Parallax – Battle of the Beats

Three 11th grade students (Trishika Gupta, Sashwat Gupta, Subhash


Chintalapati) from different schools came together to form team Parallax.
Their goal was to raise funds for underprivileged children. They hosted a very
successful “Battle of the Beats” where 7 amateur DJs were given a platform to
showcase their talents. The winners received cash prizes. They teamed up with
DJ school Patsav and their venue partner was OTM Jubilee Hills.

The team did a fantastic job of raising funds through ticket sales as well as
individual sponsorships. Kudos to the entire team and their very supportive
parents who collected over 8 lakhs, all of which was donated to ABC.

Thank you team Parallax!!

Runner/Staff Updates

We had 9 admissions last quarter. We continue to struggle with some of


our repeat cases. One child that is severely immune compromised has
spent most of the quarter hospitalized. She is getting better, but it has
been a slow process. Another child has a blood disorder and continues to
need monthly transfusions. We have our 2 CHD babies that need extra
care as they are susceptible to respiratory infections.
We spent close to 8.5 lakhs for the care of these children in the last
quarter.
A big thanks to Dr. Praveen for conducting a dermatology camp in
October.
Meanwhile, we continue our non-mandatory immunization project with
another round of the pneumococcal vaccine.

Yearly Sari distribution to all staff at both the orphanages we support.


300 happy faces!

Events/Highlights
One of our Corporate Sponsors visited the orphanage and spent time
with the older kids. They also brought a lot of goodies with them.

Feedback shared by a volunteer:


Dear ABC friends, thank you for allowing us to spend time with the kids on Friday. Our
experience is way beyond words. Each year on impact day I felt content for giving back to the
society. But this year the feeling is entirely different! There is so much to be done and so few
hands! Really appreciate and commend all your selfless efforts towards these children. God
bless you all immensely!
