Thank you very much for all the support you have extended to the children in the homes run by HOPE foundation.
Anita was 3 yrs., old diagnosed with HIV, when she first stepped into Arias Home of HOPE in 2003. By then, she had lost her mother to HIV/AIDS & her father was battling with HIV/AIDS. Being sick, he couldn't care and provide for her any more.
At Arias home, Anita, grew up to be a young caring and loving girl. She never held herself back in loving other kids who had lost their parents and were equally battling with HIV like her. She always wore a beautiful big smile however Destiny had other plans for her and on 18th Sept 2018, she passed away after developing complications due to HIV/AIDS. Her passing away has left a vacuum that can never be filled as she stayed in the home for 15+ long years and was an integral part of the home.
Your support has always encouraged us and helped us to care for children like Anita for 15+ years providing them safe and loving environment. Presently we give care for 65 children in three orphanages.
We thank each and every one of you for the support rendered to HOPE foundation in caring and nurturing these children who are going through difficulties of being orphan, sick and needy.
Jeevitha, a very bubbly girl with full of high spirit, monitor of her class, ever happy and smiling and securing “A” grade in most of her subjects. She was not the same before joining Arias Home. Her life was filled with challenges of not getting enough food to eat, clothes to wear, sleepless nights because of water gushing inside the hut during rains and biggest of all protecting self from abuse.
Jeevitha acquired HIV from her mother who was infected by her father. Her father died when she was just a year old. She has an elder sister. She loves her mother very much and had a dream of making her mother proud by studying hard; but her challenges did not allow her to do so. She stopped going to school and secluded herself from everything and everyone.
When she came to the home in Sep 2017, she looked depressed and didn’t speak to anyone.
But after 11 months’ of her stay in Arias Home she says, “My life is totally transformed after coming to this home. I get good food every day, nice clothes to wear, my mind is free and relaxed and I am able to concentrate on my studies. Arias Home has rekindled my hope and I am confident that my family will feel proud of me. In this home, I have learnt to love my life.
Thanks for giving me an opportunity to love and live my life without any tension”.
In November’17 a report on Jeevitha was uploaded on the GG when she had just become a member of Arias Home of HOPE. Thanks to all of you for your generous support which has helped HOPE in transforming one life at a time.
Life is good when you have a family to bank upon, to fulfill all your wishes, to be loved, to be cared for but for the children of Divya Orphanage, Trichy it is different. All the 35 boys staying in Divya orphanage, come from a very difficult background. 8 of them are completely orphaned and leading a dreaded life. They were picked up from the streets and brought to the home. Fathers' of 27 children have either abandoned them for reasons unknown or is assumed a few of them have died. The children here are between the age of 8 yrs to 15 yrs and crave for love. 6 boys for the first time have joined the school after coming to the orphanage.
In the orphanage, efforts are being made to fulfil all the needs that a child in an ideal family would enjoy. No stone is felt unturned to ensure that they get to eat good nutritious food, sent to a good school, provided with good clothing etc. They are taken on recreational trips every quarter to keep their spirit lively and happy.
None can replace mother and father and their love, but with your support, we ensure that they are loved and cared for and do our best to provide what they need in their lives. All thanks to your support in "Bringing HOPE changing Lives” of these 35 children of Divya Orphanage, Trichy.
