Shova overcomes her challenges and is learning to be independent
Shova Kumari was deserted by her parents when she was just a day old because she was mentally challenged. When no one came forward to care for her, the ' Child Welfare Committee' of Gomati district enrolled her in the Abhoy Mission home.
She was assessed and diagnosed with multiple disabilities. As she grew up, Shova remained dependent in all domains of ADL -Activities of daily living.
Activities of daily living (ADL) is a term used in healthcare to refer to people's daily self care activities. Common ADLs include feeding ourselves, bathing, dressing, grooming, cleaning oneself after defecating and leisure.
She also had very poor social skills. She did not respond to any communication directed to her.
With consistent care, nurturing, and training there was remarkable change in her. Slowly she started showing interest in her surroundings and to learn to take care of herself.
She can now eat her meals independently. She has started to speak a few words and small sentences to express herself. This helps her establish communication and relationship with others. She enjoys singing and remembers the tunes of a few songs.
She also involves herself in small chores at the home like watering plants,
Her caregivers are hopeful that with time, she may grow up to one day be independent.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Abhoy Mission runs a safe home that is dedicated to provide adequate care and shelter to orphans with special needs.
Donations to this program cover a part of the cost of a child's stay in the home. The expenses include daily food supplies such as groceries, milk, fruits, meat etc, medical provisions, toiletries as well as the salary of the cook and the attendant.
The children at the home are abandoned by their parents or lost children who are sent by Government child welfare agencies. They are assessed for level for disability at admission so the right kind of care can be provided to them.
If the authorities are successful in locating the parents of the children, they are sent back home. If the parents are untraceable, they continue to stay in the Home.
The children remain in the home till they reach the age of 18 or till they are able to take care of themselves. Most children in the home are in the age group of 6 to 18 years. The home has a capacity to care for 30 children.
When you donate to this program you help an abandoned child with disabilities who would have ended up in the streets with a safe shelter and care.
