Rasna is developing into a very mature and kind young lady. She understands the family situation and helps the family in the daily activities. She is 10 years old and is currently in Grade 6. She secured 6th out of 18 in First Terminal Exam. She has been improving her studies and their parents are very happy with her performance. Rashna looks going to school and be with her friends.
Govinda, her father, has started a new furniture business with the very little money he had and the support from My Small Help. He only makes low bed of 3ft by 6ft in size. He makes 10 beds in one lot at a time and sells to the retail shop. He makes about £45 in a lot which is just enough for the family to eat and stay.
Govinda’s wife Sumitra has given birth to a baby boy about 8 months back. They had wanted a baby boy so that in the future they will have someone who will look after Govinda and Sumitra when they get old. As Govinda is suffering from HIV+, he quickly gets sick, fever, eye pain. He recently had an eye pain for about 15 days. Govinda had never tried to check up for any sign of HIV+ in her wife or children. They all look fine and well.
Currently they have been living in a furniture factory as their house was destroyed by earthquake and their parents have been helping them to build a new house which is currently under construction.
