The Orphanage at Sarada Niketan, Uttara, Bhubaneshwar, India

Orissa is one of the poorest states in India and is a place for several primitive tribes. The 1999 cyclone orphaned several children. Swami Pranarupananda, who was ordained in Rama Krishna Mission, took up the task to save some of these children. Swamiji established an orphanage in Uttara, about 20 miles from Bhubaneshwar. The orphanage is housed in a small one room building and supported by several volunteers. There are 30 children and all are crammed in the same room. The children are educated in the near by public school. Swamiji takes lots of pains in raising funds to take care of these children.

HELP Foundation are supporting ten children at this orphanage.
