Shanti Niketan Social Welfare Society (SNWS) offers shelter, care and love to helpless, destitute men who lie helpless and abandoned on the streets of Delhi. Several inmates are mentally challenged, or are old, sick or infirm and have been abandoned as they are a burden on their families. Some are accident victims, left in an unimaginable condition covered with pus filled wounds, with flies and worms eating away at their putrefying flesh.
Ancy Johnson is an extraordinary woman, who has taken on the daunting task of not only rescuing, but also taking over the full responsibility of these hapless souls. She is a single mother with three daughters, devoted to the cause of serving the poor and helpless.
Since 2007, Ancy, single-handedly moves around Delhi rescuing disabled men from the roads and housing and caring for them in a building that she has taken on rent in Fatehpur Beri. For this purpose she founded SNWS, a registered NGO.
Ancy lovingly tends to the inmate's wounds and provides basic medical care; she cooks, cleans and washes their clothes and provides for all their day to day needs. She also takes them to the hospital, arranges for consultations and treatment by doctors and even arranges to handle the legal matters of some hit and run victims.
Ancy lives alone in the building with 33 male inmates, some of whom are violent, due to their mental illness. But her courage and determination keeps her unfazed despite the most trying of circumstances.
Ancy has no formal sponsorship and relies solely on the generosity of the local community who has supported her till date. The building that currently houses Ancy and her inmates is decrepit and in a terrible condition. SNWS has been donated some land but Ancy is unable to raise sufficient funds to complete the building for her inmates. Donating to this noble cause would ensure that some of the poor and the destitute of Delhi have a permanent roof over their heads.
