Martur Kinship Church Home

The glamour of Bollywood and the vivid colors of Delhi have turned India into an alluring nation of burgeoning culture, exotic food, and unending possibility. These visions don’t tell the entire story of the nation. Overwhelming poverty creates an ever-widening gap between the rich and poor. Tumultuous, strained relations with neighboring Pakistan and China, a rising HIV prevalence, and deeply ingrained cultural discrimination make this beautiful nation a challenging place to grow up.

Life in India can be enchanting, exciting, and full of promise. But, for many orphans, life is more uncertainty and scavenging than glitz and excitement.The boys of Martur Mercy Home know all about this not-so-glamorous side of India. They’ve experienced the loss of their parents by diseases like tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. They’ve been left to care for themselves, struggling to survive as they build lives on their own.

The children are welcomed into Martur Mercy Home with open arms. Here, they find hope for a new future. In the home, they find a new, makeshift family. The other boys are their “brothers” and the caregivers act as parents. Together, they learn, play, and build a life together.

With your help, we can sustain these new families. In fact, when you get to know the kids of the Martur Mercy Home, you will become a part of their long-distance family. Your gifts will absolutely change their lives… and your life, too!
