History: Jaranwala Children's Home was established in 2004 by a Christian man who saw that all orphan children in Pakistan were growing up alone and illiterate. They had no means to receive an education and no one from the community was helping them. These children were all orphaned by the death of their parents or they had been abandoned by their parents because they were unable to support them. The children wall lived in the streets or came from place labor camps and were very thin, malnourished and in desperate need of medical care. Orphan's came from slave labor camps and were very thin, malnourished and in desperate need of medical care. Orphan's Lifeline started to sponsor the home right after it began in 2004. The director cares greatly for all of these children and is taking a considerable risk by operating this home in an area that sees persecution against Christians in a country that is over 90% Muslim. This is also why it is very important to him and to all of us here at Orphan's Lifeline that each of these children receive a Christian education and that they all have their own Bible in their own language.
These children were all taken form the street and given the care and love that they deserve. There is a school on the property where all of the children attend and learn about Christ. We have space to take in more orphan children as we receive additional donors to join with us.
