I happened to spend a day with Jeena few years back with my mother and my older brother who is a special needs kid.. It was very emotional. It is great to see an organization like this which provides support system to each other as against the times when my mother brought up my older brother in India.. Wish Jeena the very best in everything it does.. it is a great cause. Tell your story here and help others understand this charity
My daughter was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 years. I had never heard this word earlier. I was so confused and didn't know what to do next. I heard from my friend about Jeena. I visited this center and I felt that there were so many parents in the same boat and guiding each other. I felt safe by joining Jeena , where I can get my issues discussed, where other parents understand us and where we can come up with solutions, finally where can try to plan an safe future for our special need kids.
My chils has special needs, and was diagnosed when he was 3 years. At that time there was hardly any support readily available, knowledge sharing, and even a forum to bond with other parents who had similar issues. Jeena provided that platform, and through its online discussion forums, and onsite activities, families had a venue to share experiences and help each other.
I became a member of Jeena 1 year back and since then its a good knowledge bank for us. Any problem we face in our day to day life with our special needs kids and we post it, we get such valuable suggestions from all parents. I was overwhelmed when I attended the Jeena annual function and saw all special kids performing n doing so much. Jeena helps us parents in motivating us to do so many things with our kids which we thought is not possible. It brings us all together as a family.
