Is happiness the emotion behind your smile?
By Jolly Geevarghese - Senior Program Manager
Is happiness the emotion behind your smile? This is not (name changed), a 4 year old, was found wandering on the street and the police brought her to Asharan through the Child welfare committee. Her father has been traced but is found to be living on the street and is an alcoholic. The whereabouts of her mother are unknown as of now. Geeta is finding her comfort with the other children who are in a similar situation. She easily mingled with the other children. Her street training has given her some confidence. All of them have a long way to go in dealing with their trauma. Right now Geeta’s best buddy is Ancy, who came last week after losing her mother, father and a younger brother at once. Though she smiles, the emotion behind is never of happiness. It is of fear, uncertainty and complete loss of control. Her looks and quietness says a lot.
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. The children here are at the age group of new born to 7 years presently. In 2018, Asharan cared for 74 kids. In February and March this year itself, we cared for 35 children incuding 14 infants.
- We need regular monetary support to take care of the needs of the children and to hire extra care givers to look after the babies.
We are extremely grateful to all those who have extended your support. Many of you have come forward to give things like diapers, baby food, baby clothes, and monetary support to hire extra hands during the crisis. You have touched many lives in special ways. May you be blessed in increasing measures!
