Asavari gives us a smile
Fundraiser: Free children from birth defect
by Mission Smile
13 March 2018

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.

Health and hygiene kits for our shelter
Fundraiser: Nappies and nutrition for innocents
by Apne Aap Women's Collective
26 Feb. 2018

We received 15 hygiene kits and 11 health kits with the funds raised. The health kits included steel plates, spoons, oil rice and dal, while the hygiene kits included diapers, soap, shampoo and a towel. 

Here’s what Priyanka, aged 14 had to say: “I am enjoying eating out of these new plates! Since they are sectioned, it’s easier for me to have different items during lunch. I am also a monitor during dinner time and have realised that other children drop less food out of these sectioned plates than earlier circular plates. It feels good to observe this because it means less food is wasted.”
