About CCIMA CHildren's Home
This home began in 2006 and has been supported by Orphan's Lifeline from the beginning. Many of the boys were beggars or were involved in slave labor before this children's home was started for them. The home has grown by 12 more boys since its inception. The boys are well taken care of by a loving Christian India family consisting of a church minister, his wife and their adult son. The boy's home has been visited numerous times by representatives of Orphan's Lifeline and it is an exemplary representation of the change that can take place in a child's life if give the proper care, love and support.
A country approximately one third the size of the United States, yet it is second only to China in population, being the home to more than one billion souls. More than half of this nation is coastal and it is bordered by Burma and Pakistan, the latter of which they have had a border dispute for some time. Air pollution is a serious issue and nearly all of the water is undrinkable due to pollution by raw sewage and pesticides. More than 47% of the young children are malnourished and there are 400 million under the age of 18. Poor infrastructure, slow to moderate social development and social inequity due to deep rooted political and cultural/religious conflicts have resulted in a large poverty line! Many of the orphans belong to social and cultural or religious minorities that live throughout the 550,000 villages in rural India. Poor social status has left these children with little or no help and many are subjected to slavery just to survive.
