One pic of warm clothes worn by a person in need, makes us all warm!
Who are we doing this for?
Earth Saviours - India (Project White Boards)
Mr. Ravi Kalra is the President of Rotary Delhi Ridge and is running Earth Saviours which helps street kids in getting an education and food. He needed help in getting some whiteboards. Our members pitched in and collected money to get these white boards. We fulfilled the amount required within 5 minutes of this being presented.
We coordinated this effort Mr. Anuj Guglani from Delhi and Katial family in Delhi. To get these kids these much needed boards. This was the first project of our club and we are combining our resources to get much needed help to these kids.
Grace Home - Sri Lanka
Grace Care Center came to life when the Grace Girls Home opened on August 31, 2002. Grace Home offers a family community for girls age 5-18. The children are provided with safe shelter, food, an education, and access to medical treatment.
The Grace community gives the girls who live there opportunities which are not available to many Sri Lankan girls but are essential if these children are to succeed - training for a productive life (at the Vocational Training Center) and interaction with elders (the residents of Mercy Home).
The girls at Grace are the survivors of – and sometimes the witnesses to – the violence that has threatened Sri Lanka’s recent history. These children are also the nation’s future. The relationships that the children form at Grace will last a lifetime, and will help each of them grow in confidence, work through the tragedies of their lives and begin to trust others once again.
A sign in the Children’s Park at Grace Care Center explains: “Peace allows children the freedom to be children.” Grace Care Center gives its residents a place of peace. We need your involvement if we are to provide these abandoned children in Sri Lanka with a safe, healthy and nourishing place to be children who can grow up to a life that will help Sri Lanka break the cycles of poverty and violence which have dominated its recent history.
