We are proud to have Pastor D. Vijay Babu as our director over Redemption India. He oversees our 4 locations, as well as runs our main orphanage that currently has 30 children, and we are full to the max and in need of a larger home or a second home. What we won’t do is turn a child away.
Pastor D. Vijay Babu and our incredible teams go to the worst slums, brothels, dumping yards, and any place where hurting children and families. Many children and babies are often abandoned in the dumping yards as “trash”… We weekly bring food, mobile education and activities to several locations and try to be a consistent, positive role in their life in hopes they choose to come with us. It takes time to earn trust, and with no real child protective services, they have to agree to come to our homes.
Many pedophiles and human traffickers also lurk in these areas as well and these children are often assaulted and harmed in unimaginable ways. And unfortunately, many of these precious children regularly vanish without a trace.
