Founders Note

“Do something to someone in need in some way to be someone needed”

I, Kasthuri Paulraj - a graduate from CMCH - Vellore, with State First Rank...though got a job in the USA about 15 years ago, yet chose to stay back and serve the children in need when 2 needy children were brought to us, to be cared as their parents were sick and dying of deadly disease. A humble journey of caring for the 2 needy kids, in the year 2007, became 100s over a period of time.

I consider this to be an honor to care for the children who lack parental love, care and protection. There’s no joy parallel when 60+ children call me, AMMA (Mom) at our KARUNALAYA Children Home, which is a Home and Hope for children in need and wherein they experience the joy of a family and care of a parent. In the recent times, we do receive number of children, those who are rescued by Govt Authorities from various social and domestic abuses and we are very happy to accommodate them to become part of our big family. We are very happy to work in partnership with the District Child Protection Unit and Child Welfare Committee for they do a tremendous task of caring for children.

Besides our care for children at our Karunalaya Children Home, we delight to care for the women and infants at risk, elderly, physically challenged, and children with educational help in the villages. We are happy to be a reason to cause a smile on the faces of hundreds of children, infants and women at risk and also the physically challenged, the elderly and the poor, irrespective of culture, color, creed and caste.

The ability in me to care for any one in need has been a possibility because of two reasons. Primarily, I was comforted, cared and educated, since 5 years of my age, by Rev.David and his German Friend Bacchman, while my parents were unable to. Some one’s sacrificial giving had transformed my life then, and now, it is my turn to help others in need. Secondly, this journey of serving the needy has been a possibility all these 15 years, because of the generous giving of many of our friends and well-wishers, both inland and abroad. We do acknowledge every one of our friends for their Trust in us and their generous giving which enable us to give hope to the Hopeless.

The objective of all our services is peaceful and prosperous community, through selfless service, for a better tomorrow!

With Sincere Thanks
