Special kids to get residential facilities
Here’s good news for all Parsi parents with special kids. The Bombay Parsi Punchayet (BPP), the biggest Parsi trust in the city, plans to setup a special residential facility for the kids. The facility will primarily be a shelter for those kids who outlive their parents and it will also act as a guidance centre for parents with special kids.
The Punchayet has already conducted one meeting at Rustom Baug in Byculla to discuss the issue of special kids and around 50 forms have already been filled. “Some parents are hesitant and they do not want to come out in the open, as they fear the social impact,” said Dr Aban Mirza, another community member. The next meeting is likely to be held at Bharucha Baug in Andheri.
