With more than 26 million orphaned and abandoned children in India, the orphan crisis seems overwhelming. Widespread poverty and HIV/AIDS compound the problem and millions of children are vulnerable to disease, starvation and exploitation. But Bethel Gospel Church in Chandragiri Nagar is making a difference, one child at a time. Pastor K. Sudhakar, his wife and their church are meeting the needs of these children through a slum-child education program and a street-children feeding ministry.
In addition to these outreach programs, the Chandragiri Nagar church operates a children's home for 10 former-orphans that provides food, medical care, counseling and most importantly, the love of a family.
The cost to support these 10 children is only $385 a month (or $38.50 per child). This is a great opportunity for a U.S. church or group of individuals to partner with Bethel Gospel Church and transform the lives of 10 children.
