Worldwide, millions of women and girls experience violence and discrimination and are denied an education, essential health services, and economic opportunities.
To change the status quo and turn challenges into opportunities, we must speak up for the rights of women and girls everywhere. When women and girls are safe, healthy, and empowered, they can help families and entire communities realize the potential of a brighter future and a better world.
The ministry of Vanitashray carries the burden to minister to orphans / abandoned girls, destitute women and widows in India. For the past 14 years , we’ve seen God’s faithfulness and grace that compels us towards the goal of reaching as many such needy and neglected women in our nation.
We are blessed of God to start a new Medical Clinic that will provide special medical assistance to these women and children in our community. What better occasion to start with, but on 8th March International Women’s Day!!
A free medical camp was organised by Vanitashray for two days and the service was received by over 500 hundred women and children. We want to thank our board of Trustees, Doctors and Nurses along with a team from USA, who gave their support. North County Christ the King Church, we appreciate your valuable support and prayers.
The local authority and the village contact people are very excited to see the medical service given to the community. To honour the widows, sari’s were distributed to 40 widows from the same community. Our hearts were moved with compassion in serving Â these women. We really hope to see this service carry on each month, to help the poor and needy women in the community. It’s a huge step of faith but we believe it is God’s will and He will supply all the needs.
“To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Nelson Mandela
We give all the glory to God and trust in Him for future steps that will lead us to be a blessing. Please pray with us, for local Doctors and Nurses, professionals who are willing to partner with us. Our heart is to serve the community in partnership with local people to see the project run in a long term by giving them the ownership.
Thanking you all for your prayers for us as a family. Alisha has two more final papers to go through, after which she soon will be graduating out of high school this year.
Appreciate you all, for being part of this journey with us.
Love and Blessings!!
Anu and Team
