About the organization

Cheshire Homes, a unique institution, has its genesis in the aftermath of the human tragedy caused by World War II. Group Captain Leonard Cheshire, a highly decorated air force pilot, was an observer at the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki in 1946 after which he decided to devote his life to set up Homes for the disabled and other victims of the war. The first Homes he set up outside UK were in India starting with Bombay in 1956 which was followed by a series of Homes across India. Today there are 23 Cheshire Homes in India. Each of these homes are independent, managed by its own management board , serving the cause of the disabled, the terminally ill and the elderly. They are linked to the Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD), an international organization, through the Cheshire Homes India-National Council. Cheshire Homes have been expanding their activities to serve a larger number of people with disability through Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) program, such as Access to Health, Livelihood Training and Employment, Inclusive Education and Advocacy to sensitise the Government and the public at large.

Faiza is a 10 year old girl has locomotor disability due to congenital condition of her spine known as ‘Spinal Dysraphism with Paraplagia’, which renders incapable of using her lower limbs. Her father Aziz is a school bus driver, while mother Nasima is a housewife. Faiza was identified in the year 2011 by the project and at that time she was not able to move or control her body movements and posture. She was at home all the while, since parents did not know what to do with her and could not afford any treatment at the time. Post the assessment, Faiza immediately started to receive physiotherapy at the outreach centre at Behrambaug. During the course of intervention, Faiza was simultaneously supported by the project for getting a Disability certificate, public transport travel concessions (Road and Rail) and several other clinical/medical examinations. Her physical condition started to improve remarkably; she was able to sit for longer durations with correct posture. Today she can stand with support, and uses wheelchair to move about. Despite family’s poor economic condition her parents were very supportive of her, and enrolled her into a school nearby. However, due to disability and poor health, she used to eb irregular in attendance. She was very shy and would not interact with others. Hence, the project further got her to be part of the Children’s club, which was a turning point. She has gradually become confident and very social. Her improved physical condition with therapy at the centre encouraged the project staff to get her enrolled her into another school that it had been working with on inclusive education. Today, Faiza goes to Mariam Public English High School, a mainstream school in Behrambaug area, and is in 4th class. She has settled well and receives the needed support from her teachers and other children. She is very regular and can comfortably sit through several hours in the classroom. Faiza was also supported for tuition fees for the initial period of six months.
