On 28th June 2017 we welcomed a new member Suprova Mishra who was referred to us by the locals in Thakurpukur. Suprova is a widow and had lost her 21 years old son in a accident. The locals looked after her for several years but on a permanent basis there was none to take her responsibility as she is getting old and feeble. Her medical treatment has started and she is settled in Bhalobasha.
Musical Entertainment : on 24th March 2017 The Classical Guitar Group entertained all with songs and music in Bhalobasha. The children also danced while the artists sang and it was so enjoyable. Thanks to Veda Agarwal for her lovely thought to arrange such an entertaining programme for members, children and staff. It made their day!
Manju Banerjee and Sikha Roy were admitted at the Vidyasagar State General Hospital but sadly no one ever came to discharge and take them home. For years they were kept isolated in a 'septic ward' with no visitors or care. With our intervention both Sikha and Manju are now residents of Bhalobasha since 31st March 2017.
