“Aashiana-The Shelter Trust” is a nonprofit able organization working with HIV infected affected families. Aashiana was registered on 25th January 2011(Registration Number 241/2011-2012) with the Registrar of Societies and Trusts. Presently, we are providing nutritional/medical support to 73-75 families every month.
Your support will help change lives of underprivileged women and children.
1. During the ongoing pandemic, HIV+ people are looking for help since taking a step outside their house is equivalent to walking through a contagion minefield. Despite the danger they continue to put their lives at risk to provide for their loved ones.
2. HIV attacks a specific type of immune system cell in the body known as CD4 helper cell/T cell. When HIV destroys this cell, it becomes harder for the body to fight off other infections and something as minor as a common cold can be much more severe and life threatening.
Your help is crucial to help our HIV positive (infected & affected) families meet basic living expenses – food, water, and rent.
We continue to visit their homes to distribute monthly rations, provide financial support, and give some comfort.
We aim to provide dry ration and hygiene kits to our 75 affected families, single mothers, widows, the aged and infirm. Each kit costs INR 1000.
Our aim is to help these families feel safer and less vulnerable. We also strive to keep them loan- free during this pandemic and discourage panicked mass movement back to their villages. This will keep them safer from exposure to COVID19 and flatten the curve for us all.
