One of the first nations where we established an outreach was India. For nearly thirty years we have partnered with Reverend Thomas, founder and director of Feed My People, sending monthly support to provide food for orphans, support for pastors and elderly widows in need.
We are really grateful and thankful to all of Global Outreach donors for their sacrificial help.
As Feed My People has expanded, Global Outreach has been an integral part of building and supporting many new churches and orphanages. One of these is in the village of Kolluru. In 2003 there was a terrible cyclone and flooding that resulted in many deaths. So many children were orphaned that Reverend Thomas decided to open an orphanage in Kolluru. At first the children were kept in the homes of church members, some of them sleeping outside on a veranda. Pastor Thomas explains how they received funds from Global Outreach to purchase a permanent building for the orphanage:
When I cried out to God and when I requested Mum Harle, she was moved with compassion and sent money without delay. We are really grateful and thankful to all of Global Outreach donors for their sacrificial help. Most of those children are now married or studying in different vocational courses.
Recently eight children ranging in age from two to five years old have joind the Kolluru orphanage. Most of the children were abandoned by their parents.
Recently, eight children ranging in age from two to five years old have joined the Kolluru orphanage. Three of the girls, including a set of 3 year old twins, are siblings. Most of the children were abandoned by their parents and brought to the orphanage. One of the girls was found in a bus station by Pastor Prasad and no one knows who she is or where she was from. Yasni is now part of a family, receiving loving care with a bright future.
Taking eight new children into a family orphanage brings added expenses. Each child needs a blanket, a cot, and other supplies and clothing.
Taking eight new children into a family orphanage brings added expenses. Each child needs a blanket, a cot, and other supplies and clothing. Your gift of $50 will supply these items for one child, or $400 will take care of all of them. Your ongoing monthly gifts to provide food, clothing, education and medical care are always needed and greatly appreciated. As always, 100% of your gift will be sent to support the children.
