Slum Life - Chennai, India

Stray dog sniffs at child's severely infected open wound.
Life in the slums are dangerous, painful and a daily struggle. Those who live in the slums are known as the lowest caste in India and have been labeled un-touchable. Hindu religion believes these people are being punished for sins in previous lives and should not be helped.

As Christians we know the truth, and realize it is our job to spread the gospel to all nations and demonstrate God's love for all his children by being his hands and feet on earth.

This image shows how basic the needs are for slum children. Shoes provide essential protection from the filthy streets. One small cut on a child's foot can easily get severely infected in these conditions and lead to major infections which can lead to death without proper medical care.

In the slums, medical care is a luxury. Street children, unable to care or provide for themselves, face the greatest threats against these harsh conditions. Compound the unsanitary conditions, contaminated water, and limited access to food and you can see just how dire the needs are in the slums.

By becoming a sponsor for just $29 a month, you can save a child from the slums and ensure they have access to clean water, nourishing meals, education and a loving Christian environment. As individuals we cannot save them all, but together we can save many!
