Your donation went towards part of the costs of cleft lip surgery for Asavari from Hirkani Wadi.
When Asavari was born, her parents Mahesh and Karuna were shattered to see their first-born with a cleft lip. They were unaware of what a cleft lip was and couldn't help her. Asavari had difficulties eating, meaning she received less nutrients and began suffering from malnutrition.
The cost of surgery would always send her parents back home from hospitals - until they found out about our medical camp and free surgeries. Now Asavari has a beautiful new smile and is beginning to get her health back.
Your kind contribution towards this fundraiser helped raise ₹10,788 of the ₹50,000 target amount. The amount was raised to help Baale Mane construct a sick room for 54 girls.
Currently, Baale Mane are finalizing the last stages of the design and tender and hope to start construction within a month.The existing dormitory will be converted into a sick room when the girls get a new dormitory.
The funds raised will be used for renovations and purchases for the new sick room.
