Abandoned girl children find shelter at Unique Home in Ludhiana

Ludhiana, May 7: A number of girl children, either abandoned by their parents or orphans, have found a shelter at The Unique Home here.

Run by Bhai Ghanayya Ji Charitable Trust, the Unique home provides support to 52 girls, who were abandoned by their parents once and now some of them have grown up..

The institution helps girls become, educated, healthy and responsible citizens.

Many among them have no clue of their families, home or even religious identity but still they are now enjoying their lives being together here. The only religion all follow here is humanity.

Every year, on April 24, they gather to celebrate their common birthday.

These girls have found security and love here that was denied to them by their parents.

"My only wish is to make these girls well qualified so that they can stand on their own feet and live with pride in the society. I want to ask women who gave them the right to abandon their girl child after giving birth to them. It's such a shame and a social evil," said Bibi Prakash Kaur, owner of Unique Home.

These children today attend schools in the city and are encouraged to take up a career.

The backbone of the institution is, Bibi Prakash Kaur. She has made it her mission in life to rehabilitate them.

Inspired by Prakash Kaur, many other girls in the Unique Home have decided to devote their lives to help other abandoned girls.

"I would like to thank the God who created the whole world and made me a girl. I would like to thank Bibi Prakash Kaur, who has taken care of me like a mother. I am extremely thankful to her for her endeavor to groom us. She has done a lot for us, " said Lusy Singh, the girl child.

"I feel it is like a home here and Prakash Kaur ji loves me a lot. She brings beautiful dresses for me. She takes care of us and never gets angry. She treats us like her own children," said Jannat, one of the inmates.

The charity commission of UK has approved and registered ` UK Friends and Unique Home, Punjab' under its charity framework. The project provides facilities and amenities to the Unique Home. (ANI)
