Kuntabala finds meaning in her life after 27 years!
Kunta Bala Chakraborty lived alone and had a hard life. She lost her husband at a very young age and worked hard for 27 years to make ends meet and struggled all her life.
She had no children. As she got older, she lost her strength to carry on working. With no family and no support, she was struggling even for a decent meal a day. She lost all hope and saw no reason in living.
It was then that the team from Sevashram rescued her and brought her to the ashram.
She was provided with shelter and food. She was counseled and motivated to live life in a more meaningful way.
With a safe shelter, nutritious food, love, and care, she gained her strength. She then wanted to start working and be engaged in helping other people.
Today, Kunta Bala has become an energetic mother of the Sevashram. She helps in the activities of Sevashram Girls Home.
Kuntabala is now leading a life of joyful involvement of children.
