Thank You Andy !
An inclusive Community Self Help group, formed by LSS, consisting of leprosy patients, differently abled people and community representatives has secured , through the ability of its members to show their commitment to saving regularly, a grant of Rs.20000/- from the Dept. of Woman and Child Welfare, MCGM.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” A break in routine at school always makes way for deeper learning.

The children of the balwadis engrossed in their Numbers 1-10 Test. It was amusing to note that they wrote 11-20 to show that they knew the rest.
An urgent appeal to you who are reading this post :
TB kills !! A Drug Resistant patient spreads Drug Resistant TB !!
This is an urgent appeal to you to help TB patients build their immunity to fight the disease and complete treatment successfully thus preventing the spread of the disease to their own family members and the community around them.
Each TB patient requires supplementary nutrition, more so for those with a low BMI .
A tin of protein powder is ideal as it is easy to administer and can be taken by the patient itself.
The cost for each TB patient is Rs.636/- per month for a period of 6 months. This is essential to help the patient to withstand the side effects and complete treatment.
LSS would be grateful if you could cover the cost of at least one patient. If you do YOU will be saving the lives of 10 others.
Ashwini Kamble – Ashwini is an orphan. She stays with her sister. After the death of their parents, Ashwini used to do domestic work and earn Rs. 1500.00 pm. At the same time she continued he FY BCom through a correspondence course. As the salary of a domestic was insufficient to fund her studies she moved on to work in a garment factory for Rs.2500/- pm. However this too was not enough so LSS was on the look out for someone who could give her a job with a decent salay. Sachin Patil came to our rescue and procured a job for Ashwini at D mart. She now earns 7000 Rs.P.M.
Ashwini and her sister are now able to live simple but self sufficient lives with basic amenities like electricity which they could not afford before.
Arjun Sunriwal earned a meagre sum of Rs.3000/- pm mending shoes. He is the only earning member of a family of 5 and could not meet the expenses of health and education of his family. With the help of Sachin Patil, Arjun is now a security guard at D Mart too, earning Rs.8000/- pm.
