Namaste Dear Friends,
Thanks for this opportunity to express something about the Little Hearts and its activities for all these years.
When I see children in the streets who are quite insecure and are deprived of love and affection of the parents, no hope for the future and know not what to do to fill their bellies, it had been a big question for me how to eradicate this social evil. Of course, I know for sure that I cannot change the whole situation, but I had the strong inclination of making something for the good of these unfortunate children.
These children, who are mostly unwanted and unclaimed, are being punished for no fault of them.
The parents who are HIV effected, agricultural labourers go to work to earn a wage for their bread leave the children in charge of the younger ones who are toddlers. They do not think of education for a better life than the parents who toil all the day to earn a meagre wage.
There are children who are left in the streets just because their mother is dead and the father marries another; there are children whose mother is deserted by the father and the mother is not in a position to maintain the family by herself; there are children whose parents are died and are at the mercy of their relatives who rarely pay any attention for their wellbeing except using them for household purposes; there are children whose parents might have died of some dreadful disease and no relative comes forward to take up the responsibility. In these days, it is enough if one maintains his own family. No one can bear nor spare something for anyone.
When I took up the task and trying my best for some generous agency that can fund my project, God could make me to come across a benevolent agency like you who have agreed and showed interest to carry on this noble task. Thus I could make things take physical shape and have been running successfully for the upliftment of these children who deserve every help, love and affection, social security and a bright future and can stand on their own as good citizens of the country.
The “little HEARTS orphanage” which was started 25th February 2005, with 20 children grew faster in number and now there are more than 40 children in our care. They are being provided with everything i.e., nutritious diet, clothing, education, love and affection, security besides entertainment, games etc., to fill in them a sense of courage and hope for their future.
Really the River Fund and Global Giving have changed many lives and they will be grateful for your generosity and love you have bestowed on these helpless and unfortunate children.
Everyone is doing well and showing progress in every respect. I am sure all our efforts yield god fruits.
Let me give you an account of the children who are grown up in our home who are hopeful and I expect good future for them.
