Help abandoned babies in India

Rescuing Unwanted Babies

In addition to caring for 160 orphans and vulnerable children, St. Anthony’s Orphanage is taking in abandoned and unwanted babies. These babies are brought to the orphanage by local child welfare authorities. Most of these babies are unwanted girls. A baby stays at the children’s home for several months while an appropriate adoption is arranged with a caring family who live in India. Since this is a new program, the orphanage needs help with their baby facilities and transportation.

1. This project has been funded!To build a separate bathroom with bathing area for the babies and to build a separate playroom for children under two. Cost: $3,704.

2. This project has been funded! A vehicle to rescue abandoned babies quickly, and to take the babies for medical treatment and meetings with social services and adoptive parents. The vehicle would also be used to care for the other 164 children who live in the orphanage. Currently they hire taxis or auto-rickshaws. This would be a large cost savings.
Cost: $16,136
