|I am Devaki Devi Chaudhary. I live in Udaypur with my five children. My children are world to me. Twelve years back, two of my daughters started experiencing mental health conditions which crashed my world and my family scattered. I sought help from traditional healers but everything went in vain. Unwillingly, I was obligated to lock my daughters in a room where I used to tie my younger daughter’s leg with a rope; imagine what might have gone through a mother’s heart. After many dark years, I got to know about KOSHISH from my neighbor. After few assessment, KOSHISH started treatment of my daughters in Transit Care Services. Initially, I had no trust on the treatment and I was hesitated to send my daughters. KOSHISH staffs used to communicate with me about my daughter’s health on regular basis which helped me to overcome my hesitation and lack of trust toward KOSHISH.|
My daughters spent four months in transit care and their mental health condition improved. I cried with happiness, looking at their transformation in mere time of four months. They were no more the same miserable girls. They look happy and different.
My elder daughter is recovering faster than my younger one but I am more positive towards their recovery now. My elder daughter supports me in every household works and vegetable farming. She takes care of the home in my absence. Whereas, I am relieved that my younger daughter can at least take care of herself now. My daughters are living examples for everyone in the community who once thought that my daughters are burden. This was all possible with the effort of my neighbor and KOSHISH. I will always be grateful to them.
