Essakimuthu’s story

Essakimuthu was affected by polio when he was young and lived at the boys’ home for most of his life. He was educated at school in Palayamkottai, and in his spare time had the opportunity to learn music. He has now returned to his village and is living a productive and happy life. He runs a small shop as well as playing the tabla at his church. He is just one of the many boys who have benefited from the support given to them by Dr Karuna Chelliah, the Board Members and the wardens of the home.
