About the NGO
Delhi Council for Child Welfare started its work to provide care to the displaced, lost or abandoned children in the riots surrounding the Partition of India. It is an NGO that now provides services to the underprivileged children of Delhi and the neighboring regions to promote their health, development, economic and social wellbeing.
The most well-known programme of DCCW is Palna, home for the abandoned, homeless and destitute children. At Palna, infants arrive in a precarious state of health and the best possible medical care is given to them. It is a home to those children whose parents relinquish them or surrendered to them by the Police. DCCW works towards creating awareness on matters of basic health and hygiene, nutrition, pre-natal and post-natal maternal and childcare to the women in rural areas and urban slums. They also conduct programmes aimed at the education of children from underprivileged families.
The Orthopaedic Centre set by DCCW provides a complete range of rehabilitation services to physically disabled children, especially those affected by polio. More than 9,000 surgeries have been performed up to date and 25000 children have been fitted with polio aids. Their mission is to give every child the childhood they deserve.
