Around 200 children are receiving ART treatment at MGVS health centre. These children are located in nearby 100 villages’ distance of 70km radius. Due to this, visit to ART centre has become a difficult task for the guardians or grandparents to take the children for ART treatment. Also sometimes due to the limitations of ART Clinic timings they have to spend on overnight stay. Irregularity makes adherence to ART and subsequently resistance to treatment will predictably complicate the issues.
It is for these children MGVS have started 7,000 sq feet building construction for 50 HIV+ve orphan children shelter home cum community health center in 1.5 acre area land at Karanjgaon Tal. Vaijapur Dist. Aurangabad, Maharashtra ( on Mumbai – Nagpur Highway) Residential care and support, two-time food, education facility will available in this center, primary health care service available for rural community, this center will be start by Feb. 2013,
Due acute power shortage in the area, MGVS is planning to install solar powered lights in the shelter home. Your donation of Rs. 10,000/- will be used to purchase and install one set of solar powered light.
