Anusri and Arun
The case of Arun and Anusri is referred to Star Children from Asha clinic. The children are from far west. The western part of the country is backward from every aspect like education, unemployment, cast, gender and discrimination. Women mainly are treated like a slave from man in this area. As this part of the country is close to India and the rate of unemployment is very high, a lot of people from this area migrate to India in search of work. The father of Arun and Anusri was also one of the many Nepali migrant workers in India.
Their father spent many years of his life working in India. He was out of contact with the family for five years while he was working. After five year one of the villagers found him in New Delhi and then he was brought back to family for some time. Then he went back to India for work with all his family. They stayed in India for a year together. While they were in India, their parents gave them a brother but he died in twenty days after he was born.
Both of the parents were sick while they were in India. They returned back to Nepal, when their mother got sick. Their mother died on 2003 and five months after the death of the mother father also died.
After the death of the parents, they stayed with their grandparents. The grandfather also deceased and the grandmother is too old to take care of any children.
According to the doctor’s report and the family members both the parents died of HIV related disease. Because the parents died of HIV, the children were also being treated like HIV infected children from the other family members and the community. HIV is regarded as a sin in this area also. The financial incapability of the family, social stigma, serial loss of the family members and all the evil situations brought Anita and Arun to Star children in 2005 for the better future. Anusri completed her Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (ANM) course and Arun completes his collage and waiter training from our partnering organization.
