Healing steps for Varshan

Dear friends,

Greetings from Sukriti Social Foundation.

Thank you for your continued support.


Much like the parents of five-year-old Varshan, we are thrilled to share a heartwarming story. This story reached its happy conclusion with your generous support.


If you saw Varshan effortlessly overtaking his friends in our neighbourhood, you wouldn't believe that his mother spent four years in anguish over his clubfoot, wondering if he'd ever walk.


Varshan was born with clubfoot, and this led him to Egmore Children's Hospital for treatment. Following surgery, his parents came to us for the orthotic clubfoot shoes he needed to wear. We ensured Varshan wore the shoes consistently and provided ongoing encouragement through video calls.


To his mother's delight, the doctor revealed during a recent check-up that Varshan no longer required orthotic clubfoot shoes. "The past four years of travelling from our village to the city have been challenging," she reflects. "We took on extra jobs, working tirelessly to afford this journey. But I have faith in his healing and am immensely grateful to God. Sukriti Foundation stood by us during these trying times, and we're incredibly thankful." Bharathi continues, "Today, I'm filled with joy and relief. My anxieties have vanished because of the support we've embraced. My life has changed."

This change is evident just by observing Varshan.

During this reporting period, we've supported 183

Once again, thank you for your unwavering trust in us. It's only through friends like you that we can continue to assist many more children.

Gratefully,
Sowmya
