In the month of July 2018, we had found this family living at Balasore railway station. There were four girls named Joshoda, Nandini, Chandini and Lizza and one boy named Babul and all were begging at the railway station and their parents were alcoholic and used to collect bottles and polythene.Due to frequent interaction with the family, after few days, we got to known that the family had a small land at their village Kantabania,Mayurbhanja. So we took them to that village and invested 15 thousand rupees for building a small house with asbestos and mud. We had admitted the children in a nearby govt school, Badagopalpur Primary School.
After some months, i.e in the beginning of 2019, we had placed three elder girls to two different nearby govt undertaking free hostels with concerning the daily drinking habits of their parents and the small size of the house.But the boy Babul and the youngest daughter Lizza are still living at the village with their mother. Slowly the mother is trying to live a normal life now avoiding the old habit of alcohol. Although the 3 girls are now in hostels, but they do not feel like they were rescued from railway station, rather they feel that they came to the hostel from their own home and they can visit their home on vacations.
