Sponsored Health Insurance

In the photo, you see Eli, from Barcelona, at the local park with Muskan and Sonu, two of the children we now look after! Yesterday, two of our volunteers from the US went to the orphanage and played with the children in the morning, and helped them with their studies and work for school in the afternoon and evening! We also received a very special visit from one of our benefactors, who helped place two of our orphans into our orphanage here in Delhi NCR: She was aware of these two children, Anish and Manish, who were living in what appeared to be forced labor, and she was able to rescue these children and settle them into the home with us. Yesterday, she came to visit the children, and she donated 10 kgs of rice, 10 kgs of "aata" ("whole wheat flour" in Hindi), some biscuits, and some chips for the children. Afterwards, she also decided to sponsor the Anish and Manish's health insurance for one year, for which we are extremely grateful. We would like to be able to offer each child health insurance, but we are unable to subsidize the funds, so we are constantly looking for new benefactors and contributors. If you are interested in helping us in our cause, please contact me!
