Rukmani had not spoken a word in four years. That changed after she came to live with us.
Story of Rukmani.
Rukmani remembers very little of her life when she was younger except that she is from Firozpur in Punjab. When we started the Home of HOPE in Vasai, Thane in march 2017, She was one of our first residents. Before this the 62-year-old lived in a shelter for people who used to make a living from begging.
The shelter was Rukmani’s home for four long years during which she lived a life far from idea. While she did not have to beg on the streets anymore, she slept in a tiny dormitory with 20 other women! Due to the massive volume of residents at the shelter, it was difficult to get personal care and attention. Rukmani had no friends and no one to talk to. She remembers always being lonely.
The day she arrived at our Home, Rukmani immediately warmed up the fact that she had her own bed in a bright . airy room with an attached bathroom. Instead of 20, she shared the room with just two other women. Initially she kept to herself, but with regular counselling, Rukmani started talking to us. This has slowly helped her cope with the trauma of her past. She has healthy, nutritious meals at our home, and any immediate medical care she needs.
Rukmani spends her time watching TV, she also likes to sit in the garden sometimes She has started interacting with the other residents like Sheela and Ranindra, all of whom have had similar experience ot abandonment an neglect, Rukmani says she likes living with us because she no longer feels alone.
