Also immunization shots and building infrastructure, as well as general care for the children.
Every year, on the great festival of Mahashivratri, the ashram opens its doors to approximately one thousand children who take a day off from school to receive a delicious cooked meal and celebrate this holy day. Living in the most challenging and limited environments, these children come dressed in their best – their school uniforms and maybe a pair of shoes, if they have them.
