Amiya regains her lost self-respect
Amiya Mondal is 72 years old. She lived in Khordanahala, a small village in West Bengal. Amiya always had a very hard life. She has one son. Even with the minimum family income they had, she managed to raise her son and get him married.
As days passed by, she lost her husband to age-related illnesses.
She became frail and unable to work anymore. She was fully dependent on her son. However, her son who was not earning much began to consider her as a burden. Her son and daughter-in-law couldnaEUR(tm)t even provide her with two meals a day.
She was mistreated by her son and his family every day. She was humiliated and depressed but didnaEUR(tm)t know what to do. She resigned herself to a fate of hunger, and illness.
It was then that the team from Bani Mandir noticed her and enrolled her in the /Sponsor-a Grand ParentaEUR(tm) program.
As a member of the program, Amiya received food, clothing and health care support.
Amiya, being a mother decided to share everything she received from Bani Mandir with her son and his family. Seeing this, her son realized his mistake and was sorry for the way he treated his mother. He promised to take better care of her in the future
Amina also received counseling at Bani Mandir to help her cope with her depression. She was motivated to live and assured that she would be taken care of.
Amiya now lives with self-respect. The help of monthly rations and medical help she receives does not make her feel like a burden to her family.
Today, she enjoys a normal dignified life that she deserves at her age.
