Challenge

An unseen humanity survives among the abandoned mining town of Kolar Gold Fields with a society full of children with profound disabilities. Most of them suffer from Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Epilepsy, Autism and need lifelong care . These children have a single parent , mostly mother. As the child is severely disabled the mother cannot leave the child alone , in order to go to work. Hence, most of the time , the children are starving or at most get only one meager meal a day.

Solution

Initially , we had identified about 20 families in similar such circumstances , and we started providing these children with monthly food provisions, which included rice, wheat , oil , dal , sugar and other basic daily need items . The average monthly cost for providing provisions to each child amounts to USD 100 per month or $1200 per year.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help sustain the lives of these poor disabled and neglected children and provide them with nutritious meals preventing malnutrition and sickness . Will bring some amount of happiness through proper nourishment, to these otherwise poor and unhappy families. Will bring some hope to the lives of these children and their families in despair.
