Members of Paradise, a Non Government Organization (NGO), visited Sahyog Village in Khunti on Sunday and distributed clothes, durables, nutritional supplements, edibles and sports items worth more than Rs.1 lakh to over 100 children living in the village.
Sahyog village in Khunti is a shelter home run by Manpreet Singh Pardesi who is based out of New Delhi. Singh runs six children homes, six specialized adoption agencies, on ChildLine centre and many other community development programmes.
Situated in Hutar block, around 45 Kilometers south of Ranchi, the shelter home is operational since 2008 and provides care and shelter to more than 100 children, including infants. Singh also runs rehabilitation centres for destitute women, an old age home and a legal aid centre.
With all his initiatives, Singh is taking care of nearly 300 children and 125 women and elderly. Till date, he has rehabilitated more than 750 children.
“We are committed in supporting the noble cause of helping children in need of care and protection.
We thank everyone who contributed in this initiative,” said Rushikesh Rajput, president of Paradise.
Founded by 14 like-minded couples in May 2019, Paradise works in India for providing relief to the poor. Paradise relies on donations made through online platforms for serving the society. On Sunday, the list of items they distributed among children included cricket bats, bed sheets, undergarments, dairy products and chess boards.
The NGO has been involved in a lot of philanthropic activities lately. In July, members of the NGO visited Association of Social and Human Awareness (ASHA), a children home in the outskirts of Ranchi and distributed items worth Rs.1,13,000 among the inmates there.
They also organized a health camp, in which the children were provided free health check up and given medicines.
In the month of June, members of Paradise distributed free school uniforms, sports equipment and fruits to at least 40 children in Sarvangin Gram Vikas Sanstha. Besides, the NGO has also visited several orphanages and helped children there earlier this year.
