Homeless woman with maggot-invested head gets help

A homeless woman whose head was infested with maggots has been nursed back to health thanks to the help of good Samaritans she calls her ‘angels’.

She was sat crying by the road when volunteers from a charitable organisation spotted her and reached out to her.

Preeti Devi, from north west India, described her rescuers as ‘angels’ and said that without their kind actions she would be dead.

The 30-year-old said she suffered the injuries on her head when a group of people attacked her.  

She was treated and cared for by staff from Apna Ghar at its facilities in Bharatpur, Rajasthan, over a period of five months and now her head has completely healed.

Preeti said: ‘What Apna Ghar and its volunteers have done for me no one will do for a stranger. 

‘Their generous act has restored my faith in humanity. I was dying a slow death by the road. 

‘If these angels hadn’t spotted me and nursed back to health, I would have been dead by now.’
