Help sick and destitute adults live with dignity


A steep fall and severe injuries could not defeat Madhav.

Madhav is a 45-year-old plumber from Gurgaon. He barely earned enough money to get through a day. His life shattered when he fell off the first floor of a building where he was working.

He had multiple fractures and severe injuries when he was taken to the closest hospital. They soon discovered that there was no one to look after him and he had no money for the medical care he needed.

**The NGO Sapna learnt of his case and decided to step in. They covered the surgeries, medicines and care that he needed. He was discharged after a few months with rods in his leg. He could not move or take care of himself.

Sapna continued to look after Madhav, moving him to Andamam, their Home for Sick and Destitute.The social workers helped him gradually heal, build strength and get back to a routine. He worked hard to get back on his feet. After months of intensive physiotherapy, his legs began to respond and he could slowly get on his feet with the aid of a walker.

He began to help around Sapna with his plumbing skills. Over time, he was put in charge of the store at Sapna with a modest monthly salary. Today he holds his dignity and works hard. Life at Sapna has helped him get his life back on track and dream again.

Sapna's update

Anandam provides shelter to those unfortunate ones who do not have a home or have been abandoned by their families. Some are even in a comatose state. The Home was established on 5th of at Vijay Mandir in Alwar was conceived to provide care and shelter to those unidentified patients admitted and then discharged from the Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre and Safdarjung Hospital who are in need of long term care and support and cannot be accommodated in any of the rehabilitation homes in and around Delhi. Anandam has three centers in Vijay Mandir & Dadikar, Alwar and in Noida (UP). Currently Anandam provides care and shelter to 65 patients out of which 55 are male & 10 are female including 10 coma patients).

Plan for Financial Year 2018-19

  • Increase number of patients in Anandam to 100.
  • Construction of Block B of Anandam, A 200 bedded home at Dadikar.

Ramesh Kumar's story Ramesh kumar, in-charge for Anandam is exceptional when it comes to his commitment and service to the patients. His association with service to the poor, sick and destitute has an interesting story. He hails from Bihar and has worked for the Coke bottling plant in Patna. One fine day he decided to get his eyes checked, for it was troubling him for some time. Adventurous as he was, he boarded a train and came to Delhi and sought treatment in AIIMS nd subsequently landed in Safdarjung Hospital. He got himself recommended for a stay in Safdarjung Dharmashala. What he saw there changed him for good. The patients were suffering immensely - had no food, no medicine and for some no one to take care of them. One such patient was Lalbabu, who could not move and take care of even his basic needs. Ramesh started taking care of him.

He prolonged his treatment, kept helping others and his compassion rose much above his own needs. He met Sudhir Pratap Singh, the founder of SAPNA who too used to visit Safdarjung Dharmashala every week and provide some basic food materials to patients there. He organized such people in a unique bond now known as NGO SAPNA.

Soon Jagee Ramji, a patient from Trauma Centre, who had nowhere to go, was brought to Alwar and put up in the Vijay Mandir Palace premises. When the second patient came in Jan 2007, Ramesh volunteered to move to Alwar and take care of them. One room in the outhouse, a double storied complex with over 65 rooms that had almost turned into a jungle, was set up for the patients and Ramesh used to live there all alone taking care of patients 24X7. He picked up nursing care skills on the job. Often people would scare him with ghost stories. Yet this fearless man full of compassion set up Anandam from the scratch.

Numbers began to grow and now Anandam has three branches at Vijay Mandir, Dadikar and at Noida. During last seven years Sapna started taking coma patients in its home. Care of such patients is a round the clock job that Ramesh so happily performs. He picks up local talents, trains them on the job and uses them to the best of their capabilities.

A lot has changed during the years and Anandam has grown by leaps and bounds and Ramesh remains its pivotal pillar as its in-charge. Such dedicated workers are a rarity and Sapna thanks him for his great service. "
