JOY HOME ORPHANAGE
A Home for Street Children & Orphans
SERUDS started Orphanage in Budhavarapeta, Kurnool in December 2012. Today the Children’s Home shelters 60 boys and girls in the age group of 4 to 16 years. These abandoned orphan, street children come from different family backgrounds like a father who died of AIDS, mother who committed suicide, alcoholic father and mother left children and is living with other person, or both parents died. In this critical juncture These kids were found by Seruds in streets or volunteers brought the children to SERUDS Children Home. We believe that if these children are not taken care of they may become anti-social. We have rescued them and provided a safe shelter, education support, counseling and extracurricular activities like sports and games.
You are welcome to sponsor these abandoned orphan children for their education or living expenses. If you are not in Kurnool, you can send your friends to our Children Home to spend time with these kids. The children will feel that someone cares about their future and feel happy.
Donors are free to contribute any amount as desired, which will be utilized for the running of orphanage. You can celebrate your special day with the children, sponsor health care or sponsor annual expenses for a specific child. Profiles of these children and other funding options are available below.
Non Resident Indians (NRIs) who Sponsor a Child in Andhra Pradesh for education in our Children Orphanage, they can send their parents, family friends to the Orphanage to see the children and satisfy themselves about our transparency & accountability. We would be happy to receive them here.
