BANGALORE: A charity bash is being organised on Saturday to raise funds towards medical care, rehabilitation and infrastructure improvements at the Home for Mentally-Challenged Boys in Bangalore.

U&I is a volunteer-driven organisation in Bangalore that has been working in the Home for more than two years. They have been focusing on improving care, hygiene and therapy at the Home, so that the boys can begin to sense that they are valued and loved. Volunteers from U&I have come together to give the boys what all human beings rightfully deserve - a sense of dignity and a better life.

Jessica Weill, one of the organisers, said, “The children at the Home lack so much and are in need of a variety of basics services and daily amenities, which we take for granted. As an expat, there is a limit to what I can offer to these amazing children. While my time, and the limited supplies that I can bring them is not enough to make a difference, knowing that U&I will be around long after I have left India, inspires me to help.”

A U&I volunteer, Cintia Esmeralda, said, “These children deserve the best care and facilities and I want to help give them that. Just as I love my children and want to give them everything, I would love for these boys to have a better life.”
