Orphans of Tamil Nadu need our help!

Summary

Dayspring Home provides refuge to children affected by HIV/AIDS and/or TB. The children cared for by the home are either orphaned due to death of family members caused by HIV/AIDS, or infected and thus rejected from their family home due to stigma surrounding the disease. Blossom provides ongoing social and medical support and seeks to combat the isolation created by the stigma attached. You can help build a future for these children.

Challenge

Children living below the poverty line are particularly vulnerable to HIV/AIDS and/or TB infection and are often abandoned when they or their parents are ill. Blossom has rescued a number of deserted children found wandering the streets alone. Due to a lack of local government provision, Blossom's Dayspring Home is often the only one caring for these children's welfare. Please help us to provide these children with the love, care and security they need and that should be every child's right.

Solution

Dayspring Home has the infrastructure and experience to care for these children, with your support we can continue to provide these vulnerable children with the security needed to create a better future.

Long-Term Impact

Many of these children have been abandoned due to the stigma and lack of education surrounding disease in our communities. By reintegrating these children back into society, we are building a better future free from prejudice and discrimination. These children have the possibility to be tomorrow's leaders.
