Priti Sadan Renovation
The Priti Sadan is home to these beautiful women. Most of them are elderly now. Some came to Mukti as long as 50-60 years ago. They were abandoned by their husbands, in-laws or families for many reasons. Perhaps they could not bare sons, or maybe their husband wanted another wife, or it may have been a dowry problem, they may have been unmarried and pregnant.
Today, some of these women are retired, others still keep Mukti going: their work includes working in the kitchen, the nursery, being house mothers for the girls, nurse aides in the hospital and manning the welcome desk, which is very important for security.
The Priti Sadan is large and spacious with high ceilings and solid walls, but it is also over 100 years old and run-down. There was much to be done to make it comfortable and dry but finally the day came for the women to move back in. The ladies took care organising ‘their’ space and taking pride in arranging all their worldly possessions.
Lorraine says: “When we look at the newly renovated place, it brings tears to our eyes as a sign of gratitude for God’s faithfulness and your love and generosity for these enormous funds given to bring a smile back on the faces of these women. Someone made a beautiful comment the other day “For our standards, it is a 5-star place!!” Praise the Lord”
