India will always have a special place in our heart, since Martin and I met at Kolkata Children’s Orphanage 2 years ago and now, our firstborn son is due!
In honor of his birth next month, instead of a baby shower, we asked friends and family to contribute to our special orphan fund.
Kolkata Orphanage is dedicated to offering a home for some of the many street children in Kolkata, as well as operating a medical dispensary for the poor. The children attend an English Primary School Monday through Friday, with additional tutorials in the evening, where the boys can study and work on schoolwork. The children have formed a close-knit livng family and have adjusted well to school, as well as maintaining high standards and good discipline. In Kolkata the number of “street children” far exceeds the number of places for them to live. Another objective of Kolkata Orphanage is continue to run an on site medical dispensary offering medical care for the sick and the destitute. The medical care that is offered is free of charge to people of all ages and religions within our community.
