Let’s rebuild the Bal Niwas house

After rebuilding the Silvano Niwas house in 2018,which in its three floors is currently home to about 30 girls between 5 and 20 years old, during the trip of our volunteer Alessandro Leone between December 2018 and January 2019 another emergency was identified,this time concerning the Bal Niwas house, 100 meters apart from the other.

After the demolition of the Mother House, where all the male guests lived, Bal Niwas hosts nine children, among which the youngest is 5 years old and the oldest 13 (in the photograph his arm is fractured due to a fall). These children are taken care of by Payel and Anand, a married couple who in turn grew up in the family houses of the Good Samaritan Mission, and that now have a two-year-old son.

Unfortunately, Bal Niwas is now as dilapidated and dangerous as Silvano Niwas was. The plumbing system has leaks in several places and water infiltrations, which are also caused by the abundant monsoon rains that fall from June to September, are making the walls crumble. In addition, during the rainy season the house can take on up to 50 centimetres of water.

For this reason, a fundraising campaign to renovate the house has begun.

Help us turn Bal Niwas into a cosy home for the little Lakshman, Deep, Ganesh, Arvin, Kishan, Govind, Kartik, Ketan, Vivek, and for Payel and Anand, who take care of these children.
