Urgent Need for Housing

orphan home   This building in Allahabad, India may not look like much, but to eighty orphans in temporary housing after being evicted from their former home, it looks like hope. The building is a former parsonage and has been deemed a national heritage site. It can’t be taken down, so it needs major internal restoration to be safe.

The eighty girls are shepherded and taught by Sister Sheeba, a woman who has devoted her life to caring for the needy. While they wait for this building to be restored a wonderful Christian man is paying for the temporary housing out of his own pocket. But he can’t do this on an ongoing basis.

It will cost quite a lot to restore this building, and then a Canadian Missions organization has a long-range plan to build a beautiful new home to house up to 150 girls. But that will take years. These girls need a home right now.

Can you find it in your heart to give? If so, use the paypal button and mention Allahabad Girls.

See a video of Sister Sheeba and some of the girls here:                                                                      



  1. Jan, I made a contribution but did not see where to designate it for Allahabad Girls. Can you track that and see that it goes to this need? Thank you, friend.

    • Hi Sharon, Thanks so much and I will give the contribution to Diana in person. I see her tomorrow. She and her husband will continue to work with this group of orphans.
