One of IWCSS sustainable and signature project of this term is the RPS Shelter Home. This home gives temporary shelter to women and children who have left their homes due to abuse and neglect. The Home Manager, Shoba Aiyar is a qualified counsellor and provides sufficient support and counselling and help the individual/family to decide on their next move.  It is thus a safe haven.

 

We have supported them in the past in enhancing their water supply, repairing their bathroom, installing CCTV, sponsoring a new refrigerator, providing necessary nutrient supplements to two pregnant mothers, groceries etc.

 

However, the culmination of our support is to build a high periphery wall, secure gates, windows and door grills. This was essential to give the residents the much needed security and privacy in this halfway home.

 

The Home wanted to recognise our support and presence and a plaque was mounted.  The unveiling ceremony of this plaque took place on 19 December 2020 and was unveiled by President Indira. This was followed by tea for all.

 

Looking back, we share a great gratification and pride in supporting this well deserving project. Lovely way to end the memorable year of 2020.
