White Doves reunites 3 'destitutes' with their families

Muhammed, who was picked up from the streets in Mangaluru in February, having lost his mental strength, was medically treated for his mental illness at the White Doves Home and is now reunited with his family back in Hubli.

M  V Shetty College MSW students Nagaraj and Ibrahim, who were associated with the organisation in relation with their field work over the past year, had gone on their holidays to their home town which also happened to be Hubli, during the first week of June. On a request by White Doves Home Founder Corrine Rasquinha, they decided to trace Muhammed’s family in Hubli.

The students went around crowded places and showed Muhammed’s photographs. Some villagers recognised him and directed them to Muhammed’s home. Nagaraj and Ibrahim visited Mohammed’s home and informed his family about Muhammed being at Whites Doves Home in Mangaluru. His family was overwhelmed to hear that he was alive. 

Muhammed’s Aunt Khatun-bi said for the past 12 years Mohammed was under medication and was married and has a son and his wife stopped staying with him, because of his ill health. She said one fine day, he disappeared from the home. A missing complaint was also filed by the family at Kasaba Peth Police Station Hubli. After a long time, the family came concluded Muhammed may be dead.

Khatun-bi thanked Almighty and White Doves for giving Mohammed back to the family. She said she had been a mother to him after his mother died. Here in Mangaluru, Mohammed too, readily agreed to go back to his home.

 A fortnight back, Mallika, aged 38 years, with a three and half year old child was found lying on the road near Mangaluru Railway Station, semi-conscious. White Doves took Mallika in and helped her to come out of the addiction of alcohol and restored her back to her family after finding her home at Kumble. Her family was over joyed to see Mallika alive and reformed.

  In a similar incident last week, Suguna, aged 45, who was found on the streets at Monkey Stand in Mangaluru was restored back to her family at Uppinangady after almost 6 months of rehabilitation at White Doves.

 White Doves has been doing yeomen service to society and the destitute at large. The organisation has restored more than 70 such inmates back with their families all over India.
