Featured Family Needing a New House

Please read the story of our current family in need of adequate housing.

India's poor families do not have the financial means to buy or construct houses with their savings, and therefore they live in huts with mud walls and thatched roofs, or whatever other materials they can find.


Mathai is the head of the family. His family consists of his wife and a daughter. He is the bread winner of the family. His wife Annamma [Selin] is a mental patient . Once she was paralyzed . Now she is getting better. But she needs the care and help of
someone always. So Mathai can’t go for the job. One Religious congregation, relatives and neighbors are helping them for the day to day needs. He owns 5 ½ cents of land. Their daughter Elizabeth Mathai [ Mahima ] is studying in 6’th standard. Their house is made of mud.  This family is in pathetic situation.

Alexander is the head of the family. His family consists of his wife Annamma and   daughter Aleena. Annamma is  a house wife.   Their daughter Aleena is studying in 9th class. Alexander  met with  Stroke, and he has Kidney problem, diabetics & heart block. He is unable to do any work. He needs much amount for medicine  every month. Their  life  situation is very poor. Their 5 cents of  land was given by VSSS 25 years ago. Their house was in a dilapidated condition. During last monsoon the area was flooded and  water entered into their house and it fell down.   Now, therefore,  they are urgently in need of a house.

Mr.Reji is 36 years old. Living with his wife and two kids. He is a coolie and the whole family depends on this only source of low income from Reji for their daily bread. He is living in a small tent. They have 2 cents of land. This poor family is asking our help to build a small house. Let us join our hands for Jesus. Thank you.
