Shubham was born and brought up in a Christian family. His father abandoned the family when he was just very young. Shubham and his sisters were left alone during this difficult time.
None of Shubham's relatives were willing to help support them. Shubham's mother needed to find work immediately to try to provide for the family's needs. She found work in a office.
Even though her elder sister Shraddha, joined Mercy Homes in 2007, Shubham's mother continues to struggle to provide for him and his sister.
Shubham is now studying in class 8 and would like to continue his education.
