Seen in the First 3 photographs is Master Vijay (Late) and
the Last one (4th Photograph) is his 2nd Elder brother Muthu,
who is suffering from Cerebral Palsy and bed ridden.

          Master VIJAY (18 Years) was identified by the Founder of the Trust Mr.M.P,Arokiaraj and Co-Founder Mr.Robert Wheeler (Wales, U.K ) in January 2005, during the relief works of T-Sunami at Adayalacherry, Kalpakkam, close to the T-Sunami affected villages. Vijay has  2 elder brothers and an younger brother who is studying in 1st Standard in School.

         His Father died a decade ago due to Cancer and the Mother is a daily wages labourer and the only bread-winner of the family with 4 sons. For  the last 2 years the eldest brother of Vijay eaks out his living working as an Electrical assistant.

         Master Vijay was studying 5th Standard at the time of identification and Mr.Robert, adopted him and provided for his needs, including Wheel Chair, Medical Support, Dress and beddings in addition to maintain his health with nutrients, such as Complan and Cereals at regular intervals.

          In the year 2011, Vijay expressed his desire to possess a Mobile Phone which was provided to him instantly. He used to call the Founders of the Trust for his basic needs as well as inviting them at regular intervals.

         Both Vijay and Muthu were taken for treatment and Consultancy to a Neurologist at Chingleput a few times by car, which ended up in vain , as the Physician expressed his inability for the cure. Subequently, His demise in the month of February 2013 , due to Chest compression, Cold and Post-Polio Paralysis, shaken the hearts of the Members of the Trust.   The Members and the Committee paid to the last ceremonies and Tribute for his Soul to rest in Peace.

          Vijay’s  younger brother who is studying In 1st Standard is the proposed inmate to our Orphanage at M’Kandigai.
