Many children under the age of 5 die in India. This has to do with the fact that, among other things, there is poor hygiene, the caste system and a lack of clean drinking water. People live close together in small huts and waste is thrown on the street. The result is often that children become ill, have diarrhea and, due to lack of financial resources, cannot see a doctor and there is no money for medication.
*Ramesh has been overseeing several children's homes in the Godavari River Districts area in India since 2003. * Ramesh is an evangelist with an enormous passion for the underprivileged in society. There are currently hundreds of children in these children's homes. These children are taken in when the parents are no longer able to take care of them, one or both parents have passed away, or the child has been rejected.
The vision of *Ramesh and his team is to provide the children with a safe home, where they receive healing and recovery and thus blossom into strong, independent individuals rooted in the love of Jesus. Project Held also supports children in India who are half orphaned and live with their grandfather or grandmother. These are mostly poor families who need support.
