Grateful ! More help needed to support 23 kids at Miracle Orphanage

Miracle Manna Children's Home is a loving home to 23 children - orphaned by their natural parents at different ages- and embraced by the large arms and hearts of Shivaji and Prema. The couple began their unplanned journey desiring to welcome one child into their family through adoption. But the need for home for children orphaned by poor parents, some neglected and oppressed, grew systematically over the last 6 years to the strength of today, thanks to the couple's quiet resolve not to say no to a child in distress.

Despite their own economic background being modest. Shivaji had to leave his job as a driver, and Prema as a BPO staffer, to raise children and do all the physical work required to run the home, committed to providing the kids with good education and loving care. They go down to the bare minimum quite often and live with faith and dignity thanks to providential help of benefactors, like the Principal of a city english medium convent school charging a discounted fee of just Rs.5000 per child per year, to a land lord who has given a reasonably roomy home for a rent of Rs.8000/- pm., and other families helping them monetarily and in kind.

Funds required immediately is Rs.1,20,000/- to meet pending Home rent for 5 months, unpaid school fees for a few students , unpaid college fees for the oldest child of the Home, Marina, who is in 1st year BBA, and for food rations for the coming month. This would give immediate relief for the Couple to keep the Orphanage going.

Miracle home residents go through the ups and downs like any family - Change of season caused 3 kids chicken pox; keeping these kids quarantined was not easy, but luckily it hasn't spread.

Prema has unwell and is recovering at her relatives place . Certain older Kids are cooking and taken over Prema's work! Otherwise school, home work with kids helping each other, disciplined schedule of daily living with love and care is keeping MM going well.

The old donated bus, a critical vehicle that Shivaji uses to ferry 23 kids to school that is 15 kms away from home, and back broke down for the second time in 3 months. Clutch plate/cable change and tyre replaced done earlier cost Rs.28000 !

A used washing machine given by a kind donor was repaired to make it workable, which will give Prema and Shivaji a lot of relief as they were washing the clothes daily! Another donor has placed a small merry round for tiny tots and a slide for kids which will bring in new fun options from the routine seven stones ball play the kids had so far.

Christmas celebration was a high point for the kids. While a kind donor gave new clothes for a few kids, new clothes for balance kids were purchased by Shivaji bringing joy to the children!

Currently, Miracle home needs some basic amenities - a proper bathroom for girls and boys (currently boys have a bath under open roof and girls in the toilet - see picture enclosed), CCTV camera plus recorder to meet government guidelines for orphanages, broad band connection with router can enable them to put a used computer to work that will build computer skills among kids. These would cost an additional Rs.90000/- .

 Miracle home expresses its gratitude all the Milaap donors and invites you to their home . We need your support to keep the Miracle going!
