Shyam is a 2 years old child. He was brought to Snehankur adoption centre on 15th April 2015.

Why are we raising funds?
We want to help Snehalaya raise funds for the medical and daily needs of Shyam and many other babies like him. Snehankur is a child adoption project under the organisation of Snehalaya. They get children from various circumstances, most of them are in very critical condition and mostly premature. Snehankur gives them proper medical care and then the babies are given off for adoption to families.
Most of them are premature babies who need to be hospitalised until they become strong and healthy. The babies also need injections to make them immune and these medicines cost about 30,000 each month along with hospitalization expenses.
The daily expenses of these children include baby food. Each bottle of Nestogen comes for about Rs. 170. There are about 30 babies in Snehankur on average consuming 8-10 bottles per day. This makes for around 248 - 300 bottles a month, the cost of baby food itself is about 51,000 for a month.
This organisation receives about 7-8 new babies a month and nurtures them to health. At the same time 5-6 children are adopted each month.
What do we plan to do with the funds?These funds will help Snehankur continue to provide the medical and facilities to the new babies that come in every month.
