On Christmas day we, the volunteers of DNipCare, were with Mr. Hardev kumar on his pavement dwelling in the street of Mukherjee Nagar with our Palliative mission to relieve his pain and sufferings. Our target, after relieving his pain, was to give him shelter from this near freezing cold wave on his open pavement in the street and we requested support from everybody.
Today, i.e., 29th December 2013, we could finally get him a ceiling over his head and relief from the hostile winter, thanks to the mission of Mrs. Ancy of Shantiniketan Ashram in Chattarpur under Shanti Niketan Social Welfare Society. True to the name of the Ashram, Madam Ancy with her supporters were waiting outside their gate to welcome the new guest we brought in our Palliative Vehicle to their already having 30 inmates fondly referred to as her 30 children.
Seeing a tidy premise, enthusiastic volunteers, a good bed with neat mattresses and blankets Mr. Hardev Kumar was happy with folded hands to everybody for giving him the comfort of a home from the homeless condition, so many new relatives and friends from the forsaken status and above all the warmth of fellow feeling from the chilling winter.
At the end of the day, Suresh Thaliyaril, Arun Unnikrishnan, Ashish Kumar Pandey and Shahi Abdul Sathar, our volunteers were returning home satisfied of providing the possible relief to an elderly abandoned, their own father like human being.
