Over the past several years, HUMC has sent mission teams to a children’s orphanage in Berachah, India. In this effort, we partner with Children to Love International by providing support for the day-to-day programming needs of the ministry and to give witness to the love of Jesus Christ. In 2008, Children to Love began a partnership with Berachah Children’s Home. Berachah sits on the coast of southeastern India, in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Founded in 2000 by Kiran Paul, Berachah Children's Home has continued to serve as a haven for children orphaned or semi-orphaned by poverty, parent suicide or natural disasters. When possible, children are restored to their extended family.
