Let me tell you a story.
A few years ago, an orphanage near Padhar was closed. The orphanage housed about twenty children, but due to some stricter government regulations, it was deemed unsuitable. The staff therefore needed to place those children in facilities that would care for them. Some were moved to government facilities, others to boarding schools, but these two little ones didn’t have a place to go. Both Savitree and Sangita are hearing impaired and Savitree also has some physical ailments, so they need specialized care. So, the School and Rehabilitation Centre for the Blind took them in and now are their home.
They are new to our Sponsorship program this year, and we will be helping to subsidize Savitree’s medical care and both girls’ schooling.
