Tajamul Shah is a disabled child from a poor family. His parents are rag pickers who earn Rs. 300 a month. That is all they have to support a family of four. They live in a hut with no facilities and could not even provide Tajamul with basic growth and hygiene needs. They were not aware of how they could treat his physical and mental illnesses and had no money to change his fate.Tajamul was brought to a Bal Chetna Outreach center when he was two years old. **He could not walk or stand as his limbs were weak. He also had a problem with his right hand and could not speak well.**He went through a complete assessment after which the special needs staff treated him for rickets and anemia. Then they began his physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and special education. The center also provided him with one nutritious meal and supplements suggested by our doctors to improve his immunity.Three and a half years later, **Tajamul can stand, walk and even run! He can speak and take part in group activities for up to ten minutes. He can control his hand movements well enough to connect dots and colour pictures.**These improvements have helped Tajamul live a better life. The amazing changes he has shown over the years has also made a positive impact on his parents.You can change the lives of children like Tajamul by contributing towards their therapy, medicine and nutrition.

Services include Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Music Therapy, Special Education, Speech Therapy, Psychological Evaluation, Vocational Training, Midday meal, Supplementary Nutrition, and Counselling for parents. The multi-specialty team at Bal Chetna constantly improvise teaching aids and techniques to provide a variety of stimuli to the children.

About The NGO

Delhi Council for Child Welfare started its work to provide care to the displaced, lost or abandoned children in the riots surrounding the Partition of India. It is an NGO that now provides services to the underprivileged children of Delhi and the neighboring regions to promote their health, development, economic and social wellbeing. The most well-known programme of DCCW is Palna, home for the abandoned, homeless and destitute children. At Palna, infants arrive in a precarious state of health and the best possible medical care is given to them.
