Reason Behind Million Smiles: The Story Of A Boy

Amidst the backdrop of the relentless COVID-19 pandemic, the struggles of those residing in slums have been starkly highlighted.

The challenges of daily life in these communities have been further compounded by the global health crisis, leaving many vulnerable to its devastating effects. However, amidst the turmoil, organizations like Voice of Slum in Noida have emerged as beacons of hope, extending a helping hand to those in need.

Voice of Slum (VOS), with its unwavering commitment to the welfare of slum-dwelling children, has been at the forefront of providing essential support and assistance during these trying times.

Through their tireless efforts, they have continued to uphold their mission of empowering and educating the underprivileged youth of the slums.

One such individual whose life has been profoundly impacted by the compassionate work of VOS is Naresh. Demonstrating remarkable intelligence from a young age, Naresh found solace and opportunity within the corridors of VOS. With their guidance, he secured admission to an English medium school, promising a brighter future. However, the onset of the pandemic brought unforeseen challenges to Naresh’s doorstep.

Tragically, Naresh’s family bore the brunt of the pandemic’s economic fallout. With his mother losing her source of livelihood and his father succumbing to the virus, the family found themselves grappling with unprecedented loss and financial strain. Forced to sell their possessions to make ends meet, Naresh’s once-promising future hung in the balance.

In the face of adversity, organizations like Voice of Slum stand as pillars of support, offering hope and assistance to those in need.

Through their relentless dedication, they continue to uplift and empower individuals like Naresh, ensuring that no child’s dreams are extinguished by the harsh realities of poverty and disease. As Naresh navigates the challenges that lie ahead, he does so with the unwavering support and guidance of VOS, a beacon of light in the darkest of times.

During the lockdown, Voice of Slum maintained regular contact with all the kids to ensure their well-being. Unfortunately, Naresh was unreachable as his family had sold their mobile phone to sustain themselves during the crisis. Despite efforts to locate him through friends, Naresh remained elusive. One day, out of desperation, Naresh reached out to Voice of Slum seeking assistance with ration for his family. He shared the challenges he faced during the lockdown. Responding promptly, Voice of Slum provided ration support to Naresh and his family. Naresh was deeply moved to see Chandni and receive aid from her. With the organization’s help, Naresh and his mother embarked on starting a small vegetable shop, offering them a source of income to meet their needs and regain stability.

Voice of Slum has been instrumental in empowering numerous children and families by assisting them in launching their own small businesses.

This support ensures that they are not left hungry during challenging times and have the means to earn a livelihood independently. The dedicated staff members of the NGO are tirelessly exploring diverse avenues to provide assistance to those impacted by the loss of employment during the pandemic. Through unwavering efforts, Voice of Slum remains committed to extending continuous support to those in need, exemplifying compassion and solidarity in times of adversity.

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
