Shantiniketan, a home for physically & mentally retarded children located at Ballepalle(V), Khammam(Dt), Telangana, is currently looking after the welfare of 85+ children. Our team visited Shantiniketan on May 24, 2014. On our first sight we were deeply convinced by their way of treating such children. Our hearts felt heavy after looking at the plight of the children there. We noticed that there is a dire need for clothes as the children needed “Change of Clothes” for every 2 hours to maintain health and hygiene.
In the event Vastram, on 13th July 2014, Subandha donated 85 Shorts, 85 T shirts, 85 Towels, Painting books, Stationery, toys & fruits to those children. Our volunteers also spent a good amount of time with those children by engaging children in activities like playing, drawing, & storytelling. We wanted to make it a practice & donate clothes or any other necessities to those children in regular intervals.
