HEARTS in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh India, needs financial support for housing, food, medical care, and education for young orphaned children.
HIV/AIDS is spreading quickly in India, with 5 million infected adults. As in other poor countries, this will result in millions of orphaned and destitute children. Well-meaning people began to take in neighborhood children, but the need quickly outruns their resources. With help, these small projects can grow into a network of local care providers who can rescue great numbers of children. Little Hearts Orphanage now cares for 42 children, but needs your help not only to maintain, but to expand.
HEARTS orphanage provides a home, nutrition, health care and education to homeless and starving children. Little Hearts will provide nutrition and health training and education to local HIV+ mothers and children.
In the next few years, the need for services for AIDS orphans will become more acute throughout India. This project provides education and hope to children who had nothing. They can now grow up to be productive citizens and end cycles of poverty.
Every time I see children begging on the street my heart breaks into pieces. - C. Prasanna Kumar, Founder & President
