New Mother's Waiting Room India

New Mother's Waiting Room



In taking care of high-risk pregnancies the mother is often ready to go home in a day or two but the baby has to stay in the nursery needing special treatment.


Recently a room was built adjacent to the nursery with six beds for mothers to stay so that they can move out of a regular hospital bed while waiting for their baby to improve. It is a simple facility and allows them to come and go to breast feed their babies. There is no charge for staying there. We need to make some improvements to this room and the courtyard between their room and the nursery. $2,000 will cover the cost for improvements.

Nutrition Program - 2019 India

Nutrition Program - 2019



Children who come to the care center are often missing key nutrients in their everyday diet. To help supplement their diets, the care center has a program that provides daily nutritious meals.


An annual donation of $1,440 (which equates to $120 per month) will go to funding this program for another year and allow the care center to continue providing nutritious items such as vegetables and protein to children in need.

our focus GOW is active in the following geographies:

  • 31 Million Orphans
  • 1/6 of Residents Live in a Slum
  • 10 Million Bonded Laborers
  • 4 Million Orphans
  • 50% Don't have any living Kin
  • 5.1 Million children are out of school

The children are just like our children. Only with a lot, lot less opportunities. They love to run. They love to play. They love to learn. And they long for someone to love them. They are just like our children.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

1 Corinthians 13

My heart has always been drawn to orphans and children in need, as well as widows. When I heard that GOW worked directly through their ministry in supporting and helping these women and children, I knew I had to be a part of that. And after traveling to India to see firsthand the impact of this ministry, I was deeply touched. I saw firsthand that GOW was having a major role in raising up lives that otherwise would have been discarded in the harsh reality of the life of the poor and forgotten in this nation.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
