Tenzin Kunchok is from Dungti Jhangthang, a remote desert area in Leh, Ladakh. Tenzin Kunchok lives with his mother and elder brother. His father abandoned him soon after he knew that Kunchok was a disabled child. In order to feed the two young children and for better treatment of Kunchok, their mother worked in different houses.
The child has had difficulties with speech, movement, mental retardation, and epilepsy since birth. He is in need of full assistance on his daily activities, such as feeding, dressing, toileting etc. The mother admitted him in this special needs school with a hope for better treatment and diet. Any help provided for Tenzin Kunchok la would be highly appreciated!
