WOMEN IN NEED

Right in the centre of India lies Nagpur. 70% of the population live in suburban slums. 'WIN' reaches out to many women with a variety of medical and socio-economic problems.  Whilst working with WIN I visited one of the shelters that looks after mentally ill women. This was an extremely hard experience, and meeting some women that had fully recovered but were not accepted back in to their families was heart breaking. We also went round visiting many women in their homes. Mental health, recovered leprosy patiences, cancer and aids were the main focus.  This charity does an amazing job in a country that gives little to no help to women.
