Care Home for Mentally Challenged Children was started in 1997 with an aim of taking care of mentally challenged children who are abandoned sometimes by society and sometimes by their own parents. Today, the children of this care home celebrated Rakshabandhan like you and I did.
Rajendra Kumar Sharma who has been working here for the last three years says, “When I came here we had 30 children but now we have 39 children. Some children have even returned back to their families”.
We have to keep in mind that such children are very difficult to handle as they are very moody. These children need love, care and attention. It’s a tragedy that they are living here when they should be living with their family members. We have to understand the behaviour and attitude of society towards these children which unfortunately is very hostile.
Although the foundation pays Mr. Sharma very less but it doesn’t matter to him. For him work is worship and he says that the satisfaction which he gets after serving these children is inexpressible.
