Christmas Fragrance

                 Amidst Christmas Celebrations 2010 !

God is Love

Christmas is all about love

Christmas is all about Sharing 

Christmas is thus about God and Love

Love is the key to peace among all mankind

Love is the key to peace and happiness within all creation

Love needs to be practiced - love needs to flow - love needs to make happy !

We are excited and happy to share this wonderful event of celebrations with you all this Christmas 2010. We celebrated Christmas with the children in urban slum of Borabanda (Nomadic Colony) which is a backward slum area located in Hyderabad Urban Slum just  20  Km away from in main city. 

The people here dwell in an un-hygienic atmosphere in the midst of heaps of garbage stored, which is their main source of livelihood.  All the parent’s professsion is rag picking and garbage lifters who look through tins, foils, metals, anything worthy to earn livelihood by selling.

During these Celebrations, we distributed new clothing to the children.  They were excited to receive absolutely readymade new clothing but whereas their mothers picked rags from the dust bins and provide them clothing.  They live in dumps and they sleep in dumps and they re fed in dump and they are surrounded by unwanted scrap,  foil smelling, unable to stand even for five minutes when we visit there.  This distribution bought overjoy with happy and cheerful faces beyond our imaginations and children’s expectations.

This is all possible only with the generous support by the Donors of Globalgiving which covers miles a distances even to touch the dumps/slums/nomadic colonies.   We extend our heartfelt gratitude from the depth of our hearts to the compassionate, concerned, generous donors.

Please pray for these children as you are the helping hand for these destitute, poor children who crave for the love and concern.

“Every pie of yours is precious in the sight of God

and you shall reap hundredfold inturn”
