Heading: Infusing new life into the children
Raj Kumar Pun spends most of his salary of an administrative staff on Baby Life Home and also recently sold his house to lighten the financial burden. Uma Gurung too sold her cosmetic shop to help out. Though there are helpful hands extended every now and then in the form of a sack of rice or clothes for the children, the only regular outside help is the monthly milk deliveries that a kind soul is paying for.
Heading: Deeper than blood
At first appereance, the student sitting in the sparse classroom in kritipur look much same as those in other schools -- they are welll dsciplined and exceedingly polite. But there is a difference: all these children carry the HIV virus. Safalta HIV shikshya Sadan was started two years ago, all because of 10-years Old Sharadha chand (For confidentiality, these children's names have been changed on this site) from Bhaitadi. Both of her parents passed away as a result of HIV, and Sharadha - also - infected - had been abandoned thereafter. It was when they'd seen an article published on the little girl that Uma Gurung, who owned a cosmetic wholesale shop, andRaj Kumar, a teacher, decided to take Sharadha in. Soon after, more children with HIV were taken into the house they were building in Kritipur.
