VICTIM OF INDIFFERENCE - Request for immediate intervention to save the lives of Destitute Children
A team consisting of Shri Venkatesh from MVF, Shri Yahoan and Shri Basha from CRAF (NGO) led by Advocate Ashok Agarwal visited a Slum situated near Vegetable and Flower Markets at Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh) on the early morning of 20th June 2012 and discovered these two severally disabled children in a hut. Their parents are stated to have died long ago and they are looked after by sister-in-law. Most probably their brother and sister-in-law go for begging. Apparently these children are in critical condition and need immediate medical attention and rehabilitation by the State. Though these facts has been brought to the notice of Father Koshi, Chairperson, CWC, Krishana District in which Vijayawada falls, on 21st June 2012 and he has assured immediate action. However, till date no effective action has been taken and these two critically ill disabled children are still lying in the Hut.
