Runaway kids on the edge of survival

Runaway kids on the edge of survival
For innumerable children who runaway from their homes for unknown reasons of escaping reality or chasing a dream, Mumbai is the city they head toward to fulfill their dreams!
While some want to meet the superstars of the Bollywood, others want to meet their sports heroes. Most want to be just like them.
Runaway children with dreams in their eyes most often take the train to reach Maximum City Mumbai.
But their dreams die fast. After weeks and months of hardship and on the edge of survival they end up on the streets, railway platforms or just about anywhere trying hard to stay alive.
A team of angels from 'Samatol Foundation' are their saviours. They find these children and rescue them. These little tots are rehabilitated, provided shelter and given the basics along with therapy combined with a lot of love. Samatol Foundation is based out the Daddoji Konddev Stadium in Thane and was founded by Vijay Dada Jadhav, who has so far reunited more than 10,000 runaway children with their parents and rescued more than 15,000 children.
The Afternoon Despatch & Courier photographer, Santosh Gupta visited the Thane shelter and captured the rehabilitation of kids and their childhood moments at their beloved shelter.
