Our adopted village in South India
We have adopted the very poor village of Sri Vaigunbam, which is 36 km from Tirunelveli. Richard, husband of our STB house mother, Sasees, is able to visit the village regularly and keep an eye on projects that include renovation and sanitation. The local people are overjoyed to have this support and welcome him with open arms. Richard has supervised a number of developments: Ten houses have had new roofs and we are currently working on the drilling of a borehole to provide a source of new drinking water.
Care for the elderly project
We are currently planning an entirely new venture to provide much needed care for destitute elderly people in the poverty stricken Sri Vargundam.
The purchase of one acre of land was completed in January 2009 in advance of the building of a home for 8 – 12 old people who have no acceptable shelter or regular source of food.
