Helping Krutika

Operation Shanti's Project Street has worked on the streets of Mysore for years, helping the women and kids who live there, particularly near the government hospital in the city. Since 2005, we've gotten to know well many of the kids who used to live on the streets, most of whom now stay with us at our children's home, Karunya Mane.

Today, Project Street continues to help our kids' moms and other destitute kids and women who need assistance. Krutika, one of our new friends, is a 15-year-old girl from a very poor family in Chamarajnagar (about an hour from Mysore). She was diagnosed with childhood (Type 1) diabetes a few years ago and needs daily insulin shots.

Krutika's dad is a day laborer. Insulin injections cost about $12 a month (Rs. 600), not much for most people but a huge chunk of dad's monthly income.

Since November 2012, we've been providing Krutika with her monthly insulin injections to help ease the financial burden on her family.

If you'd like to make a donation to Operation Shanti so that we can help more kids like Krutika with life-saving medicines that they simply can't afford, you can do so here:

Thanks so much!
