Safalta HIV Shikshya Sadan (SSS) Revisited

Three months ago, when we celebrated our second birthday  we found 10 HIV infected children being raised by Safalta HIV Shikshya Sadan (SSS), now the number of children living there have grown to 15 and soon some more will be added. Their home has now shifted to a nearby newly constructed building, which is not yet completed (as in picture below). They have rented this new home at NRs 20,000 per month.

Dr. Sameer Mani Dixit when visited SSS during the last mission promised to do whatever he could to uplift childrens' lifestyle and as per his thoughts he promised to pay the yearly salary of teachers teaching those children. There are three full timer teachers at SSS whose monthly collective salaries come up to NRs 10,000 per month, yearly salary summing to NRs 120,000.00

Sameer along with his wife Dr. Lonim Prasai Dixit provided a cheque of NRs 30,000.00 to us as the first installment which we handed over to the teachers today. Children along with the teachers there were so much pleased to know the news that they kept on thanking all of us and especially Mr and Mrs Dixit until we left.

Children at SSS

Children there are so disciplined and well mannered that anyone visiting them for the first time remains amazed. Children have got  far better lives, they have grown healthier now. Dutta Ram Rai, a volunteer teacher explained that some of the newcomers need some medical treatments which he has been providing . One of the children among 15, who is seriously ill has been undergoing medication in Teaching Hospital, he said. 

Happy faces 

TFCNepal duly thanks Mr. and Mrs. Dixit.  

God bless all. 

Happy Tweeting !! 

*Remaining installments will be handed over to SSS upon later times and pictures will be updated on this very post.
