The water problem still exists within our premises which affect the well-being of the brain affected children left under our care. The borewells dug around our yard by the neighbours greatly affecting our Water sources leaving us helplessly. Water is pumped from external source into our sump for our daily use.

The photos attached will vouch for the truth. We are restricted to use minimum quantity of water to keep the campus & wash area clean. For washing purposes, we need another source for our daily requirements. 

If aid/grant continually coming in, it would enhance the health & hygiene of the vulnerable children. More specially during these pandemic times plenty of water to sanitize the place & the dwellings. 

Requesting earnestly for monetary help & assistance.

It is since more than a year, we have been battling with the shortage of both drinking & water for washing purposes. Due to the scarcity of funds allocated to this project, we are unable to solve this problem. We do not get funds from well-wishers also hampers our plan for furtherance. Helplessly we buy water from outside somehow to rough out the daily utility. Our Mentally Challenged young adults cooperate with us carrying water from one end to the other. Monsoon rains is another problem which is beyond our control & management. We are very sorry that we could advance addressing the water problem at this unit of ours.

We are still battling with water crisis problem, which adversely affecting the child care service among the underprivileged children specially the Mentally Challenged with us. The problem exists & prevails unsolved due to the insufficiency of the funds meant for this project. The response from the public viewers is unsatisfactory. There is no potential donor agency coming forward to lift us up from this periless condition. As a result we buy water from outside to manage our daily situation some how with a great difficulty with financial crunch. One load of water costs INR 700, which drains our resources very badly. The photographs attached would illustrate & reveal our present status in this regard.

Children find difficult to shift water from one end to another end.

We buy water mainly for bathing purposes & kitchen utilities.

The cost of one load of water is gradually soaring up due to the high demand from outside at various places.

Water situation remains the same - buying water from outside & from our neighboring Girls Home Unit.

Special Adults make use of the water facility at Girls Home for washing of clothes purpose.

Received some rains & hence the harvested rain water is being used to an extent.

Praying for more rains.

We are also trying to get help from external sources, if possible.

Because of the low inflow of funds we could not move remarkably further. Instead we manage the crisis on a day to day basis by buying water from outside, drawing water from our Girls Home & delivering to the Boys Home once a week when there is adequate water facility available.

Boys taken to Girls campus under supervision for washing their clothes twice a week.

Receiving intermittent rains helps us to a certain extent, yet the problem is not fully solved.

Expecting underground water level increase due to the rains & a steady income from the donors.

The joint efforts of the grown-up boys make this possible for survival at this stage.

The cooperation of the girls home is helpful to manage the crisis.
