Liberty Children's Home
Liberty Children's Home, Andhra Pradesh, India, has a runner in the 2015 Virgin London Marathon. Liberty Childrens Home is a UK charity that supports the "Liberty Children's Home and Student Hostel", in the village of Chintalapudi, Andhra Pradesh, India. The Home, run by Pastor Hezekiah (pictured here), provides secure and safe living conditions, food, medical care and books for school. All the children either attend the government village Elementary or High School or local 6th form colleges.
The Home and Hostel can best be described as a large foster home, rather than an orphanage. Some of the children are orphans who have been living with aging grandparents, who find it difficult to provide for them as they grow, or with other relatives who find it increasingly difficult to provide for their own families as well as for extra children. Other children come from single parent situations or from family situations where, due to long term sickness, the parents are not capable of obtaining sufficient work to support their children. The Home can provide a respite period for the parents and, if the parents recover from their ailment, some of the children return home or, when old enough, return home to support their parents.
The charity is currently working on a "self support" project with the Home, to develop a buffalo dairy farm, which will eventually provide sufficient income to meet all the needs of the Home.
At Liberty Children's Home and Student Hostel we believe that every child is a gift from God into whom He has placed a potential. We strive to enable children to discover that potential, to dream big dreams about their future and give them the opportunity to shape their own lives.
