Dandekar Aji finds her second home in the Mahilashram!

Dandekar Aji, as she is lovingly called, was 68 when her husband passed away. She was uneducated and had depended on her husband. They lived on a very low income and yet, she managed to raise three children, two sons and a daughter

When her husband passed away, her daughter was already married. Her elder son took over the familial responsibilities. Unfortunately, he met with a fatal accident.

Her daughter had to take care of her in-laws. She couldn't afford to take care of Dandekar Aji as they were already living in a limited income. Her younger son and daughter-in-law were not supportive. Her daughter-in-law often beat her and starved her.

When she was living in this abject misery, she met a doctor. The doctor was one of the committee members of Shraddhanand Mahilashram old age home. She advised Aji to approach the home for shelter.

She is now 90 years old and has been living in the Shraddhanand Mahilashram old age home for the last 22 years. She has developed age-related complications and is now a heart patient. She has had one heart attack. The old-age home takes care of her medication and care.
