April 2019 Report

Dear friends of Dayspring Home,

First and foremost let me just say, thank you! There are not enough words to express our appreciation for your kindness and support. Seeing our students finish their exams this week was a proud moment for us, and we’d like to thank you as our donors for your continued support improving the futures for children in rural South India. 

Supporting Dayspring’s Children

As you have read on our GlobalGiving page, our Dayspring children’s home, located in a rural village in the south of India, is home to 30 children between the ages of 3 and 18. The children here have all been affected by HIV/aids and or TB in some respect; orphaned by the disease, infected and then rejected by their families or can no longer be supported by infected family members. Our NGO, Blossom Trust, founded the Dayspring Home in 2002 to ensure these children still have the same opportunities as their peers. We take care of the children's medical expenses, educational needs, three meals a day, clothing and social support. All of these services for these children require funding as we rely on private donations to cover annual operating expenses and to promote the overall welfare of the children. In India, a little money can go a long way. 

Emergency at Dayspring Home

Unfortunately, this month there was a disaster at Dayspring Home. There was a catastrophic fire that destroyed one of our buildings and injured some of our staff members. Although we are thankful none of the children were injured, the loss of this building was terrible. We are currently gathering donations to fix the fire damages. If you would like to help please see our microproject for the fire. With your help, we can repair the damages and make sure the children feel safe in our home! 

Supporting Children’s Education

Our children’s education is one of our highest priorities as it creates opportunities for children to escape poverty and become independent. We’ve invested time and money into providing educational support. This year we’ve accepted a number of volunteers to come and provide supplement English classes as well to improve their foreign language abilities. We’ve also helped our student prepare for their exams this month by providing nutritional food to help them focus and by providing internet resources to help improve studying.

We sincerely thank you for your generosity and hope you recognize the incredible impact you are having on the children. It is only together that we can fight against poverty and discrimination.  Please contact us if you have any questions about the children's home, funding or our organization. We will keep you informed of how your money is being used, and continue to send updates of the Dayspring Home.

 

With best wishes and our sincere gratitude,

Mercy Annapoorani, the Blossom Trust Team & the children of Dayspring Home
