Inauguration of PCVC Residential Shelter, Uttarakhand
On the eve of Children's day, PCVC inaugurated the Residential Shelter for Boys! We began with the initial parents meetings, shelter admissions, orientation and then some fun and games. The new staff and children seem extremely excited and we really look forward to the wonderful journey that lies ahead..
In the third week of June 2013, extremely heavy rainfall led to severe flooding in the Kedarnath-Badrinath region of Uttarakhand. The result of this was large scale devastation – houses, schools, farms, river banks, cars, livestock, and people were washed away. This tragedy resulted in the loss of thousands of lives, both local villagers and visiting pilgrims, as well as the livelihoods of the survivors in nearby villages.
