CHILD Trust, Chennai, TN.
CHILD is a registered Charitable Trust, working for children of HIV +ve parents. Since the parents of these children are in the midst of darkness of their own life and expecting the end of their life, they are not in a position bring up their children. Adding to this, most of them are very poor.
Mr.Senthil is a AIDS control volunteer, who has started this Trust, two years back. These children are tested for HIV -ve. Thank God, they are safe. Senthil is spending most of his simple income for this noble cause. He is not yet married.
This home runs in a very old house at Kolathur, Chennai. 11 Childrens are taken care here. Mostly they are in the age group of 1.5 to 7 years only. Trust is paying Rs. 2500/- as rent for the house. Apart from this the major expenses is salary for two male care takers. All children are attending school near by. A retired old gentle man teaches these children during evening hours at free of cost. A few good hearted people pay for the provisions and vegetables. Apart from all these monetary aids, the most encouraging thing is good moral support for the children from youngsters. They use to visit this home on week end and spend a day with these children, playing with them.
Currently their immediate requirements are school fee payment for two children and some stationeries. Mr. Senthil expects only this from India Sudar. Apart from this, we have observed that house is very very old and is not safe place for children to live (that too rent is too costly for this house). If any one can help them to get a good rented house, it would be a great help for the children. This is an important safety measure.
