The story of Reunion- Hasan Ali
“The love of the family is life’s greatest blessing”
For 9 long years, Hasan Ali was deprived of this blessing! Having lost his way when he was 6 years old, Ali was unable to furnish details of his family before the police. It was then; the CWC decided and placed him in a CCI in Gurugram, where he lived for 8 years before finally being placed to Udayan Care.
On a trip to an amusement park, he mentioned to our Udayan Ghar coordinator, Ashique Ali, that he was familiar with the places en route. This triggered the quest to find Ali’s family, which after persistent efforts met success.
We applaud Ashique Ali’s continuous and untiring efforts in reuniting a family and hope the best for Hasan, who has now returned to his family.
