Aadhar lends a ray of hope to HIV+ girl


Puja (name changed) seven year old, HIV+ girl was seen residing far away from the village in Hirenandi village in Gokak Taluk along with her mother and two and half year old sister.

This is the story in early November when Mahaesh Jadhav of Aadhar and his associate Nagratna were returning back to Belgaum after getting a school leaving certificate done of a child who was earlier admitted to Aadhar orphanage.


When they inquired with Puja as to why they were staying so far off from the village she said that they had AIDS and hence were staying there as the villagers threw them out of the village.

Puja was staying with her mother and her sister who were on the death bed.

Seeing this the “Aadhar” decided to adopt Puja as she was looking strong and if good care was taken she would survive. Nagratna who herself is a HIV+ spoke to Puja’s mother and convinced her that she could live a better life at Aadhar. Puja’s mother wanted to commit suicide but did not, for she cared for her two daughters. Aadhar has also arranged for medicines and food for Puja’s mother and sister.

At present Puja is happily staying at “Aadhar” and has made new friends.
