There are currently about 12.4 million orphans in India today. India is home to the largest number of AIDS orphans in the world (the U.N. estimates children orphaned by AIDS as those under the age of 18 who have lost one or both parents to the disease). Even children with one surviving parent are often plunged into desperate circumstances, putting them at risk for trafficking, child labor or bonded servitude.
Little Flock Children's Home, founded by a FCC member Viji Camauf, is currently home to 48 orphans. When additional construction is completed, it will be home to 100 orphans. Every child who comes to live at Little Flock is a child who is rescued from a life of grinding poverty. At Little Flock, children receive shelter, food, medical treatment and educational opportunities. It is a place where they are nurtured, loved, and cherished. The FCC sends teams to Little Flock twice a year, typically once in summer and once in the New Year.
