Now she is receiving proper care form Madhu Tugnait. Madhu has stated that these children are brought to her by the police from government’s Sishu Kendra. These children are abandoned by their parents because of their physical and mental defects or because they are born a girl.

Madhu was a fashion designer and owned a boutique in the past. She would often hear news of children and old people being abandoned.

In order to start taking care of these people, she sold her jewelry and her flat to get the needed financial support.

In the beginning she had to go through a lot of troubles to take care of these children. But now she has settled in Visakhapatnam since the last 22 years and is helping children.
