Our current projects in India are centred around the village of Muranpur in the Bangalore region.
The IAF have a relationship with the Neerekshe Trust (near Raichur) who are providing support to the villages surrounding and including Muranpur. This area is particularly susceptable to flooding.
IAF have funded (£8000) for the building of flood defences around a hospital on the Neerekshe Trust campus. The hospital will provide health-care to the surrounding villages, in particular the village of Muranpur.
The IAF have funded (£500) through the Neerekshe Trust sums for pastoral aid projects to help those in particular difficulties.
'Neerekshe'...'Hope' In the Village of Muranpur
Sixty two years ago, Shadrach was born in a remote village in the centre of India into the 'untouchable' agricultural caste. His parents were recent converts from the lowest Hindu caste to the Christian faith. He received an education and qualified as a teacher. However, he never forgot his roots or the great gift that God had given. He left the security of teaching, joined the church full time and between his evangelising consignments visited and provided for the villagers of all castes.
Nine years ago Shadrach started a village crèche project - it is called 'Neerekshe' which means 'Hope'. The Youth Groups at St Peter’s Church raise funds to provide equipment for the school, medical centre and orphanage - more...
