Angel from Street

Posted on Updated on

image

In this story ( true story) our hero is one of our Angel named NEPALI ,a 7 yrs old girl child from a NOMAD family. She lives wish her parents and 5 other siblings on the street near Sealdah Station. These children are almost regular participant of our project . She has got 3 brothers and 3 sisters. Her younger sister is Kajol who is 5 years old and her another sister is Ganesh who is 3 years old. Her elder brothers are Ram prasad, Naba, Ramjeet who are 17, 13 and 10 years old respectively.

image

lt was like any other day when we arrive at our Street Children Welfare Project based at Sealdah .we were totally shocked by an incident which turned our face pale and emaciated.

image

NEPALI was crying because of severe pain and her palm completely burnt from all angles!! Her family came running to us with tears. Nepali was writhing in pain and couldn’t stop crying.
Actually the real incident was that – she was playing with her little sister carrying a drawing book (given by us) and by mistake the notebook fell inside a burning brick furnace(used for cooking). Nepali while trying to take the notebook out from the furnace fataly bruised her left palm and her flesh was totally flushed out from her skin.Her hair burnt completly.

image

It was certainly a huge catastrophe which befell her and her family!! Nepali’s parents took her to the nearest hospital but the doctors refused to treat her since she was belonging from the family of ‘nomads’ and giving an excuse that the treatment is too expensive and not possible for the family to bear!! Certainly we didn’t wasted any precious time and soon began to treat the little angel by our love and affection if not by MONEY!!

image

We instantly took the picture and sent to our associated physician for advice but it all sounds for an really expensive treatment which was not at all possible for the family ,we had to take our call ,one of our team member got First AID ,Nursing training and depending  on our limited resourses we started our tireless but dedicated journey in nursing the palm. It took us more than 3 weeks to bring the palm back into its original state.Every day we strived tirelessly in curing the palm. It wasn’t a easy task but we know that “WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY!!” Each day we washed her burnt area and applied some antiseptic ointments and finally bandaged that area. After 3 weeks time her palm was truly back into its original state and we were the most happiest people on the planet. Sometimes love,affection and dedication do the miracles!

1.Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)‚Ä®

Location :sealdah and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages ¬†to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family most number are children below 12 years including both girls and boys. Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies. ¬† We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment. ¬†Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! From the first day children from the street around its’ project area became the SMILE family members! Activities started with ¬†washing,cleaning,cleaning cloth,cutting hair and nails and then basic education( pre-elementary ) / vocational training/art /craft /drama /language training /music training /other activities done for the children on regular basis. Once these activities over then lunch being distributed among the children at the project followed by different amusing games with the volunteers !! ThInternational volunteers can have a scope to creat game plan or vocational training activities for these angels. These projects are going the several places with the help of local community helper . We often welcome international workcamp volunteers and medium to long term volunteers to run these projects !! Volunteer can have a great fun to stay with the local host and learn local food habits/ culture/dress /cultural exchange programme on regular basis to learn each other as a part of the single SMILE family!! Volunteers would have great fun time altogether!

This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment. ¬†Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! From the first day children from the street around its’ project area became the SMILE family members! Activities started with ¬†washing,cleaning,cleaning cloth,cutting hair and nails and then basic education( pre-elementary ) / vocational training/art /craft /drama /language training /music training /other activities done for the children on regular basis. Once these activities over then lunch being distributed among the children at the project followed by different amusing games with the volunteers !! The International volunteers can have a scope to create game plan or vocational training activities for these angels. These projects are going the several places with the help of local community helper . We often welcome international workcamp volunteers and medium to long term volunteers to run these projects !! Volunteer can have a great fun to stay with the local host and learn local food habits/ culture/dress /cultural exchange programme on regular basis to learn each other as a part of the single SMILE family!! Volunteers would have great fun time altogether!

1a. Project :- Street Grown up Girls and Women welfare/empowerment  project ( TE,Art & Craft Training, Sex education etc.)

Location :Kolkata and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages  to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family Grownup girls and married women ( mother of the children ) always have to face the problem in their daily life.Often these families bring their girl children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities, even some girls been forcibly thrown  to the dark life of prostitution.  So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available to help and support these unfortunate girls and mothers of the street children  in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time.
