This quarter, we bring you news from the Community Care Centre of HOPE, Tirunelveli.
The community Care Centre is a home that started in 2006 and since then it has helped over 200+ children. It’s a one gender home and currently accommodates 16 boys. The home also supports 6 girls who stay out of the home premises separately, for as per the government rules, a child cannot continue to stay in an orphanage once he/she has attained the age of 18 years.
All the 6 girls that we provide support and care are orphans, who lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. These girls stay as a family but the centre in charge is completely responsible for their well being and continues to mentor and care for their immediate medical, psychological, spiritual needs etc. Out of the 6 girls, one is working while other 5 are studying in Higher Secondary School/College.
Abhisha aged 22, one amongst the 6 girls had joined the home at the age of 14 after having lost both of her parents. She too is HIV +ve. About two years back, in 2016 her Aunt took her to their home, but were unable to give proper care to her. Abisha became very sick and her CD4 count came down rapidly. Through one of our staff we came to know her condition and that she desired to come back to CCC. On readmission in CCC we came to know that she was affected with Chest Cancer and Tuberculosis. Back in CCC, she has undergone two major operations. She has recovered from it and studying in 2nd year (BA) . Her CD4 count has increased and her health has also improved. We give all thanks to you for providing us the timely help which has brought Abhisha back to life
Also, thanks to one and all for continued support to HOPE foundation in providing care and support to the children who are 18 years and above. Your support has helped them find their space in this world and also to stand on their own feet.
Jeevitha, 13-year-old girl is from Villipuram village in Tamil Nadu. In 2009 she was detected with HIV/AIDS and her life completely changed. Her uncle cheated on them. She was going through mental trauma and hence cocooned herself from the environment. Her mother who is supposed to be her biggest support was unable to do much. Slowly Jeevita lost the interest in studies and stopped going to school. Fear constantly lingered on Jeevita’s mind. Her mother the only bread winner of the family could not fulfill the emotional needs of Jeevita. Doctors of Villipuram Government hospital were aware of their situation and referred them to Arias Home.
Jeevita and her mother visited the home, saw for themselves the services provided at home, felt satisfied with the care the children here get and then admitted her in the HOME. Life was not good until she came in the abode of Arias Home.
Today, Jeevitha is overcoming her struggles and has rejoined VIII Std. she has started opening up and likes to chat with the Home manager.
Our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for supporting the home to give hope to Jeevita and all the other children who are beneficiaries of the home.

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.
