We are very fortunate to have something in our life. We have got everything, but there are some from whom life has always taken and gave nothing. Some efforts are necessary to make their life better and give them some of the part which we have achieved. In order to do this, we, a group of Solveda employees, visited an NGO named DEEPASHRAM (a Missionary of Charity Mother Teresa Home), which is home for physically and mentally challenged children.
DEEPASHRAM was established on July 3, 1994 and shelters 38 handicapped boys and men ranging from 8-26 years. What started as a small community in Sector-4 Gurgaon, is now registered with the Missionary Brothers Of Charity, and as a society with the Haryana government. While some boys came from the Missionaries of Charity, others were brought in by the police, medical superintendents of hospitals, neighbors and NGOs. The children here are taught to develop skills to make them less dependent. The centre works to rehabilitate and reintegrate those children with mild mental retardation, through education and training. Many of the boys lack the percentage of mobility that allows autonomy; thus, they require constant care.
Solveda team reached the orphanage at around 9:30AM. The volunteers met the caretaker of Deepashram & interacted with the disabled and mentally challenged children. Team spent over an hour in Deepashram & understood their requirements. Deepashram depends on contributions from benefactors for the daily upkeep of the centre & medical needs of the boys which include check-ups, neurological screenings, psychological assessments, and physiotherapy. Based on their current requirement, SOLVEDA donated two coolers to them. Though it is not enough, but treat it as a first step of SOLVEDA towards betterment of society.
Let’s continue our efforts towards the betterment of the society, for which we are engaging with other NGOs as well. We will update you our future course of action soon.
Thank You for reading it out.
Expecting more volunteers as part of our team
