Cuddalore – The birthday of K. Raja, a ‘special’ boy, was celebrated on July 16th at Don Guanella Boys Home. It made him very happy. The special occasion began with Mass for the boys, minor seminarians and guests. Dinner was served after Mass followed by birthday cake cutting and a cultural program by the boys. Raja’s parents died in a Tsunami in 2004 and he has lived at DGBH since. He is very happy and even with his limited knowledge, he is able to guide the other boys to be punctual in every aspect of their lives. It was touching that all the boys gave him wishes and prayed for him.
Vatluru – St. Louis Guanella, founder of the Servants of Charity, set a precedent by taking in three children in Switzerland. In India, there are many of these ‘Benjamins,’ least ones who need to be cared for. This is David; he was abandoned by his mother, but is now in the care of the Servants of Charity at Guanella Karunalaya. Through the Providence of God, he will have all that he needs to grow and become the man that God has intended him to be.
