Life at Mission Ashra
Evening Prayer – The residents at ASHRA made it a habit to assemble and pray before going to sleep
When Nazia came to Mission Ashra she was a 30-year-old woman suffering from mental illness. Nazia was from Baram Pada, Jajpur. She was rescued by police personnel and brought to our centre. At that time her physical and mental condition did not allow her to answer any question however the staff at Ashra provided immediate primary medical care to her. After 15 days her health improved, her food intake became regular and with time she looked and felt better.
Panapatri came to our centre with her new born child. She was rescued with the help of District Magistrate of Balangir who found her wandering in the street with her child. She was not in a state to take care of herself and her child. After 20 days’ observation the counselor called her for the first session where she kept numb, and only began to speak during the third session. The family was not ready to accept her in the beginning but after our counsellors spoke to the family member. Panapatri’s husband came to receive her along with their eldest son and daughter in law. It was a happy reunion for everyone at Mission Ashra.
Binu Rani Aged 38 is a married woman from Bhatinda, Punjab. She belongs to a lower middle class family. Her husband’s name is Bipin Kumar. Her husband works as a waiter in a hotel. She has two sons and two daughters. She came to Mission Ashra with her 4 years old boy. Physically she was very weak so initial medical treatment was provided to her in which we came to know she has 6 months of pregnancy. At first her family members were not ready to accept her but our professionals convinced them to take back her home. Mission Ashra continues its effort to bring smile for the destitute and mentally ill women. It was a proud and happy moment for Mission Ashra’s team for successful reunion with her family.
