He Said We Are Following HIM
Save a Child is an orphanage started in 1987 by M.SunithKumar. The orphanage is home to children who have no one to take care of them. There are children who are as young as two years old to those who are pursuing post-graduate studies. The college-going children were once abandoned and unwanted infants picked up by Sunith Kumar. Taken care of by him as God’s own children, the orphans are now bright students growing up in the love of God
Some of the orphan children who had no hope whatsoever in life when they were practically picked up from the roads or handed over in a hopeless condition have also got settled in life – with jobs and also married.
The founder, M Sunith Kumar, had a well-paying job before his heart started beating for destitute children. When he saw an infant abandoned on a pavement in Hyderabad, he responded like the Good Samaritan in the story Jesus Christ spoke about in the Bible. Sunith Kumar had no means of taking care of an unwanted child but he responded to the situation as his heart dictated. No sooner, he found himself in more such situations. He even came across some infants abandoned in garbage bins. With whatever little means he had he started an orphanage where now what was literally in garbage bins has been turned into shining gems. These children have also been running two Christian bookstores as a means to get some support for the orphanage. Though running the orphanage means huge expenditure, Sunith Kumar, with his faith in God, responds in just the same manner as he responded when for the first time he saw an abandoned child. He gives all the children equal love and care, at all times.
Save a child
Making the differently abled stand on their feet
I do not even remember when I came to the orphanage. This has always been my home. I have got love and I have been cared of with so much other kids around us all the time, we are one big family.
We have seen miracles happen at our orphanage. There were times when we had no food to eat. All we could do was pray. And then someone would knock at our door with the food at just the right time. The hand of God is upon us as we continue to see such miracles even today
A lot of people, moved by God, and their desire to do something for orphans pay a visit to us. When they come and spend time with us, we also feel that we have not been discarded but our precious. The spiritual lessons that we also get in the orphanage also give us the emotional and mental strength to surge ahead in life
As I look back, I can only saw that this was God's way of showing his great love upon me by placing me in the orphanage when I had no one in the world who I could call my own.
