Welcome to Shuktara

Shuktara is a charity based in Kolkata, India, which provides care for children and young people with disabilities who have no family to take care of them.



We have just welcomed Moni to shuktara.

On Wednesday 10th September Moni was brought to us by Childline India Foundation who had found her in North Kolkata alone and unable to walk. They immediately contacted our Chairman, Pappu Mishra, who went to visit her in hospital, where she was being kept for observation.

He agreed that our girls home Lula Bari would be the best place for her and they brought her to us the next day.

It is too early to say anything about Moni except that she seems very happy to be with the other girls and is settling in really well.
