Animal Nepal this year was shocked to see handicapped children working as donkey handlers in Lalitpur’s brick factories. Raju and his two brothers work as handlers, after they were recruited by a money lender who borrowed Rs 1000 to their father.  All three boys suffer from an eye condition caused my malnutrition. Their eyes are not well developed and their vision is almost nil.

Animal Nepal today took Raju to Dr Sagun Joshi for a check up. Not much can be done at this point unfortunately, but the boys need to take extra Vitamine A and should wear glasses to protect their eyes. Raju said he felt like a Bollywood star with his new sun shades…

Animal Nepal will follow up with Raju’s family to see what kind of income generation venture can benefit the family.
