Happiness room for Aum Yeshey and her three daughters
During the first lockdown, Aum Yeshey suffered from stroke. Though she survived, she lost mobility on the left half of her body.
Until then, she was raising her three daughters by weaving Kira. But since the fateful day she couldn’t even reach the shared toilet in the neighborhood. She lost her husband a few years ago. Her daughters are nursing her now.
Bhutan Stroke Foundation brought her case to the attention of a few CSOs, including Bhutan Cancer Society , Nazhoen Lamtoen , Bhutan Kidney Foundation and us.
We are happy to report that CSOs collaborated effectively to address the basic needs of the family. We prefabricated a toilet and assembled it right next to her door so that we could free her from the pain of having to drag herself around the house to the shared toilet.
Aum Yeshey and her daughters are overjoyed to have their very own #Happinessroom right next to their door. It’s designed to be convenient for her but as of now, we have some works to be done on the stairs.
