New Ark Mission of India - Home of Hope (IND-52)

Type: Health - Country: India

Brief description and main aims

The New Ark Mission of India was started in 1997 by Mr. T. Raja. It is an organization solely dedicated to rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying people of the streets. The Home of Hope is a centre of the New Ark Mission of India.

Today, the home accommodates and cares for more than 200 residents who have been rescued from the most inhumane and unhygienic circumstances. It is a place of solace and shelter for people who are suffering from AIDS, cancer and kidney failures besides many who are mentally challenged. The residents who were once disowned by their families and doomed to fend for them have found a new reason to live. These 170 residents would have been a statistic on the list of Bangalore’s unidentified dead if Raja had not reached them.

The New Ark Mission of India has marked a turning point for the destitute people of India. It has laid a true foundation for the transformation of lives of those on the streets. We are greatly honored to present this website to bring to light the work of this organization to a local and a global audience.
