If you have seen the movie Slumdog Millionaire you've seen the face of the children we serve in Kolkata, India. Since 2007 we have been funding a food and basic medical programme for children that live in the gutters, pavements and rubbish piles of Kolkata. These children are surviving because of practical help given to them via supporters providing the bare necessities such as rice and plastic sheets to sleep under.

" What I love about Orphans Aid is that they are willing to take on children that other aid agencies will not. Most child sponsorship charities will only support a child if he/she are primarily cared for by family/relatives/community. Orphans Aid however looks after the totally abandoned child... the child who has no one what-so-ever. Orphans Aid are willing to foot the bill for housing, medical, specialist care (many such children have delayed development, speech, social & fine motor skills), education and most of all – love and nurture. Yes, sure its a far more costly exercise to look after orphans who have no-one... but doesn't that just make it SOO much more worthwhile?!"
