India Evangelical Mission currently has 150 children in two homes ( Mavelikara & Idukki ), and some children we support in their homes. Many of the children living in the IEM homes are not true orphans by definition. Some of them have at least one living parent, but are unable to survive without our help because of extreme poverty. It averages $25 US dollars per month to support a child through the IEM Homes. This small amount covers housing, education, clothing, food, medical care and a loving home-like atmosphere where the children are taught about the love of Jesus Christ.
India’s population is over one billion, and a great number of the people live below the poverty level. Several millions live in slums in make-shift cardboard houses, and the children become the victims of hunger and starvation. I.E.M. developed a ministry for the ill-fated, abandoned children by providing shelter, food, clothing, medical needs and a free education. The children’s ministry is one of the most effective and fruitful ministries of I.E.M. Many of the children finish high school, and are able to become productive citizens. Others even continue on in our Bible College and go on to preach the Word of God.
If you would like to sponsor one or more children, please contact us. We'll be happy to send you the name of the children(s), their photo, along with a short biography so you may pray for them specifically, and correspond right to them through I.E.M.
