Admitted to HOINA March 3, 2007 at age 4 years, 11 months and 17 days
Family Background: The parents of Sarath Kumar, Mr. Srinivasa Rao and Ms. Lalitha, were married in 1997. At that time Mr. Rao was working as a lorry/truck driver. Unfortunately, he was addicted to alcohol. Two children were born to this marriage, Sarath Kumar and a sister, who is older. The father died in October, 2005 at age 38. After the death of her husband, the mother left her children with her mother-in-law and went to her parent’s home. She died there in July 2006 of Tuberculosis. The grandmother was a widow, so sought admission for both children to our HOINA homes.
Sarath Kumar is in Upper Kindergarten in an English medium. He enjoys Cricket and his favorite animal is the elephant. He wishes to become a driver then he is grown. The HOINA staff describes him as calm, with good manners and a smiling face.
