Visited to CHES(Home for HIV affected kids), Chennai

Chennai, TN.

I have visited to CHES(Home for HIV affected kids), Chennai on 05-Apr-2008 to see the organization activity and gather education need. I had discussion with Mr.Shakir (HIV Councilor) to understand home activity.

#1 Home Address : Anantha Illam, CHES(Community Health Education Society), 1,Kumaran Colony(Near K.R.Vijaya Garden), Sridevi Kuppam Main Road, Valasaravakkam, Chennai-600 087, TN.

#2 At 1994, this home was started by Dr.P.Manorama M.D.,DCH.,DM(Gastro) based on two HIV affected kids & now this home having 45 HIV+ kids(upto age of 15). This home providing completed shelter/education/medical for kids, not for old people.

#3 This home receiving orphan kids(HIV affected) from hospitals and government agencies from across Tamil Nadu. After completion of HIV test, based on the results they are deciding the stay. HIV+ve kids will be staying in this home & -Ve kids will be given to Government Child Welfare Society/GULID.

#4 Mr.Muthu Pandian and his wife Chitra working as home manager for this home. Other then this they have 2 full time nurse, 1 – doctor ( daily 4 to 6 pm), 1 – councilor, 5 – people for maintenance, 2 – cook.

#5 They are running there own school within the Orphanage for upto 4th standard kids, after that they are sending the students to Cauvery School, Saligramam and Kodambakkam Gov School (10 students) for education.

#6 Most of the time this students are alone in this home and watching TV. I spend some time with these kids and they are very much happy to interact with new people. Good part is, non of this kids won’t know they are affected by HIV+ve. Even councilor and admin people not passing this information to external people and schools. Its absolutely confidential information, so I am not took any photos within this home. Bad part is people not ready to spend there time or touch this kids because of HIV.

#7 At 3.00 PM, myself and R.Niranjana(Volunteer – Udhavum Ullangal Orkut Community) visited to CHES office and discussed with Dr.P.Manorama M.D.,DCH.,DM(Gastro), Chitra & Muthu Pandi. Other then this Dr.P.Manorama working as child welfare society member. She is very much interested to create awareness and support HIV affected students.

#8 CHES Office: Ches, 198, Rangarajapuram Main Road, Kodambakkam, Chennai-600 024, Phone-91-44-24726655/24731283/52133249 Email: , , web:

#9 CHES organization having there own social workers(employee) to support Sexual worker kids also. Already they are supporting 175 students per year. It means they are paying school fees, providing uniform, etc

#10 What India Sduar can do now ?
10.1 we can deploy permanent teacher for this home school, because already they have only one teacher for entire schools/home.
10.2 We can provide education material like note books, uniform, bag, shoes, etc for home students and out side AIDS affected students.
10.3 We can conduct very small cultural program for this home for external people interaction. Kids will be very happy. Even Our members can take small session from councilor before executing this cultural program in this home.

    Malaria, together with HIV/AIDS and TB, is one of the major public health challenges undermining development in the poorest countries in the world. Many children who survive an episode of severe malaria may suffer from learning impairments or brain damage.
    I think its high time we all individually or collectively Stand Up and Speak Out for our rights

    This will help all you people on this blog to do something along with the United Nations in your locality.
