Dinesh kumar's father is working on daily wage basis and his mother is a housewife. Dinesh kumar was a normal child and was able to walk and play till the age of nine. Suddenly he was stuck with his movement ability. He was diagnosed with muscle atrophy by the neurologist consultant Dr. Aravind, MD. Even after continuous treatment of physiotherapy for four years, there was no improvement. Our organization started treating him in holistic alternative treatment and he has slightly improved. This treatment costs around Rs. 5000 and he needs treatment continuously for 6 months. The total treatment costs Rs. 150000. He needs support to continue this treatment. So Please support Dinesh to be like a Normal Child. Thank you.

Grameen evam Samajik Vikas Sanstha has been working on Women empowerment, Youth skills, Child Rights and unorganized & migrant labourers betterment. GSVS is working for the silicosis-affected labourers by providing legal education to the labourers, creating awareness on safe environment at the workplace. The organization also supports the dependants of the silicosis victim by availing government facilities connects them to rehabilitation centers and helps them get some compensation to sustain their lives. Silicosis is an incurable lung disease, which may occur at the Silicosis prone workplace such as stone crushers & Mines. Despite all efforts being made to prevent & eradicate it, Silicosis still affects millions of workers in hazardous occupations and causes many deaths. Currently 2000 labourers have been affected from silicosis in Ajmer and Bhilwara districts of Rajasthan itself, of which 400 labourers have been died. Labourers start working in this disease prone areas at the very early age (15-16 years) and sadly, at the age of 35-40, they acquire silicosis disease. More shockingly, dependants of the silicosis victim have been forced to move to the same workplace to earn their livelihood after the demise of the head of the family. It is a vicious circle in itself. The organization aims to break this vicious circle by imparting trainings to the dependants of the disease, in goat rearing and make them self sufficient. The organization wants to help the silicosis victim families through the Goat-based Livelihood programme and they can have average monthly income of Rs 4000/- that is sufficient for their livelihood .This will help children and youth to change the livelihood trend where they get affected with Silicosis. This is a challenging issue and we need finances to support for goat-based livelihood programme to 500 Silicosis affected families.
