Channa Reddy garu on Jan 13, 2019 we continue with the seva activities with even more zeal and vigor and look forward to working with all to make it a better society for ALL of us.

Kids with Down-Syndrome have a genetic disorder which causes distortions in the physical and emotional development of the child. In every cell in the human body there is a nucleus, where genetic material is stored in genes. Genes carry the codes responsible for all of our inherited traits and are grouped along rod-like structures called chromosomes. Typically, the nucleus of each cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, half of which are inherited from each parent. Down syndrome occurs when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21.

We thank all the volunteers, including the NCC & NSS groups from AV College, Aurora College and others. Different NGOs incl. BOSF, HelloHyderabad.org, Grama Bharati, Yuva Power, Marri Krishna Reddy Memorial Educational & Charitable Trust, etc. Their support was critical to make this event a grand success. We plan to continue such initiatives in the near future with support from all concerned.
