Wednesday, 28th March, was an exciting day for shuktara because a new boy arrived. His name is Aakash, which means "sky". Since he was a baby Aakash has lived in a nursing home, surrounded by staff who have clearly given him lots of attention and love. You can see in the photos below how emotional it was for the women who had cared for Aakash all his life to say goodbye.
Unfortunately the nursing home is closing and although Aakash has been loved, he has not really been around young people his own age. As Phoebe Brown (who is currently filming a documentary about shuktara) says - "It is time for Aakash to be in a real home."
We welcome Aakash to his new home at shuktara!
