a nurse

-         Sponsor PPE kit

Asharan Orphanage, HOPE foundation, Delhi was started in 1997 to give care and protection to young children who have no one else in their lives. Asharan has cared for about 712 children since 1997. The children here are at the age group of 6 months to 7 years presently. In 2019, Asharan cared for 59 kids.  10 orphan children found families through adoption in  2019 and 25 lost children were restored back to their biological families.

Adding value even in the Challenging times

It’s been 90+ days since the schools have been closed due to COVID-19 pandemic.

This unexpected closure of schools posed a big question of how to engage 80+ semi orphan, orphan & children affected and infected with HIV/AIDS of the 3 homes run/supported by HOPE foundation productively and how to make them adapt to this new change.

We are pleased to present a small report on how these children are being kept engaged in a meaningful way so that they get accustomed to this new way of living.

To begin with, all children were given extensive awareness on COVID-19, how and from where this virus has come and what are the precautions they need to take to be safe.

Based on the guidelines given, children of all the 3 homes were made to wear masks and wash their hands at regular intervals or as and when required.

Balanced and nutritious food is given to the children to maintain their health standard and CD4 count as we are unable to take them for the monthly health check-up. Care is also taken to give them additional nutritional supplements so that their immune system remains strong.

During the day, different activities are being conducted to improve the skills of the children in spoken English, drawing, basic math’s and grammar with the help of videos, work sheets, quizzes etc.

Besides this, most of the children have taken up gardening and have planted greens, small shrubs and take care of it by regularly watering, cleaning and pruning them.

They spend time doing creative work from waste material which has ignited innovation and creative skills in the children.

On weekends they organize cultural programs to bring out their hidden talents of the children as well as to keep themselves entertained.  

All the 3 homes follow a timetable given by Child Welfare Committee and also keep them posted daily.

 

In conclusion, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have generously donated to HOPE foundation to continuously provide the love and care for all the 80+ children for 24*7 with the support of 24+ staff in all these three homes. We hope this patronage continues even as we continue to care for all the children in need.

 

 

Thank You!!

scientific inventions by HOPE school children

Nothing is impossible if you have the will and this proverb stands so true in the case of          D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s of class IX of HOPE foundation Matriculation High School. They were selected to participate in NATIONAL CHILDREN'S SCIENCE CONGRESS, a flagship program of NCSTC NETWORK. It is also a platform to celebrate practical science and an inclusive platform where young scientists use their scientific skills to address real problems. D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s presented a research paper on “Traditional Knowledge Systems (TKS)” and did a research for 61 days on “How copper water helps to cure many diseases”. Out of 140 research papers presented on the day of the summit, the jury selected 73 research papers and D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s was one amongst them.  It was a big achievement for them and to the school as students from the best schools in the city participated in this event.

D. Anuangel & M. Magesh have proved that no matter what background they come from, it will not hamper them from achieving their goal of becoming a Scientist one day.
