Within a day of HT highlighting the plight of nine HIV+ children at a home near Kolkata, the Bengal government dispatched a team to Ananda Ghar on Thursday, with the promise of medical help within 48 hours.

HT on Thursday had reported about the plight of nine HIV+ children, aged between 6 and 11, who are compelled to endure severe dental problems for more than a year, as no surgeon was found to extract their teeth.

The first offer of help came from dentist Radha Hariharan, who volunteered to treat the children. Later the officials of Aids Prevention Council — Pallab Bhattacharya, Anindita Maitra and Maya Ghosh — reached Ananda Ghar and have promised immediate help.
