Love and Laughter


Many children in India face physical and mental challenges alone.

Badal’s disability was diagnosed not long after he was born, in a remote village in India. His parents sadly sent him to live with an aunt in Delhi, knowing the medical care he needed was not available near their home.

His aunt has done her best to provide care and to shield him from unkind comments from his peers.

An estimated 93 million children — or 1 in 20 aged 14 or younger — live with a moderate or severe disability UNICEF says in its 2013 State of the World's Children Report.

Many children with disabilities don't have the loving support Badal has. They face physical and mental challenges alone.
