Once unable to stand, walk, talk or move his arms or hands, Krishna is now able to join in games, is learning how to read and write, is independent in dressing and feeding himself, and manages four-word sentences.
The Nestling Trust (TNT) found Krishna two weeks before a devastating earthquake destroyed the home where he lived with his Grandfather. To ensure his safety his grandfather would tie him to the verandah while he made pots, to earn money for food. He had no hope of any medical intervention to help his development.
With Krishna's Grandfather's permission, TNT was able to have Krishna assessed and he was welcomed into Serc school. TNT is most grateful to all the staff at SERC for all they have done to help Krishna, their care, unwavering patience, and skills have enabled Krishna to make amazing strides towards independence, as well as a happy childhood. Krishna's Grandfather is able to visit.
TNT with SITARA, our partner NGO, has established a Health Post in Marbu, the remote village where Krishna was born, as well as Health Posts in four other remote villages in Nepal, altogether serving approximately 28,000 people who would otherwise have no medical facility.
