VT Seva Atlanta Volunteers Step up to Serve Special Needs Children

A person's most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help others.

We can definitely say that our volunteers are always listening and finding ways to be most helpful in the most needed times. Here is a very inspiring story about the partnership with local community in Atlanta and the impact our youth volunteers had.

17 Youth volunteers from VT Seva Atlanta donated 4000 masks to the Special Needs Kids of Laurel Heights hospital since Covid-19 started in the year 2020.

Laurel Heights provides high quality psychiatric and behavioral care to children. They have a residential program for children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and a specialty acute inpatient unit for children in psychiatric crisis with co-occurring neurodevelopmental disabilities. They also offer general psychiatric acute care for children ages 6 – 17. As COVID-19 hit, the personal safety of physicians has become challenging and knowing this, VT Seva immediately came forward to help. Supplies were procured, children got trained to sew the masks and quickly worked on amazing quality reusable masks. They youth volunteers under the guidance of Dr. Madhu, N and Ms. Sandhya, Y not only provided the quality masks but also created training videos for others to quickly learn and help. This shows the amazing leadership

and a true spirit of volunteerism.

This has helped the Laurel Heights Hospital focus on what they do best, taking care of the patients with additional safety measures.
