Ensuring the health and safety of special children

NJSI staff along with Doctor and two lab technicians went for the medical intervention at Kavre on 26th September, 2018. The intervention was conducted at two different places. Bhagwati School is located at Kharelthok and has 20 special children whereas Kalidevi School is situated at Kunta with 10 special children.

In the program blood samples were collected and regular medical checkup was done for the safety of children. It was difficult to conduct their medical intervention as their cases were slightly severe but they were cooperative throughout the blood withdrawing process.

Caretakers adored the medical intervention for the special needs children and they shared their wish for continuation of such program and not to limit it in just a onetime medical intervention. They also appreciated the way that the doctors made children feel secure throughout the process.

Inauguration of a new spacious residence for special children

Special children of Kalidevi School can now have a better residence after inauguration and handover ceremony of newly built hostel on 25th September. There are altogether 10 special children and the school is situated in Mandendeupur-7, Kunta of Kavre district. NJSI team along with 2 representatives from Caritas Italiana (Sponsor), Deputy Mayor of Mandandeupur Municipality Ms. Nirmala Shahi, local women’s group, students and committee member of school gathered for the program which was short and precise with the introduction and felicitation of the guests followed by official inauguration and handover of the hostel to concerned authority.

The presence of all the students of Kalidevi School made it more special as everyone was so excited to be a part of the ceremony. Despite of the scorching sun, they were carefully listening to speeches and enjoying to the fullest. The hostel is designed for the children who are mentally challenged and their mental status varies heavily as some of them are able to make conversations but some of them are still unaware of themselves. The previous hostel was too congested and was not designed well for sufficient light and fresh air. Now they have separate rooms for boys and girls and also have enough space for dinning, studying and conducting any games or activities.

Their caretaker, Ms. Fulmaya seem very happy during the program and Deputy Mayor also expressed her gratitude towards NJSI and Caritas Italiana for their support.
