He disclosed the Ashram also partnered with Food For the Poor in providing three mattresses and sheets to the family, who previously slept on the ground. Reading materials and other useful schooling amenities were also provided for the children.The devotees of the Ashram during their visit offered words of encouragement to the mother and assured her the Ashram will continue to assist her to provide for her children.Headmistress of the Hindu College Rajkumarie Singh spoke to the children encouraging them to take education seriously.

The mother explained that she provides for her family with whatever meagre domestic work she is afforded.Living on a plot of land provided by her husband’s parents, Singh lives with her children in a shack that can only accommodate four persons, but the family has to make the best of a bad situation, she lamented.Apart from helping the family, the Ashram last weekend also assisted families in Unity, Cove and John, Beehive, East Coast Demerara, with bed sets and food hampers.
