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.

On the first anniversary of support, Miracle Home conveys its heartfelt gratitude & thanks to 1131 supporters & to Milaap !!!

—Miracle Home was established in the current location in 2011 for a rent of Rs.8000/- pm; which has remained same, thanks to the understanding of landlord. But now the landlord has indicated that property has been transferred to other family members and the land is planned to be sold.
—
In finding a new location, a few considerations based on current challenges and learning - have been identified. These have been shared in the attached file - "Miracle Home New location - reason & considerations".

Also attached is a request letter from Sivaji and Prema towards support for shifting to a new location with a long term focus for sustainability and stability..

Based on initial search, following is the summary:
—1. 10 years lease deposit estimated at Rs.30 lakhs. Rental option expected to be higher at Rs.35000 pm, with increase over time. Hence, lease option is better.
—2. Two months ago, Rs.7 lakhs, from the money given by Milaap supporters for running expenses, was put away in Fixed deposit towards building the fund for New location.
—3. Miracle Home needs Rs.23 lakhs more to find a new location that will give sustainability, safety and joy for children to grow up.

We have therefore increased the goal amount of this fundraiser to raise the 23 lakhs required for the lease deposit.

Kindly have a look at the 2 attachments.

 
Grateful as always for your understanding and support to provide the opportunity for 23 orphaned children to realise their potential and to Sivaji and Prema in their selfless initiative to provide a home of love and care to these children.

God bless!

Venkatesh
