Somraj and Saraswati are siblings. Their father passed away in the year 2015 due to old age. He was an old man of 80 years old when he died. A year after his passing, their mother also departed this world due to hepatitis. After the passing of both their parents, Somraj and Saraswati lived with their older sister who was 14 years old at that time.
Everything went well, until their older sister went missing one day. She left their home in Kakani and never returned. The villagers reported her disappearance to the police, but she was never found.
When we first found the siblings, they were both living under the same roof with goats, chickens, and cows. The siblings had nothing in the house – no water, electricity, bed, table, nor chair. And they did not even have cooking utensils, much less food.
They had another sister who provided them with their meals daily, but that was all. The children were mainly left to fend for themselves.
We hence brought them to SCIF @ Volunteer Work Nepal based on great empathy for these two siblings, and their extremely poor living conditions.
Since coming to SCIF @ Volunteer Work Nepal, both siblings have made much progress. Saraswati especially has progressed very well, and is one of the most intelligent of all the children in the house. And when it comes to school, she is one of the top students. Learning comes effortlessly to her.
Aside from her obvious intelligence, her other fortes is her cheerfulness and her kind heart.
