Child Relief Integrated Social Action, is a Non-Governmental, Non-profit, Child Welfare Organization registered with the Government of Andhra Pradesh under the Societies Act and was operating since 1997. It was established with the sole aim to bring hope and happiness into the lives of the underprivileged children of India. we are working for these Children on Health and Education in the under-developed rural and Urban areas of Andhra Pradesh.
Thousands of children in India live in extreme poverty and poor health condition and are under-privileged . A large number of children are found on the City streets, finding other means to survive. Deaths of parents, severe illnesses, acute poverty, abuses etc., are some of the factors that force these unfortunate children on to the streets, where they are forced to work, and get exploited, maltreated, and abused. They are trying so hard to survive by begging, picking rags, shoe shining, and whatever menial jobs they can find. Many a times gangs implement and exploit them in these operations doe their own benefit coupled with this misfortune, they have to support their parents too, and with these miseries, their little minds devoid to achieve big but reasonable and realistic Dream for a better tomorrow.
We, at CRISA, have a great burden for these underprivileged children. Our goal is to provide a home for these deprived children, where they will get reasonable nutrition, clothing, and education. Our programs are structured to nurture them towards a "WHOLE" child, by promoting a balance of social, physical, mental, and spiritual inputs and achieve growth in their mental faculties, which helps them to achieve his/her full potential. As we are well aware of AIDS, which is spreading like a wild fire especially among the rural and urban poor in Andhra Pradesh, India. It is predictable that in the coming few years in India alone HIV will kill 10,000 people, widowing up to 5,000 women and orphans up to 20,000 children every day. Going by current growth trends, if there are no prevention strategies, by 2015, 50 percent of the population will be afflicted with the disease and 40 million children will be rendered orphans, making India the global headquarters for AIDS. We are in the process to take up these pending projects immediately one by one .
The top priority one is CARE AND SUPPORT HOME (CASH) for the HIV- effected children and their parents by protecting their human rights including right to access health care system, right to education, employment and privacy, and to prevent women and children and other socially vulnerable groups from getting infected. Improving the health education, legal status and economic prospects. Creating awareness on Gender, Human rights, HIV testing, Prevention of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Condom promotion, and Counseling.
The other Project is CHILD REHABILATION PROJECT (CRP) which provides Education, food, shelter, clothing, and health to the working children, Street Children & Orphan Children.
Though our Aim and Mission may be a drop in an Ocean, and with achieve support of kind hearted people with full of humane touch, we are for sure to fulfill our Mission and its goals, we seek the financial assistance and support, and looking forward for Individual donors, donor Agencies and Charity Organizations, who could extend their helping hands for these ill-fated and under-privileged children to bring smiles on their faces towards brightening their lives.
