Shipra was born into a Hindu family. Shipra's father and mother abandoned her when she just 3 years old leaving her with her older brother. She and her brother ended up staying in their grandmother's house.
From a very young age, Shipra grew up in an extremely impoverished home. Her grandmother is a widow so she was already struggling to survive then took on Shipra and her brother. During that time someone shared with Shipra's grandmother the Good News of Jesus Christ. Her grandmother accepted Christ and started going to church.
Shipra's struggles didn't just end with the abandonment from her parents. One day her elder brother also ran away from home. Her grandmother was so distressed that she became seriously ill. Her grandmother is currently under treatment. Little Shipra has no one to look after her, therefore, her grandmother requested admittance for Shipra into Mercy Homes.
