A helping hand that helped Issaku's mother give him the medical attention he needed
Issaku is the only son of Raju and Aruna. Raju works as a daily wage laborer, and Aruna is a homemaker. Issaku's father soon abandoned them. With no place to go, Issaku and his mother began living with their grandmother.
Issaku began to fall ill regularly. Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's outreach workers identified Issaku during one of his hospital visits. He had fever and skin infection.
Priyadarshini Seva Mandali enrolled him in the medical assistance program. They took him to the doctor for a complete assessment. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed as HIV positive.
The doctor prescribed him medication, but his mother could not afford the treatment. Priyadarshini Seva Mandali assisted Issaku's mother with help for doctor's fee and medicines. They also helped her with travel expenses for Issaku and herself to visit the hospital regularly.
Issaku also receives a monthly ration bundle from Priyadarshini Seva Mandali to get the required nutrition. The nutrition helps him build strength to withstand the intense HIV treatment.
With regular medicines and nutritious food, his health condition has improved a lot.
Now Issaku is healthy enough to carry on his regular activities like a child. His mother is pleased to see him function as a normal child.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Priyadarshini Seva Mandali runs a program to provide underprivileged orphaned HIV positive children with the required medication as prescribed by the government hospitals and helps them through recovery.
Donations to this program will contribute to a fund that will cover the cost of doctor fee, medicines, and travel expenses for the child and the guardian to the hospital.
Most of the children supported by this program are orphaned and are cared for by their grandparents or other guardians.
Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's outreach workers identify the children who need support from the government hospitals where they come for their CD4 test every month. Alternatively, they are also referred to by other nonprofits.
The outreach workers check the hospital records and prepare a list of extremely poor children. They then reach out to the guardians and invite them to Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's office. The children are then enrolled in the program. As a part of the program, PSM provides them with nutritious food. Priyadarshini Seva Mandali also refunds the travel expenses to and from the organization.
A ration bundle adequate to cover all nutritional requirements is also handed over to the child's guardian.
The children continue to receive help every month. Additionally, new children get enrolled in the program as and when they pay their first visit to the hospital.
When you donate to this program, you help children affected with HIV get access to medical help that they need to help them through their recovery.

We have been taking up support programs on several HIV/AIDS children providing them medical support... right from regular medical check-up to providing prescribed medications on a timely basis. Under this program, we have nearly 30 children getting benefitted in this quarter. Still few more children are added and are also getting medical attention. Besides medical treatment, we also provide basic necessities like quality nutritious food, tidy clothes, and a roof over them. We provide them all the comforts and bare luxuries and giving them all the attention that normal children deserve. This way, we instil confidence in them that they are healthy like any normal child and that their disease is curable. For the next quarter too, we plan to increase the number of HIV/AIDS children giving them all the necessary attention medically, morally and physically
Story from the field
J Kalyan is an orphan. His mother was a victim of HIV/AIDS and died during his childhood. His father left his family and left somewhere and he has no contacts with his family members. Left with no one to take care of him he was orphaned and abandoned. Taking pity on his plight, his grandmother who was in her 70s herself and unable to earn her own square meal took compassion on the child and took him into her custody. For some time, she nursed, tended and supported him. But sadly, as the child used to fall sick often, sometimes severely, it was too much for this grandmother to bear all the medical expenses on him, as she herself was struggling to feed herself. When we heard the story of this child Kalyan, we contacted the grand old lady and after convincing who we are, she gave the child to us to be taken care of. That's how Kalyan has come to live with us. When he came to us, he was so weak and had several health problems. We provided him excellent medical care and attention over a period. We have also provided him good food, clothes and a roof over his head and gave him all the comforts that any normal child could deserve. Today, he is very healthy and enjoying his childhood to the fullest under our Wings of Love.
