A Single Ray of Light Can Bring Hope


The poignant story of this 11-year-old girl, Jamuna, teaches us that not all is lost even when the future looks bleak. Jamuna, afflicted with Down’s syndrome, has been having learning, vision, and speech difficulties since childhood. It is really commendable that her parents and teachers are striving hard to give her as near normal a life as possible. Sankara’s Rainbow team, who visited her school and reviewed her among other pupils, have counselled her mother to bring the child to the hospital for further review of her vision. Sankara has taken the first step towards making one good thing possible for this child.. a ray of light in an otherwise cloudy day. Tomorrow is another day, but there is still hope!
