About Rose of Sharon children's HOme
Rose of Sharon Home was established in 2004. When Orphan's Lifeline approved the home in 2006 for sponsorship, there were 12 children living there. In the beginning this home had no bathrooms or running water which lead to serious sanitation issues for the children. It caused sickness, disease and very poor living conditions. In 2010, the director was able to build a new building with the help of Orphan's Lifeline. With the added space the home has increased in children over the years and still has room to bring in more orphaned kids. The children are very happy here and are most thankful for being able to enjoy their childhood in a loving home. They have a large back yard to play in and their own vegetable garden where they can grow their own food
is 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.
