Provide care and education to an intellectually challenged child

Impact

Shubani can now lead a good life despite all her struggles.

Shubhani is the youngest member at Raphael’s Early Intervention Centre. She is a two-year-old who suffers from a developmental delay and cerebral palsy.

When she arrived at Raphael she had a squint in her left eye. She also did not have proper control of her movements.

After several physiotherapy sessions, Shubhani’s state has improved a great deal. Her squint has lessened and her hand-eye coordination has increased. She is also able to hold her head up and sit for 5 minutes without support.

Subhani's mother is filled with joy at her daughter's progress. She now feels optimistic about the future of her child. With financial help, poor children like Shubhani can get the therapy that gives them a shot at life.

You could gift a young child like Shubhani the treatment that they cannot afford. Your help could restore meaning to the life of a family who feel hopeless right now. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

About The NGO

Raphael
Raphael Logo
Raphael

Situated in Dehradun, Raphael was founded by renowned humanists, Lord Leonard Cheshire, and his wife Baroness Sue Ryder in April 1959. In the more than 50 years of its existence, Raphael has offered its services in varied areas for the relief of suffering.

They have worked with people suffering from Leprosy, Tuberculosis, and Intellectual impairment, touching more than 22,000 lives in the process. Leprosy cured patients and intellectually challenged residents are also encouraged to work in their Rehabilitative Workshop, for which they are remunerated accordingly. Apart from running a school and shelter home for their students, they also have a Community based rehabilitation project, as part of which they work with children in government schools.

Once the students in their residential home grow up, they are encouraged to live in a home environment under the supervision of a house parent, while they attend classes at the day center. This helps prepare them for independent living in the community.
