Statistics indicate that over 8 million children are homeless in our country and this number is speedily increasing each year.
It is estimated that there are over 850,000 orphanages operating in the country, providing shelter to young ones varying from 15 to 1,500 in number.
While those managing the orphanages provide food, clothing, education and other needs of the children, we in the BSI support their programme by supplying them free Bibles, New Testaments and other Scripture material suitable for the young ones, which provide spiritual nourishment. Last year we could distribute 8,500 blankets to various orphanages, besides Scriptures.
This year we have supplied school bags, note books and stationeries to the orphanage children, along with Scriptures.
