Keerthivisan is eleven years old, and likes skipping, eating cake, and studying. He came to Cornerstone Children’s Home in 2005, carrying with him the burden of a very traumatic family history. His father was both a drug addict and a sexual offender, having abused Keerthivisan’s older sister on numerous occasions. When their mother found out about her husband’s actions, she took Keerthivisan and his siblings, and ran away from home. For some time, she battled with a deep depression, and was unable to care for her children alone. Thankfully, the Child Welfare Office sent Keerthivisan and his brother to Cornerstone Children’s Home, where they could study and grow in a more stable environment. Their sister was sent to an all-girls home.
Keerthivisan is now studying well and coming to terms with his past ordeals. When he’s older, he’d like to work in the army. Your donations and support can help ensure he continues to receive the right level of care and attention he deserves, along with his brother and other disadvantaged children in the region. Meanwhile, Big Hug Foundation and Cornerstone Trust are doing everything they can to help Keerthivisan’s mother cope with her own situation.
