Nothing much interesting to blog this week except for some nice links:
(*) First is about the Archive tool, that I discovered. It provides almost all the features of winzip. One good thing I like is the tree view of the files, which I've been longing for in winzip. More importantly its a free tool !. Click here to know more.
(*) Next is a different kind of search engine. All I have to say is its nice idea and try it yourself to see what it is.
(*) Found a good site.
Yesterday is the last Valentine's Day that I enjoy as a bachelor - hopefully !
Morning, as usual went to office. Surfed the net and then chat with my friends. Then I went to CHES. I was very much impressed by the work of Dr. Manorama. Immediately, I decided to help. But donno in what way should I help. I've posted a request to Imaigal, hope to get positive replies from other members. I've posted mail to many of my friends too. Here is some info abt CHES:
(*) There are around 100 children in that org, who are HIV +
(*) They keep the children in the hospital and also they have a ashramam (which I didn't visit) in a separate building
(*) The owner of the building doesn't know that its going to be used for this, and he is strongly against this. He has gone to the court and won the case. Now they have appealed in high court and the case is going. So they are immediately in need of a new place and they can give a rent of 10k - 15 k per month
(*) They do get funds from govt/international orgs, but they are very limited. Rs. 20 for food/child/day which is not enough for obvious reasons
(*) They are having lot of other expenses too - they have started sending few children to school (Only the principal knows the fact that these children are HIV+ and no one else knows about this) They need money for this
(*) Recently they have started finding out foster parents to adopt the children. The foster parents are poor and they too have children. CHES has given them money for this child as well as for their own children
(*) They have more plans, but money is a primary need
If you are interested in helping them in some way or the other, you can mail me.
