Pappu and the team just got back to Kolkata from Purulia district where they have been distributing blankets to the families that they are supporting.
They will return in a few weeks when the orthopaedic shoes and chairs that are currently being made to order are ready. They will also sort out hearing tests for the Deaf children and young people in the village who have never had any medical help.
Even though the shuktara family are now grown up, healthy and well supported, they still need for us not to forget about them – our support has dwindled dramatically in the last years since the pandemic and yet the work being done on the ground has grown enormously.
Please donate if you can – your support not only helps shuktara in Kolkata but also our Outreach programme providing assistance to the children and young people in Purulia district.
If you donate now a generous donor has agreed to double any donation given to Shuktara up to the total £30,000 cost to run the Outreach programme for 3 years.
