and happy heart. Lucy, our most courageous girl still tries to walk on her hind legs being
happy and cheerful as always.
Raksha started working more than five years ago with the aim of providing quality education to
all the young children who are not as privileged as others, helping them to become strong
and independent individuals to cater transformation in the society. Based in Prayagraj,
Raksha expanded slowly and steadily, taking up projects for environment protection like
plantation drives and bird-house installations in schools.
We got it registered as an NGO about one and a half years ago after starting an All-India, 24-
hours available helpline number for animals three years back, realizing the importance of animal welfare and protection in our city. Raksha works for treatment of injured animals, feeding strays,
fostering injured or abandoned animals, getting animals adopted and also in spreading
awareness about animal rights and protection through various outreaches and
Raksha has been feeding, treating, fostering and getting animals adopted since a long time
with increasing numbers each day. Puchka came to Raksha about a year ago with severe
maggot infestation on his face. Maggots had eaten up a large portion of his face and he was in
extreme pain and wouldn’t have survived one more day without treatment. Following proper treatment his wound has almost healed, making him healthy again.
Lucy was yet another severe case who had lost her fore legs in a train accident and had lost a lot of blood. It seemed impossible for her to survive and lead a normal life again but we had kept our hopes high. Our efforts and her courage worked miracles and now it is an extremely happy sight to see her trying to get up and walk again. There have been many such cases over the years,
including dogs, cats, cattle, birds and many other animals that we have seen growing into
healthy and happy individuals again.
What can you do?
Raksha School has been taking care of educating about 70 children currently, providing
them with basic stationery items along with catering to the needs of the increasing number of
injured and abandoned animals on a daily basis. It is becoming extremely difficult to manage
the expenses of treatment, medicines, food, transportation and other items of care and
maintenance with limited finances. Working without a proper shelter is another challenging
task as it is becoming difficult to accommodate new cases each day.
We borrowed some amount of money about one and a half years back that has to be repaid too along with maintaining the financial stability to continue our work for children and animals who find comfort in us when they are suffering and are being ignored on the road.
Please come forward to help us in building a shelter for animals, treating and feeding them
and contribute in our fight for their justice, safety and well-being.
